Property  

“RiverSong” is today’s classic tribute to the iconic mid-century architectural style of Frank Lloyd Wright. With its distinctive multi-tiered roof and landscape-hugging silhouette, this functional and architecturally stimulating home bears all the signature touches of  the greatly revered Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian design, including abundant brick and glass, and clerestory widows throughout. Nestled on a bluff overlooking the gorgeous Indian River Lagoon, the exquisite views of the morning sunrise and the moon- kissed waters of the evening are un-interrupted from most every room. A 110-foot dock, just steps away from a glistening built-in swimming pool, further accentuates the relaxed and casual feel of the times.  Designed and built by the architect owner in 2012, this three bedroom, two bath, 1680′ floor plan follows the characteristic style for this period home. In addition to the suburb construction, this property is sitting on a lot with 160ft of Intracoastal water frontage.

Residence 

With many ultra-modern and incredibly “hip” features incorporated into the design, you step onto a property that looks like a showpiece but feels like home.  The open living area is designed for conversation-filled dinner parties, with spectacular views from every angle. Amazing solid mahogany doors and windows, Florida Cypress siding, recessed fixtures, dual multi-zoned theatrical lighting, zoned audio system, tankless water heaters and individual room AC/Heating systems complete this iconic masterpiece.

 

Location 

“RiverSong”  sits on a 150′ long bluff of direct Intracoastal riverfront, affording stunning and unmatched panoramic views of the Indian River. A short walk along the sidewalk leads you to the town’s riverside public park and playground, ShoresidePark.  Centrally located in Brevard County with very easy access to I-95 and Orlando (45 minute drive), Melbourne has an InternationalAirport and Greyhound Bus Terminal  just 10 minutes away.
