COMMUNITY AND SURROUNDING AREA:
Settled between the Indian and Banana Rivers, Merritt Island is Florida's largest island. The unincorporated town is the epi-center of today's space exploration programs. As home to NASA's Kennedy Space Center and other rocket-based companies like SpaceX, Boeing, and Blue Origin, Merritt Island is the place for space and the idyllic spot for viewing stellar launches! In contradistinction, this area is also a showcase for nature. The Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge is a 140,000-acre sanctuary, featuring habitats for 1,500 species of plants and animals. The Atlantic Ocean beaches are sixteen minutes away! Indianola Estates is one of the island's lovely residential communities. Homes here are situated on oversized lots, just around the corner from great shopping, tasty restaurants, and other everyday conveniences. Mila Elementary, Jefferson Middle School, and Merritt Island High are each within a five to ten-minute trip. The State Road 520 Causeway is a five-minute drive, taking you east to the beaches or west to the mainland and I-95.
On an acre of flourishing foliage and towering trees, a semi-circle driveway curves up to this handsome saltwater pool estate, and there's extra padding for your boat or RV! High-dollar improvements include two upstairs/downstairs air-conditioning systems, a water heater, interior paint, window treatments, and hurricane shutters....all newly installed in 2021. The solid five-year-old roof tops everything off!
A colorful rock garden entry with vibrant palms and plants enhances the home's bright red front door and etched glass sidelight. Inside, earthy elements accent the airy architectural style and modern upgrades. Tall ceilings and skylights arch over hexagonal terra-cotta tile and wood-look luxury vinyl plank floors. A sunny center atrium is ideal as an office, a Zen room, or an artsy studio. Formal dining steps down into a generous living area showcasing a wood-beamed ceiling, a splendid copper-manteled fireplace, and sliders to the pool. Filled with natural light and ambiance, it's an inviting space for gathering and entertaining your favorite folks! Quartz counters and a host of cabinetry course through the cooktop island kitchen crowned with a custom wood ceiling and accentuated with stainless steel appliances. Sunshine streams through a skylight over the delightful casual dining nook. After-school snacks and family meals held here! A sliding barn door opens to the comfortable first-floor owner's suite, accoutered with a HUGE customized walk-in closet, double sinks, a jetted tub, and a tiled shower with bench seating. Enjoy this attractive in-home getaway! Jazzy penny tile flooring and a modern stand-alone vanity create a charming contemporary half bath, convenient for quick 'pit stops' and party guests! The laundry room is equipped with a washer, a dryer, cabinetry, and garage entry. The garage's peg boards and pedestrian door are helpful additions during yard work and do-it-yourself projects. Up the home's open wood staircase, you'll find a loft, two bedrooms, and a full bath. Offering a bird's eye view of the bright casual dining area, the loft is a perfect spot for games and media. It could also be an easy conversion into a fourth bedroom. Glass French doors lead to a breezy balcony overlooking the pool area and beautiful backyard. The two bedrooms are serviced by a tub/shower bath and its stone-topped vanity. This second-floor setup is an excellent platform for kids, teens, or active in-laws.
Step outside for a long, relaxing breath of fresh air and a serene backyard setting. A spacious open-air patio curves around the saltwater fountain pool. At night, the pool's multi-colored lights cultivate a sense of flair and sophistication. Newly mulched garden beds with flourishing foliage enrich the outdoor experience, stretching out to an expansive grassy canvas with big trees and sunny liberal spaces. Wired with electricity, the large shed is prime for a she-shed, man cave, or hobby shop. It's also useful for storing lawn equipment and tools. A fence encompasses the property, creating a private island retreat. Time to make some memories!
Close to the river and the beaches, with fetching outdoor features and an acre to spread out and celebrate them! Interior architectural charm and captivating upgrades add to the appeal. This is luxury island living done RIGHT!
