The "Spanish Revival" influenced main house was built in 1924 and overlooks the historic and scenic Indian River Lagoon (IRL). Beautiful morning sunrises and abundant wildlife accentuate this property and home. There are regular visits from dolphins, manatees, osprey, heron, pelicans and the occasional bald eagle. The views from the property are sometimes occasioned by rocket launches into space from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral just a short distance away.'||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'Situated on over 1.7 acres of land this historic property is easily and equally divisible adding to its overall value.

This ideal and perfect waterfront location also offers a number of invaluable amenities ... including a deepwater boat moorage and a separate boat ramp for launch and recovery. It has direct access to the IRL and the deep water navigable Intracoastal Waterway. The boat ramp ... which offers easy ingress and egress to the Intracoastal Waterway and IRL ... is a unique asset. Under today's more stringent construction codes new construction would not be allowed. However, this grand-fathered boat ramp is now a priceless and invaluable asset with its easy access to the many uses of the IRL. '||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'Overall, this unique and exclusive property combines a large lovely and easily manageable land area with a beautiful and historic home that has modern amenities and is ready now for immediate and luxurious occupancy. '||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'This home and property will warmly and quietly exceed your expectations of comfortable, impactful and enjoyable living while blending effortlessly into the sub-tropical Florida landscape. The home and it's interiors accentuate and enhance the overall living experience. It's complimentary parts are warm, comfortable, and modern while elegantly simple and functional in it's wear and design. The overall workmanship and construction of the home is outstanding ... reminiscent of an earlier era where quality and craftsmanship were the norm and the materials were un-matched. A recent renovation is of the highest quality. The home is almost entirely floored with hard wood ... much of it original old growth Merritt Island pine. The entrance foyer presents a spectacular yet subtly beautiful inlayed-hardwood design that will impress you both in its presentation and its overall craftsmanship. A beautiful multi-leveled and multi-accessed staircase ascetically centers the home and seamlessly joins it with it's accompanying parts. '||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'As you enter the home through the foyer and ascend the traditional wood staircase to the second level you immediately enter the second floor living area or "loft" as it is fondly referred to by the family-in-residence. Adjacent to the "loft" there are three bedrooms ... one of which is a unique and incredibly livable and luxurious master suite. On the second level there is also a full-bath, a utility room, and an office. The "loft" is a full sized sitting area or second family room. The utility room is equipped with washer and dryer centrally located for easy use. The master suite ... arguably the most dramatic and functional center of the entire home ... is a multi-room full water-frontage masterpiece ... that offers a bedroom, a sitting area, a walk-in closet with a dressing area and a beautiful and elegant bathroom that hosts a clawfoot tub to soak-in while admiring the stunning and peaceful views of the IRL. '||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'Although the master suite itself provides the perfect secluded in-home getaway ... the "loft" is the centerpiece that ties the second level living area together. With its adjacent office ... the "loft" offers family intimacy especially when entertaining guests, including those sometimes pesky overnighters. The office ... is easily accessible from both the "loft" and the master suite. It is both private and comfortable ... while also offering amazing views of the IRL. '||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'Not to be forgotten ... when you descend down again to the lower level of the house you are reminded how the home offers comfort and elegance in its simplicity and warmth while also again offering those dramatic and inspiring vista's of the IRL. On the lower level there is a large sun room or "piano room" ... a formal living or dining room ... a large modern remodeled kitchen ... a 1/2 bath ... and a very comfortable and sunny family room. All of these rooms have large and inviting windows allowing for dramatic and wonderful views of the IRL and the lush landscape. The kitchen and family dining area is both beautiful and functional with abundant granite counter space and a double farm sink. It's subtle and soft hidden counter and soffit lighting provide functionality while also enhancing the warmth and comfort of this most personal of family spaces. The family room which is situated off of both the kitchen and the living room is a comfortable and intimate family space as well as a natural conduit to a large screened-in pool area with an accompanied mother-in-law suite with easy access to a two-car garage. '||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'The pool, recently renovated, is unique. It's size and 8 foot deep-end depth harken to an earlier era of pool design and use. There is a separate 1/2 bath on the pool deck allowing swimmers and sunbathers an opportunity to freshen-up and change into-or-out-of street clothes without the inconvenience of guests needing to enter the main home or mother-in-law suite. The afore-mentioned poolside mother-in-law suite is an open and warm space that is equipped with a full kitchen, a full bathroom and a comfortable and inviting living area. The suite can also be used when entertaining guests who may also be enjoying the outdoor ambience, the pool and antique paver-tile deck.
