1421 Rockledge Drive, Rockledge, FL 32955
COMMUNITY AND SURROUNDING AREA:
Rockledge Drive is a scenic, winding riverside corridor graciously marked with million-dollar Indian Riverfront estates. Showcasing various architectural styles, these properties are the cream of the crop and capture envious vistas of the wide-open waters. A seven-minute drive takes you to charming Cocoa Village, a quaint area with a riverside park, sidewalks lined with local boutiques, tasty cafes, and a historic playhouse presenting high-quality theatre productions. US Highway 1 is conveniently close, offering access to everyday conveniences. Neighborhood schools are all a five to thirteen-minute commute. Northrup Grumman, the Harris Corporation campuses, the Kennedy Space Center, and SpaceX are each less than half an hour. The State Road 520 Causeway is a six-minute trip, leading west to I-95 and east to the Atlantic Ocean beaches. Be at the beach in less than twenty minutes!
Facing 130 feet of gorgeous Indian Riverside frontage, this timeless brick beauty makes a bold statement. A semi-circle brick-pavered driveway swings up to the front of the home, graced with a sugar kettle water fountain, towering trees, and swaying palms. Across a narrow street are the glistening waterfront and the property's private covered boat dock. Around the side of the home is a wide second driveway to the estate's detached three-car garage. From the front porch, a striking set of double glass and iron doors open to a liberal foyer rolling out the home's impressive curved staircase and comfortably sophisticated spaces. Welcome to 1421 Rockledge Drive!
Vaulted and trayed ceilings exhibit soft, modern lighting above loads of windows showcasing the sunshine. Handscraped ¾” solid teak hardwood and luxury vinyl plank floors course throughout elegant living and dining areas. A beautifully broad bay window frames the sparkling riverfront in an expansive great room adorned with a centerpiece marble fireplace. Flowing into formal dining, there's plenty of room for a large table designed for feasting with your favorite folks, and sliders to the lanai add to the appeal. The sellers have this spot set up with a full-size pool table. Any way you arrange these spaces, they present a lovely setting for entertaining family and friends. A big quartz island with waterfall edging and a gas cooktop takes center stage in the bright kitchen surrounded by white cabinetry topped with glass-door display shelves. The refrigerator is cleverly disguised to match the cabinets. Bosch stainless steel appliances include double wall ovens, a stacked microwave, a warming drawer, and a wine cooler. A mosaic tile backsplash cascades across the walls, as a walk-in butler's pantry decked out with quartz counters, cabinetry, a sink, wine racks, and electrical outlets provides stylish storage for food and small appliances. Spacious casual dining and the island's seating for two encourage everyone to gather 'round the chef and graze! Three sets of sliders off the kitchen and dining area open to the yard and the two screened lanais, creating the perfect platform for indoor/outdoor get-togethers. Tall French doors lead to the first-floor owner's retreat featuring a bay-windowed sitting area with serene waterside vistas. A sizable walk-in closet sweeps through to the ensuite furnished with floating marble-topped vanities, indirect up-lighting, a tiled shower with bench seating, a jetted tub, and a slider offering personal porch entry. Two additional downstairs bedrooms each provide attached baths with solid surface vanities and sliders to the airy lanais. One of the baths also has an exterior door, presenting quick access for outdoor visitors. The home's snazzy chandeliered half bath is a chic 'pit stop' for indoor party guests. Equipped with pull-out hampers, an extensive quartz counter, lots of cabinetry, and passage to the garage, the big laundry room doubles as a mudroom. It's the ideal drop-off spot for wet swimsuits, backpacks, and sweaty sports gear! A pet door from the laundry area follows into a small room where the sellers house their kitty litter boxes. In this home, pets live as well as its people! A glass door opens to the covered breezeway leading to the detached three-car garage lined with sealed epoxy flooring, cabinets, a workbench, and a pedestrian door handy for ingress and egress during yard work. An air-conditioned room off the garage has been used as a 'she-shed', and would also be beneficial for climate-controlled storage.
Up the showpiece curvaceous staircase are the loft, two bedrooms, and a full bath. The abundant loft offers a bird's eye view of the first floor's living area and lays out a comfortable composition for additional living, media, or games. Each of the two bedrooms displays spacious walk-in closets and partial river views. The bath is appointed with two vanities/sinks and an earthy tumbled tile shower with prismatic insets. This second-floor expanse is an excellent set-up for kids or multi-generational living.
Two separate screened lanais boast tile flooring, distinctive features, and breezy lounging. A stunning water fountain sits in the middle of the largest lanai laid with terraceous travertine. It's a tranquil space for gazing out at the lush backyard and its rich tropical foliage. Two massive raised brick gardens provide a custom canvas for planting your favorite herbs, vegetables, or flowers. The second lanai is topped with a beautiful arcuated wood ceiling and flaunts fetching riverfront views etched with swaying palm trees and the covered boat dock. Multiple glass doors to these two amazing arenas add up to endless opportunities for indoor/outdoor mixing and mingling! Take the party out to the dock where there's extra room for lounging. You might even catch a glimpse of a dolphin jumping or manatees frolicking about!
This property's perks continue with impact-rated front windows, a whole-house generator (with buried 500 gallon propane tank!), two newer air-conditioning systems, a new irrigation well, and a rebuilt seawall. The landscaping and gardens are professional Susan Hall designs.
This remarkable estate is a luxurious presentation of refined riverfront living. You have officially ARRIVED!
