COMMUNITY AND SURROUNDING AREA
Tortoise Island is an elite Satellite Beach community graciously sprawled along the glistening Banana River and its navigable canals. This lovely enclave of luxury waterfront estates presents a grand gated entrance protected by a twenty-four-hour guard. Once inside, 210 acres showcase beautiful million-dollar-plus properties displaying various architectural styles, tropical landscapes, and private boat docks. A medley of resort-quality amenities includes a sparkling pool, tennis courts, a clubhouse with a sauna and fitness room, a playground, and a community boat dock and launch. A twelve-minute bike ride takes you to the opposite shores of the Atlantic Ocean beaches. Hightower Beach Park is a public venue with broad sandy shores, a picnic pavilion, bathrooms, and showers. Highway A1A is nearby, offering a host of shopping, restaurants, and everyday conveniences. Sea Park Elementary is a five-minute drive, Delaura Middle School is seven minutes, and Satellite High is a nine-minute trip. Patrick Space Force Base is just around the corner, while Northrop Grumman and the Harris Corporation are an easy twenty-minute commute. It's six minutes to the Pineda Causeway, leading to the mainland and I-95.
This unique Banana Riverfront estate features a NEW $200k stone-coated steel roof, a whole-house generator, solar-powered electricity, a geo-thermal heated pool, and an extended dock! A $60k elevator is a luxurious alternative to the home's eye-catching curved staircase, and LED lighting throughout keeps costs down.
The abode's crisp white exterior creates a bright, fresh outline against the clear blue coastal sky. Thick tropical plants and trees and the driveway's brick paver accents add texture, color, and curb appeal. Lionhead porthole knockers adorn the double-door entry, opening to an airy front courtyard. This breezy Shangri-La features a recently resurfaced saltwater pool and spa surrounded by stone slabs, leafy plants, and rock gardens. A bridge over the pool leads to a glass French door entrance, introducing an abundance of architectural features and expansive spaces.
A spiral stone rug, a cylindrical ceiling, and the curvaceous staircase create a commanding first impression, as sunshine streams through supersized windows, bouncing off tile and hardwood flooring. A formal living room leads into a spacious formal dining area, calling for large-scale affairs. A multi-dimensional ceiling covers a commodious granite island kitchen, showcasing a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, double wall ovens, a flat-top stove, and scads of white cabinetry. Palatial ceilings tower over big picture windows and a marbled fireplace in the capacious family room, artistically crafted with radiant river views. It's an impressive stage for gathering and entertaining!
Several glass doors surround a first-floor flex room flaunting access to the pool on one side and the screened riverside porch on the other. Walls of cubby-style shelving create easy storage for swimsuits and towels. Open up the doors and celebrate a seamless indoor/outdoor platform for pool lounging, riverside fun, and alfresco extravaganzas! This room could also serve as a living space to the adjoining suite which offers a slider to the dock, a kitchenette, and a tub/shower combination bath with a door to the pool. What a lovely set-up for the in-laws or multi-generational living.
Coastal-themed etched glass doors open to the home's elevator service, taking you to the second-floor hallway and up again for direct delivery into the owner's suite. Another attractive choice for ascending the floors is the curved staircase. At the top is a sizable loft presenting a plethora of possibilities for media, play, or theatre. This level also provides four additional bedrooms. Three of those grant walk-in closets and ensuites. One of the baths is a tub/shower combination. The other two are showers. In one of the suites, double glass doors open to a mini balcony overlooking the front of the property. Two large hall closets are equipped with washer and dryer hookups. So many rooms can result in more people, and more people mean lots of dirty clothes! That's where these second-floor facilities come in handy.
Up another small set of stairs is an arched double-door entry to the jumbo owner's retreat. Big bay windows flaunt stunning riverscapes. The views from this room are the best in the house! An attached room is ideal for an office or exercise pad. A morning kitchen offers a nice spot for coffee, cocktails, or midnight snacks. The HUGE walk-in closet is outfitted with built-in shelving and dressers, while the ensuite exhibits a frameless glass shower, a stand-alone corner tub, and a stone vanity with matching vessel sinks.
Back downstairs, a sizable laundry room has cabinets, a sink, a built-in desk, washer/dryer hookups, and entry to the three-car attached garage. This is a simple set-up for dropping off groceries, backpacks, and shoes. The garage's pedestrian door makes it easier to complete yard work and at-home projects. A first-floor half bath, embellished with a stair-step ceiling and pedestal sink is perfect for party guests and quick pit stops.
Sit back and relax on the screened lanai overlooking an open-air graveled patio, lush mangroves, the property's lengthy dock, and ravishing river vistas. It's a breezy backyard companion to the front courtyard's sparkling pool. Off the pool is a catering kitchen/storage room and a half bath, both helpful commodities for water-soaked kids and fresh-air fiestas.
This property is designed for a special kind of buyer. A buyer who likes to live life to the fullest, who isn't afraid to add some vision, put forth personal flair, and create a canvas of class and character. This riverfront estate is ready and waiting for a family who will make this house a true island HOME!
