This riverfront estate was expressly created to enrapture the senses and indulge every desire. Sprawling on close to 1.5-acres in an almost impossibly beautiful setting, this gated home is positioned just ½ mile north of the Pineda Causeway and 8 miles south of 520. An impressive private gate opens to a meandering pavered driveway that circles the front and is lush with oak trees, palms, flowering bushes, mango & Meyer lemon trees, and lush green lawn. The backyard feels more like a resort than a private residence with panoramic views of the Indian River and various patios to lounge or entertain. One of the few homes with a sandy beach on the river, this spot is ideal for building a sandcastle, launching a kayak, or just lying in the sun on a hot summer’s day.

Entertaining is a breeze with an outdoor patio living & dining area with a vaulted tongue & groove wood ceiling and multiple fans. This room also features a wood burning stack stone fireplace adorned with a one of a kind pecky cypress mantle, a summer kitchen with a matching stack stone encased Forno Bravo pizza oven, marine grade cabinetry topped by a beautiful coordinating granite, and a Blanco stone sink. The grill area is connected to the propane line and features a commercial stainless vent hood. Close the electronic shutters and enjoy the heat radiating off the fireplace on winter nights.

In the center of this glorious residence is a secluded pool & spa courtyard surrounded with a pavered deck and backdropped by a cabana. For convenience there are also two outside showers. A tanning ledge in the pool allows for taking in the rays while still ensconced in the crisp blue water and the spa waterfalls into the pool. Palm trees and intricate landscaping display throughout the courtyard for a high-end resort and spa like atmosphere and privacy. There are speakers in the cabana and pool area that connect to the house music system. Control all the landscape & exterior lighting, and the music system from the convenience of a mobile app. This home also features a whole house water filtration system and a denatured water system.
