One of a kind river to river property on 3.18 acres with 236′ frontage on the Banana River and .19 acres with 100′ frontage on the Indian River. Both waterfronts feature innovative ThruFlow docks that are meant to withstand heavy winds and water surges. Private iron gates open to a meandering driveway lined by a white equestrian fence, grassy pastures, fruit trees, sprawling oaks, and tropical foliage. The home sits elevated from the shoreline and has vast views of the river from the covered lanai. A charming gazebo on a decorative pond sets a serene scene set between the expansive glistening pool and pavered patio and the covered dock on the river.

Craftsman style home reminiscent of a southern, country farmhouse with a welcoming pavered front porch where rocking chairs or a swing are a must. Custom built home with the utmost attention to strength, every material used was thoughtfully planned to withstand the weather and a minimum of wood products were used in the structure. Featuring heavily caulked and sealed hardy board plank over a concrete poured construction, Miami Dade rated steel formed columns filled with concrete, a unique three roof system using titanium plus steel & stick shingles and storm shutters for all the windows cover the glass and doors.

Inside stained, hand-scraped oak floors ground the floor making a warm, inviting entry, while crisp white trim and crown molding evoke modern styling in the living spaces. The abundance of windows and doors bring the outdoors in and allow the natural light to fill the space. This traditional style home opens to an impressive foyer leading to a colossal great room with vaulted planked ceilings. The towering wood-burning brick fireplace surround brings the eye up and serves as a focal point. Sunlight streams in from the arched windows and the doors across the back.

An elegant, generous-sized dining room flanked by two decorative columns, is positioned at the front of the house. The kitchen is open to the great room and boasts granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, two-toned cabinetry, center island, tile backsplash, breakfast bar, and pantry. Windows surround the breakfast dining area with incredible views of the river. Nestled between the kitchen and the garage is an office nook with windows all around along with a full bath nearby. On the opposite side of the home, a large but cozy family room with fireplace makes a great man-cave or relaxing space. The family room is serviced by a half bath.

The master bedroom suite has incredible views of the river and a luxurious bathroom with double vanity crafted from rich, dark wood and topped with quartz counters. The room is grounded in a neutral tile floor that also encases the garden tub, and extra large shower. Just outside the master is a conveniently placed laundry room.

Upstairs the wood floors continue, and a catwalk overlooks the great room. On the North wing two large bedrooms, both with water views, share a full bath with modern accruements. On the South side, a pass-through room with dormer windows could be an ideal exercise area, office, playroom or whatever you desire. A huge bonus room would make a great theatre, and the fourth bedroom has ensuite bath. This entire South wing could be easily converted to a fabulous in-law suite. Home has a two car attached garage and a three car garage outbuilding providing flexible space for multiple vehicles.
