4781 Honeyridge Lane (Honeymoon Hill), Merritt Island

The DeWayne Carpenter / Kirk Kessel Homeselling Team just sold the property at 4781 Honeyridge Lane, Merritt Island for $1,450,000 located in the subdivision of Honeymoon Hill


The owners of this spectacular Honeymoon Hill estate on the Banana River got quite a deal when they purchased this home through Carpenter / Kessel back in 2013. Purchased as a short sale, this property needed a lot of work…after the seller put about $300,000 into the property it was finally “home” for them. After enjoying the property for a short time, they decided to relocate back up north. Since they had a positive experience with the C/K team when purchasing, they decided to list the property with C/K as well…which is awesome to sell the same property twice! After the marketing campaign was put into place, it only took 21 days to find a buyer for this property who paid almost 97% of the asking price. The C/K team was able to get such a high price for this residence because they recently sold the home across the street for a high dollar amount as well 4770 Honeyridge Ln. There are only 18 homes in the subdivision Honeymoon Hill and over the past 5 years the C/k team has had 5 transaction in this neighborhood. In the end, both parties were extremely happy with the seamless process provided by all the professionals involved including the lender recommendation from C/K.
