1425927396INDIALANTIC, FL - The DeWayne Carpenter / Kirk Kessel Homeselling Team at Dale Sorensen Real Estate sets another record, this time, for the highest priced Grand Canal front sale since March of 2008. Impressively, over the last 12 months the Carpenter/Kessel team has sold 62.5% of all Lansing Island homes, including 216 Lansing Island Drive.

Modern Neo-Craftsman style architecture perfectly complements this Grand Canal deep water masterpiece, built in 2002 by Militano Construction. Introduced by a brick pavered circular motor court, the residence is set off by pecky cypress-ceiling loggias with Fortune stone finishes. Providing a summer kitchen and cabana bath, the waterfront loggia leads down to the sparkling pool and spa. Boat dockage serves the 110+/- foot shoreline of this .86 acre Grand Canal lot with quick access to the Intracoastal. Equally as stunning as the setting, the sophisticated living environment achieves the perfect balance of richness and understated refinement. Each aspect is brilliantly thought out, from the versatile floor-plan to the fine details and from the principal living/entertaining rooms to the more utilitarian spaces. Abundant doors and sliders promote an open flow to extensive outdoor living spaces creating a wonderful blend of shaded and sun-splashed settings around the pool and outdoor living spaces.


Custom millwork, and other magnificent details adorn this six-bedroom, six-bath residence totaling 7,124+/- square feet with over 1,600 square feet of verandas and a three-car garage featuring 1,000 square feet of space, a study, gym and opulent recreation room. There are wood floors and tile flow through the main living areas and a fireplace and custom built-ins anchor the elegant family room leading to the outdoor spaces. Upstairs, a full-length waterfront balcony opens off to the gym and bedrooms and the versatile floor plan features the master, study and one guest room downstairs. The second floor contains four bedrooms, the gym and recreation room. All of the bedrooms are generously sized and feature sitting areas.

Lansing Island

Located in Indian Harbour Beach, which according to is the number three place to live in Florida. Situated only blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, Lansing Island is a homeowner’s dream community.  Accessible only from a single entry point by way of guarded bridge, Lansing Island is a private and secluded luxury gated waterfront community. The residents of Lansing Island are considered to possess some of the most prestigious luxury waterfront addresses in the state of Florida. Sparkling waters surround the island, with the Banana River on the west and Grand Canal on the east side, the natural lush vegetation and wildlife that abounds is spectacular to behold.

The luxury waterfront properties on Lansing Island are all just as spectacular in themselves, each one a gem in its own right. Lansing Island homes for sale range in price from $800,000 to $5,000,000 and each of them sits on at least .75 acres of land. Most Lansing Island homes have direct Banana River access or river access through the Grand Canal that separates Lansing Island from the main barrier island part of Indian Harbor Beach and Satellite Beach FL.

If you own a luxury home, there is no other agent or team that is more knowledgeable with a better track record than Carpenter / Kessel. It doesn’t cost more to work with the best so why risk the investment?
