1459192048INDIALANTIC, FL - After just two days on the market, the Carpenter /  Kessel Homeselling Team sold 243 Lansing Island Drive in Indian Harbour Beach for $2,630,000. This represents the highest riverfront sale since 2012.

The Seller owned this spectacular property for almost 4 years and this was a second residence for them. Not getting the use out of it they would like, they decided to put the property on the market. It took the Carpenter / Kessel team about 2 weeks to get all the marketing in place to bring it to market, including twilight photography, drone video / photos, HGTV style video for the subdivision, 3D virtual tours and professional writing. Once the property came on the market, a neighbor came by to take a look and it happened to be a perfect fit. This property went under contract within just 4 days of coming on the market. After the property was under contract, interest continued as well as showings to other buyers for back-up offers. With inspections complete, the Buyer and Seller ended up closing on the property about a week earlier than originally contracted. The Carpenter / Kessel team congratulates the Buyer on the purchase, this is truly one of highest quality homes the team has seen in the county.


An outstanding showcase of unique architectural design, prestigious craftsmanship and fine finishes hallmark one of the most significant waterfront residences in Brevard County.  On the sprawling 1.02 acre grounds, two entries give way to the sweeping motor court that leads to this astute residence. Situated  on a prized span of the Banana River and its glistening cool waters  in the secluded gated waterfront island community of Lansing Island, this extraordinary  riverfront estate was designed by Slocum Platts Architects with interior design by Marc Michaels, both of Winter Park, Florida. Its elegant Mediterranean design offers 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths, an exercise room, two offices, a game room, and media room in just under 10,000 sq. ft., under air and two separate two-car garages, both connecting to the home and the courtyard, with covered loggias. Relish in the waterfront lifestyle of this estate directly fronting the Banana River, complete with dockage and a 6,000 lb boat lift. A lavish compound combining the expertise of construction and creative vision with romantic lawns and landscaping and a fabulous outdoor living space that provides a fluid indoor and outdoor flow for the perfect mise-en-scène for casual gatherings or a memorable evening’s entertainment.
