INDIALANTIC, FL – Dale Sorensen Real Estate (DSRE) has announced that Lauren Merrell has been named the exclusive listing agent for one of Brevard County’s most significant homes. The Historic Sebring House, located at 709 Rockledge Drive in Rockledge, is listed for $1.9 million.
Merrell, an award-winning, Top-Producing agent, is honored to receive the listing. “This is a beautiful, historic home in the lovely Rockledge community,” said Merrell. “It’s located directly on the Intra-Coastal waterway and has been painstakingly renovated to ensure the preservation of the history of the home. I’m honored and excited to list this home and to be able to show it to prospective home-buyers who truly appreciate its history and details.”
The home was originally built for George Sebring in 1901, with additions starting in 1905 and renovations finishing in 2018. Featuring both Victorian and vernacular elements, it was originally listed in the National Register of Historic Homes in 1992, receiving subsequent awards and recognition following the recent renovations.
The property features multiple buildings, including a main house with four bedrooms, including two master suites, an additional office, and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The kitchen features custom inset cabinetry, Thermador appliances and Viviano Marmo Grey and White Flower Marble backsplash. Lavishly finished is an oversized 12-person theater, with stadium style seating and a 100” flat screen TV. Original hardwood floors run throughout the majority of the home. Effort was taken to utilize original doors, windows and hardware, wherever possible.
The detached two-car garage includes an apartment with a kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom. An additional two car garage in the rear of the property brings total garage parking to four. The property also includes a rare traditional boathouse with lift, the last remaining fully working in the area. It is approximately 21 x 49 ft. with a 10 x 40 ft. observation deck and a coquina rock breakwater. To the rear of the main home is a separate structure. Originally used as the kitchen, it is currently set up as a secondary laundry room with additional room for storage.
A tree that is on the front of the property is the original Native American Trail Head tree for Rockledge Drive and has been featured in multiple articles and photos.
