In case you missed the news earlier this year, former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has officially “moved out of the building” — the building that was his remaining home on the First Coast.

Bortles, 31, bought the home at 185 Admirals Way in the Harbor Island Estates community at Marsh Landing in Ponte Vedra Beach in July 2018 for $3,475,000 and sold it on April 28 for $5 million. The sale was first reported by The Daily Record in July, which identified the new owners as Donald and Rachel Hone, also of Ponte Vedra Beach.

The five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom home was designed and built in 2005 by its original owners, Shelley and Jim Houlihan, who sold it to the Bortles.

A floating spiral staircase leads to two en-suite bedrooms on the upper floor.

The Hulihans and their custom home were featured in a Times-Union story in December 2015 when the home first went on the market. As frequent travelers to Southeast Asia, the couple developed a penchant for the Eastern aesthetic, reflected in the clean lines that frame their views of the Intracoastal Waterway, along with the unique blue roof tiles—hand-glazed and imported from Japan.
