Record Sale
6485 N Highway 1, Melbourne 32940

Highest Price Per Foot Intracoastal Sale Since June 2010


The DeWayne Carpenter / Kirk Kessel Homeselling Team represented the seller in the sale of 6485 N Highway 1 in Melbourne, a 5700+sf custom built estate with 175 ft. on the Intracoastal. This property closed in June 2016 for $2,050,000 ($358 per square foot).


This is the second time the Carpenter / Kessel team has had the opportunity to sell this spectacular residence. This time we were able to find a buyer without the property ever formally coming to the market. It was a record breaking price per square foot sale the first time the C/K team sold it in 2012 at $335 per foot…this record has stood in place until the property resold a second time in June 2016 at $358 per square foot. This marks a record sale for an Intracoastal or Banana River home over 4000sf in the county. This sale surpasses the previous record sale in December 2010, when Carpenter / Kessel sold 2780 N Riverside Drive at $333 per foot.

The Carpenter | Kessel team holds sales records for almost every significant real estate category in Brevard. We truly understand the waterfront and luxury market in Brevard County.
