701 Atlantic Street, Melbourne Beach, FL 32951
COMMUNITY AND SURROUNDING AREA:
Gorgeous Melbourne Beach is a sleepy, slow-paced town beautifully tucked between the Atlantic Ocean and the banks of the Indian River. The tranquil locale heralds a charming mix of stunning ocean and riverfront estates, historic homes, newer single-family homes, and condominiums. Residents take pride in the area's broad sandy shores, vibrant outdoor recreational options, and marine life conservation. The beaches are a favorite spot for sea turtle nesting. The Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge stretches from Melbourne Beach to Wabasso Beach in neighboring Indian River County.
This epic oceanside estate is located in Melbourne Beach's fantastical 'Golden Triangle', an elite enclave where you'll find the most sought-after and most expensive real estate in Brevard County. It's one of the few areas in the entire state where you can purchase sizable oceanfront property east of Highway A1A. The quiet neighborhood provides four public ocean accesses and is within walking distance of conveniences along Ocean Avenue. It's a three-minute bicycle ride to Ryckman Park, a riverfront venue with historic properties, a picturesque pier, a playground, party pavilions, and gourmet restaurants. A five-minute cruise on the golf cart takes you to the Spessard Holland Golf Course, known for its challenging fairways and scenic greens. Gemini Elementary is a five-minute drive, Hoover Middle School is seven minutes, and Melbourne High is fifteen minutes. A four-minute trip takes you to the quaint local shops and eateries along Indialantic's Fifth Avenue, which courses over the Melbourne/192 Causeway to the mainland and I-95. High-tech companies like Northrop Grumman, Embraer, Honeywell, and the Harris Corporation are twenty minutes away!
Magnificently settled on nearly half an acre, landscape lighting, palm trees, and brick pavers escort you to this majestic creeping fig-covered oceanfront mansion. A metal roof tops the two-story fairy tale estate, recently painted in 2022. The custom-built property encompasses a heated saltwater pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen, a gas fire pit, a private crossover to the beach, a designated theatre room, a guest suite, a mudroom, and two laundry rooms (downstairs/upstairs). Superior construction includes fifty-one deep foundation auger-cast pilings and a hollow core between floor levels for ultimate noise reduction. Impact windows and doors with turtle glass surround the home with peace of mind and protection. The three-zone air conditioning system keeps everyone cool and costs under control. A propane generator powers two-thirds of the estate, including the theatre room. In addition, the home is shaft-ready for an elevator (plans available), and all wall-mounted televisions are included! The sellers have thought of EVERYTHING! Welcome to Brevard County's pinnacle of premier properties, a platinum listing worth every penny!
A tongue-and-groove wood ceiling covers the front entry, complementing a solid beadboard-patterned door. Inside, mid-century modern elegance mixed with timeless tradition enhances an impressive parade of bright, open spaces. Walnut wood beams span ten-foot-high ceilings in a charismatic formal living and dining room expanse punctuated by creamy, marbled travertine floors. A wall of giant sliders frames a striking snapshot of the crisp angles shaping a rectangular pool, an elevated spa, and the foamy, crashing waves of the blue ocean beyond. A massive wall of white stacked stone boasts a two-way fireplace, adding texture and warmth to the living room and the family room on the opposite side. A curvy chandelier hangs over the formal dining area, designed for a big table and festive affairs.
On the other side of the fancy fireplace, an inviting family room flaunts entry to the lanai and sun-infused windows granting glorious ocean views. An intriguing attached bath is adorned with micro-tile flooring, a wavy tiled shower, and a driftwood mirror, but it's the sink that grabs attention. The hammered stainless steel bowl exhibits fossilized fish impressions. A conversation piece for sure! This bath's exterior door offers easy access for water-soaked kids and outdoor guests.
Loads of custom walnut-veneered cabinetry with under-mount lighting courses through a contemporary gourmet island kitchen, cleverly disguising two Bosch dishwashers, a Wolf sub-zero refrigerator, and a Scotsman ice-maker. Dark grey veins dance across white quartzite counters, accentuating the sleek stainless steel of the Wolf double-oven gas range and griddle, a pot-filler, a vent hood, and a JennAir inlaid microwave. Ball-shaped pendants hang like ornaments over the extensive 10.5x5.5-foot island topped with a single quartzite slab. The island's seating for five makes it the perfect platform for afterschool snacks and grazing on appetizers while socializing with the chef. A walk-in pantry provides plenty of storage for feeding the crowds, and the reverse osmosis water filter system keeps everyone healthy and hydrated. Generous casual dining features triple windows overlooking the ocean and a glass door to the pool, providing easy access during indoor/outdoor entertaining. A built-in window seat off this space adds a cozy feel.
