Stunning riverfront tropical oasis canopied in lush abundant horticulture including orange, lemon and mango trees nestled back on a 2.7-acre lot that is a secluded sanctuary for nature enthusiasts. A meandering driveway guides to a large parking patio and a side 3.5 car garage with room for golf cart or a workshop. A covered porch leads to arched double doors with glass inserts. On the back of the home, a massive wooden deck sprawls across the expansive length of the home and brick pavers surround an 800 square foot free-form heated pool with a 60-foot lap lane making plenty of room for floating and play. The deck flows to a walkway that floats over a secluded nutrient-rich pond that transitions as fish migration patterns evolve and different wildlife can be seen as the seasons change. Beyond the pond, 170 feet of shoreline on the Indian River comes equipped with a covered boat dock with lift and sundeck that floats on the deep water making this a perfect spot for boaters and water lovers.
This modern Hacienda-style residence features gleaming Brazilian cherry wood floors throughout the soaring two-story great room and dining room which comes equipped with a gorgeous wood burning fireplace. Above, a curved staircase winds upward toward a huge landing/study with windows all across the back with incredible views of the Indian River. The kitchen boasts custom cherry cabinets, high-end stainless steel appliances including a Viking gas range, 48” Sub-Zero integrated refrigerator, Gaggenau Island Hood, Franke double sink and Franke prep sink, Grohe faucets and granite countertops. A powder room is conveniently located between the kitchen and the garage door.
One of the main level bedrooms has French doors that open to the pool deck and shares a spa-like cabana bath boasting an oversized jetted tub with grab-bar, custom cabinets with marble countertops, and a walk-in closet with built-ins. A second bedroom makes this wing an ideal in-law or guest suite. The laundry room is conveniently located in this wing and is roomy with ample cabinetry, pantry closet, and basin sink.
Up the winding wooden curved staircase, the master bedroom suite has a sitting area with a coordinating cherry wood custom entertainment cabinet/fireplace and French doors open to an iron baluster balcony where you can take in incredible river scenes. Unique vessel sinks adorn the massive L shaped vanity which is covered in black granite countertops. The granite continues up and through the adjacent walk-in shower equipped with dual shower heads and body sprays. The large jetted spa tub is accented by the double-sided fireplace, making the perfect spot for a romantic soak for two. The walk-in closet is loaded with custom built-ins, and additional linen shelving in the bathroom make for ample storage.
From the master, make your way through the landing to find two additional bedrooms w/ ensuite baths; one of which contains an iron baluster balcony that mirrors the master balcony overlooking the pool and river beyond. Anderson insulated, low E windows throughout help with energy efficiency; the sprinkler system runs on well water, and the security system, central vac system, and smoke detectors add to convenience and safety of this residence.
