The distinctive gated community of Turtle Bay is perfectly situated just steps from both the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River. The choice neighborhood boasts private beachfront space on the ocean with a cabana, bbq grill, showers, and lockers for personal belongings. The community also provides riverfront access with a dock for kayaks or canoes. Sports enthusiasts will be very ‘well-served’ at the tennis courts!
This Melbourne Beach home is pronounced with a striking circular driveway of white and red brick pavers, manicured tropical landscaping, tile roof, and columned entry. Inspired by the European coastline, this property showcases imported Italian tile flooring, a Moroccan-style fountain pool, and coral stone accents. 12 and 14-foot crown molded and tray ceilings, along with graceful archways create architectural interest. Natural light dances through white plantation shutters across open, sun-infused living and dining spaces. Formal dining is elegantly outfitted with a custom cut-out, ideal for framing a buffet chest. The masterfully crafted granite breakfast bar kitchen presents a host of fine maple wood cabinetry. The microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher are innovatively designed with wood fronts, blending into the cabinets, creating a clean uniform look. The kitchen is handsomely completed with double SS wall ovens, a 5-burner gas stove, mosaic tile backsplash, under-cabinet lighting & casual dining w/butted glass views of the lanai. An impressive coral stone gas fireplace highlights the comfortable family room, accented with a built-in media center. The master retreat is a celebration of high-end appointments. Glass French doors offer private pool access, and two walk-in closets create plenty of storage. Accessorized by a large glass block shower & granite vanity, the tiled step-up master tub calls you to far-away places! The two extra bedrooms are underscored with beautiful bamboo flooring, offer built-in shelving, and are joined by a Jack ‘n Jill bath. The laundry room keeps things neat and tidy with stackable full-size washer and dryer, cabinets, and a folding counter.
Entertain with alfresco flair from the breezy screened lanai, granite poolside kitchen with bar seating, and open pavered patio! The sparkling saltwater pool displays Mediterranean finesse, featuring four water features, multi-level landscape planters, and a delightful sun-shelf with turtle inlays. A fully fenced backyard keeps the parties contained and private, and a pool bath offers your guests ultimate convenience.
The home thoughtfully provides an Armor hurricane screen for the lanai, along with hurricane shutters. There is a new water heater, and 300 amp service. The property also has a partially air-conditioned attic for stowing items that need to be stored in a climate-controlled environment.
