The Schurman Home - Jacksonville, Florida

Published on 11 June 2024 at 19:10

Welcome to the second home on our virtual home tour featuring the stunning residence of my dear friends, Terri and Terry Schurman, affectionately known as Mr. and Mrs. T. They had this beautiful home built in 2022, and Mrs. T. has masterfully decorated every inch with a charming coastal vibe that truly captures the essence of Florida living. Their home, filled with warmth and character, is also shared with their dog, Harley, and two cats, Leo and Loki. The Schurmans have three daughters and one adorable grandson, Holden, who was born in November 2023. Known for their generous hospitality, Mr. and Mrs. T. love opening their doors to friends and family and creating lasting memories.  A heartfelt thank you to Mr. and Mrs. T. for graciously allowing us to explore their exquisite home and share in their joy.  And without further ado, let's get started!


The exterior of this home radiates coastal charm, perfectly complementing its large lakefront lot. 


The expansive entryway leads into an open concept kitchen, living room and dining room.  


The kitchen is one of Mr. and Mrs. T's favorite parts of the house.  They both enjoy cooking and making memories with friends and family over a great meal.  When designing this kitchen, Mrs. T. spent countless hours searching for the perfect piece of quartzite for the countertops.  She finally found it at Destack Countertops in Jacksonville and they created a professional video featuring this installation (to watch, click here).

Living Room & Dining Room

The living room has a light and airy ambiance and I love how the stone on the fireplace seamlessly blends with the room's bright atmosphere without making it feel heavy. The large sliding doors offer a perfect view of the back patio and lake. The dining room is ideal for family meals, and since Mr. and Mrs. T love wine, they had a custom wine holder and wine cooler built into the space.  Additionally, Mrs. T, a talented crafter, made the beautiful cornice boards adorning the dining room windows.

Primary Bedroom & Bath

The primary bedroom boasts stunning windows overlooking the backyard and lake. I adore the chairs placed in front of these windows; they're not only stylish but also provide a perfect spot for reading. The primary bathroom is unique with its double vanity tucked into a corner. The luxurious tub and shower create a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere.

Laundry Room with Dog Wash

The laundry room is designed with convenience and functionality in mind, featuring a built-in dog wash station that is perfect for giving the Schurman's pup, Harley, a bath. This practical addition makes it easy to clean dirty clothes and muddy paws all at the same time!

Home Office

Mrs. T. is using one of the main-level bedrooms as a home office.  The fluffy flamingo makes a bold statement on the desk and the light fixture is an amazing centerpiece for this room.  

Main Level Guest Bathroom

All of the elements in this room blend perfectly to create a classy coastal guest bathroom.

Bonus Room, Guest Bedroom & Bathroom

This space is perfect for guests.  The bedroom and bathroom are cozy and comfortable and the bonus room provides an extra place to relax or watch TV.  

Backyard Bar & Pool

The Schurmans' custom-designed their backyard oasis.  The patio features travertine tile, and the pool includes a beautiful sun shelf and bar stools in the shallow end. Under the pergola, they built a stylish bar, making this the perfect spot for enjoying summer fun with family and friends.


Thank you for joining us on this virtual home tour of the Schurman's' beautiful residence. We hope you enjoyed exploring their stunning spaces, from the custom backyard oasis to the light-filled living areas. I truly appreciate the Schurman's for allowing us a peek inside their lovely home. The style and warmth throughout each room are a true testament to Mrs. T's exceptional decorating touch, making this house a welcoming and cozy place to call home.