Off the kitchen, and next to the garage, is an innovative multi-purpose room with two separate spaces. A custom wall unit is equipped with a direct water line for a Keurig coffee maker along with cabinets for small appliance storage. A built-in coat tree and bench create a convenient drop-off for backpacks, shoes, and sports gear. The second area is lined with shelving, and it's just large enough for a small desk, suggesting a handy hub for arts and crafts. The adjacent three-car garage is outfitted with epoxy flooring, overhead storage, and a pedestrian door.
Also off the kitchen is the half bath, displaying a quartz vanity and a top-mount sink. This offers a quick pit stop for kiddos and party guests. A hallway closet houses the first floor's stackable washer and dryer unit, beneficial for washing sandy towels and wet swimsuits after a day at the beach.
Under the splendid staircase is an enchanting flex space. It's an excellent setting for a beautiful piano, a handsome office, or a lovely library where you can curl up and escape with a good book. What would you do with this charming spot? The possibilities are endlessly attractive!
A colorful squid-like chandelier swims above the captivating, masterfully crafted staircase. Sheer glass panels and rounded walnut handrails are a sophisticated and artistically understated invitation to the second floor.
Accented with solid walnut flooring, the upstairs is a congenial collaboration of fun and intimacy. There are five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a theatre room, a laundry room, and two balconies.
The theatre room is a jumbo step-down arena crowned with 10'4" ceilings. This indoor playground comes complete with a projector, a movie screen (which can double as a golf simulator), all electronic equipment, block-out drapes, and three closets for extra storage. The kitchenette is appointed with quartz counters, cabinetry, a sink, and a mini fridge. Stockpile your favorite snacks and drinks and gear up for high-tech fun and games, or snuggle in for monumental movie night marathons. Boundless options await!
Frosted French glass doors open to an ethereal primary retreat. Elevated two stories above the water, big picture windows boast a bonanza of beachside beauty. An expansive balcony laid with Dominican coral stone pavers encourages an up close and personal indoor/outdoor experience. Wake up to wondrous waterfront sunrises and fall asleep listening to the crash of the waves. Furnished with a sink, cabinetry, and a mini-fridge, the morning kitchen stands ready for freshly brewed coffee or an evening cocktail. These delightful daily indulgences are to be enjoyed on the balcony while basking in oceanside breezes. Double walk-in closets with custom organizers and a fabulous ensuite add to the relaxation and appeal. Beautiful basketweave-patterned tile underscores twin quartz sinks, a coordinating tiled shower with dual heads, and a freestanding soaker tub next to windows overlooking the ocean.
A second upstairs suite presents a walk-in closet and an attached shower bath embellished with bubble-themed tile and two sinks. Ocean views and balcony access give this set-up a beachy boost. It's a luxurious layout for in-laws, a lucky teenager, or special visitors. Be warned, with digs like this, your guests will never want to leave!
Three more bedrooms and a tub/shower bath with a colorful pebbled tile wall add to the mansion's multifarious accommodations. All bedrooms are cushioned with soft carpet underfoot, maximizing comfort and noise reduction. A charming loft along the upstairs landing is flanked by unique floral sconces and a glass door to a small balcony overlooking the front of the property. The spacious second-floor laundry room is conveniently close to all the bedrooms. A sink, a counter, lots of cabinetry, a washer, and a dryer make household tasks a little easier.
Doors from the living room, the family room, and the kitchen open to a spectacular seaside sensation. You may need a pinch to remind yourself that you're not dreaming, but this backyard experience IS dreamy. Dominican coral stone pavers stretch out to a breezy covered lounging lanai boasting a summer kitchen with quartz counters, a sink, a mini-fridge, and a gas grill hookup. The custom gas fire pit beckons all to gather 'round for warmth and conversation on chilly days and rainy Florida nights. The voluminous heated saltwater pool glistens in the sunshine, while the oversized spa promises moments of serenity and ultimate relaxation. All overlook a grassy backyard and a private beach crossover with deck space. A surround sound system sets the musical mood for lazy days by the pool and energetic beachside bashes. The outdoor shower is handy for rinsing off the salt and sand, and an outdoor rack is specially designed for surfboard storage.
This is the stuff dreams are made of, and here is where your happy ending BEGINS! This premier property is a shining gem in the middle of the 'Golden Triangle'. Welcome to the lifestyles of the rich, the fanciful, and the fortunate. You have reached the summit of seaside living!
