COMMUNITY AND SURROUNDING AREA
Riverside Drive is a beloved coastal corridor that leisurely meanders along the historic Indian River. Gorgeous riverfront estates line this beautiful boulevard from north to south. The sandy Atlantic Ocean beaches are within biking distance. A ten-minute ride takes you to Canova Beach, a dog-friendly public oceanfront venue with picnic spots, restrooms, and rinse-off stations. This northern stretch of Riverside Drive is close to the Eau Gallie Causeway, leading to the mainland and I-95. The causeway's pedestrian path over the river offers a breathtaking backdrop for daily exercise and frequent dolphin sightings. Indialantic Elementary and Hoover Middle School are a seven-minute drive. Melbourne High is thirteen minutes. Highway A1A is just around the corner, touting a long list of shopping, grocers, delicious restaurants, and other everyday conveniences. Patrick Space Force Base, Northrop Grumman, and the Harris Corporation are all within a seventeen-minute commute. The Orlando International Airport and the theme parks are about an hour away!
Introduced with an electronic gate, a winding driveway enhanced with thick tropical foliage ushers up to nearly two acres of impressive riverfront property and a MAGNIFICENT estate-style home. A massive pond, designed for a canoe or row boat, is embellished with a charming bridge to a grassy area with a bench purposed for reflection and communing with nature. Branching off in several directions and providing plenty of parking options, the driveway travels up to the sideload garage, a central brick-paved parking pad, and off to the property's north side. The garage has two bay doors and a third portal wide enough for a golf cart, an ATV, or a riding lawn mower. The brick-paved parking pad sits ahead of the home's front approach. The step-up porch offers sitting space for gazing out at the beautiful forward-facing amenities and a unique metal and wood double-door entry welcoming you into this remarkable home.
Before entering this prime property, here's an overview of your tour. The main floor encompasses all living and dining areas, an office/library, two bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and a laundry room. From the main floor, one staircase leads down to a large basement, and another leads up to the primary suite. A third set of stairs climbs up to the top-floor loft. Four HVAC systems, two water heaters, and a security system add cost-efficiency and peace of mind.
A premier foyer is topped with a rafter-style wood ceiling and transom windows. Straight ahead is a grand great room granting a dramatic, vaulted wood-paneled ceiling, a formidable floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace, and an oversized slider framing pulchritudinous pool and riverside views. A wall unit with cabinets, shelving, and custom lighting is made for media and treasured art pieces. The capacious kitchen is sunlit with a skylight and centerpieced with a big butcher block island equipped with a Thermador cooktop and a prep sink. Surrounding this is a plethora of cabinetry, quartz counters, a stainless steel wall oven, a stacked microwave, a tiled backsplash, a walk-in pantry, a desk designated for recipe research, and a wood-paneled refrigerator and dishwasher to match the cabinets. Spilling into the casual dining area, a glass door leads out to the lanai, promoting easy indoor/outdoor entertaining. Between the kitchen and the great room is a sizable, rounded wet bar with cabinets, a sink, and windows to outdoor counters established for passing food and drinks to the poolside crowd. A swinging door from the kitchen opens to the elegant dining room outlined with chair rail details, a bay window, and a lovely glass-door China cabinet with lighting. This space is also accessed from the foyer, presenting a cultivated way to receive your most esteemed dinner guests! At the front of the home is a glass door entry to an office/library lined with crown molding and built-in cabinetry and shelves. A main-floor hallway houses two bedrooms with attached full baths, a half bath for visitors, and access to the staircases. One of the bedrooms proffers a slider to the lanai, river scenes, and a shower ensuite with an exterior door to the pool. The second bedroom displays a walk-in closet, a personal brick-paved patio looking out over the grassy side yard, and an attached tub/shower combination bath. The home's generous laundry room affords a washer, a dryer, a sink, cabinets, and a counter for folding clothes. Two exterior doors provide access to a side patio and the garage. There is also a shower bath, which comes in handy during do-it-yourself projects and yard work.
Basements are a rarity in the state of Florida...and this one is BIG! A flight of stairs leads down to this spacious room perfect for exercise, crafts, games, media, an in-home classroom, or guests. There are several closets that include a HUGE walk-in with double doors to the outside. This closet is a room in and of itself. Buy this property, and you'll be one of very few Floridians who have a true, full-blown basement!
The second floor comprises the primary suite. On one side of the landing is an etched glass door to an exterior staircase leading down to the lanai and outdoor amenities. Across the landing is the owner's retreat. A sweeping suite showcases a corner slider to the private balcony overlooking ravishing riverfront views. It's a soothing spot for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Posh perks continue with a bay-windowed sitting area, two closets, and a deluxe ensuite. Quartz counters flank an island vanity parading double quartz sinks, a freestanding tub, and a tiled shower with penny-tiled flooring and bench seating. The oversized water closet includes a stacked washer and dryer set, creating the ultimate convenience for last-minute loads.
Off the second-floor landing is the third set of stairs climbing to the home's top tier. Capped with a vaulted ceiling of windows, this sunny loft is appointed with living space, two closets, and a wrap-around kitchenette with a sink, counters, and cabinetry. A scenic balcony boasts a bird's eye view of the water. It's an ideal setting for an art studio, a home theatre, a game room, a hobby hub, a she shed, or man cave.
A custom wood-paneled ceiling crowns a spacious, shady lanai designed for luxuriating and basking in the riverside breezes. A sunny patio and bright, flowering plants surround the jumbo, newly screened pool and spa, backdropped by the waterfront's astounding views. The covered boat dock is equipped with electricity, water, and a lift. There is additional dock space for leisurely lounging. Fencing along both sides of the property offers paramount privacy during alfresco fiestas and memorable gatherings with family and friends.
Gorgeous grounds, airy outdoor amenities, dazzling waterfront vistas, and a splendid home with scads of space. It's the consummate composition of coastal character and luxury appeal.
