Palatial estate on a lush tropical meticulously maintained 2.2 acres with close to 200 feet of riverfront on the Eau Gallie River. Located just across the river from Ballard Park giving quick easy access to the Indian River Lagoon. Different levels of deck and porches stretch across the back with picnic areas and lounging areas to take in the natural beauty of the river. A long private electronic gated pavered driveway leads to this east facing home.

On the path to the home sits a matching shed and guest house with front porch. The one bedroom, one bath guest house is complete with a kitchen and living room and is nestled far enough from the main home to be an ideal caretaker retreat. On the south side of the home behind a floral covered trellis is a secluded glistening stone pool and hot tub where a waterfall made to mirror nature flows from above, all of which is backdropped by a coordinating pony wall and mature foliage.

Inside this custom built home, the incredible views of the river are highlighted. Unique architectural elements reminiscent of a Franklin Lloyd Wright home, seize the senses immediately on entering this unparalleled work of art. Featuring gleaming hardwood parquet floors, 2 story stone wall, and rustic smooth cherry beams and handrails that contrast with the steel balusters of the multi-level staircase. From the foyer, step down into the massive living room with soaring ceilings, transom windows over sliding glass doors all with unique angles creating an eclectic rich aesthetic. Step up to the luxurious dining room that elevates this marvelously designed masterpiece with the fusion of island and Asian decor. A lighted stained glass wall feature adorns the wall over a huge built-in buffet and all topped by a vaulted ceiling.

The individual style continues to the kitchen and breakfast room. Stainless steel appliances and cherry linear cabinetry are embellished with ultra-modern hardware. The breakfast room has built-ins and a row of windows with plantation shutters. A half bath, huge laundry room and 2 car garage complete this side of the home. A study, guest bedroom w/ ensuite bath and a master bedroom suite comprise the west side of the home.

Downstairs, the contemporary staircase leads to an interior rock garden with windows across the back overlooking the river. Past this calming space, you enter into the guest suite comprised of a bedroom, living area, and full bath.
