Stunning multi-level decks crescendo to a tranquil cove on Sykes Creek off the Indian River Lagoon. This resort-inspired backdrop is stupendous with colorful tropical foliage that surrounds a stone embellished pool emulating a natural spring cascading into a sparkling saltwater pool designed to look like a free-form pond. A spa on one side and a wading pool on the other pour water from above making a soothing sound in this tropical oasis. A pavered patio wraps around the pool and massive palm trees tower overhead, while the cabana-inspired trellis provides for privacy and seclusion for an afternoon nap with just a quick close of the billowy curtains. A boat dock nestles right up to the side of the seawall where a 4,500 lb boat lift is ready for water enthusiasts. A huge balcony runs the length of the house and provides cover below for entertaining. Alongside the family room and kitchen is a dining patio and Tiki Bar ready for your next luau. A spiral staircase winds up to the balcony giving easy access for guests to meander up and see the expansive views of the water and morning sunrise. Meticulous hedges and perfectly placed flower beds surround massive palms that grace the front yard which is blanketed by a velvet carpet of green grass. A spacious driveway covered with pavers stretches wide to accommodate the 3 car garage.
Shimmering waters and tropical landscape are the glorious panoramic delight from this 5 bedroom, 3 full + 2 half baths, 4,250 square feet of elegant living space in N. Merritt Island. Reminiscent of a charming Mediterranean villa with its architectural tapestry interweaving old world charm and top of the line conveniences, this home captures the delightful canal views in a sprawling plan perfect for a large family or a vacation retreat. Entering from a cul-de-sac onto the pavered driveway, the residence opens from a decadent octagonal grand foyer with arched openings and transom shelving above, all umbrellaed by a majestic iron chandelier in the center of an embellished trey ceiling that soars to the second story. Immediately the views from the 2 story windows pull you in and you sense the tropical splendor beyond. This grand living space is in the center of the home with a large dining room with coordinating trey ceiling with a glass door that opens to the pool deck.
The chef inspired kitchen boasts white cabinets with chic hardware, glass front inserts, a contrasting center island in charcoal with shelving for spices and cookbooks, a gas cooktop, stainless steel appliances, pantry, and prep sink all topped with gleaming granite counters and capped by stylish pendant lighting. The breakfast bar and nook are open to the huge family room that culminates in the most unique coquina fireplace that reaches to the ceiling. Additionally, there is space for an office, piano, or extra dining in the rear. Sliding glass doors open to the lanai and patio making entertaining a breeze. The laundry room and 2nd powder room are conveniently located between the living spaces.
On the other side of the home, etched glass doors reveal an exquisite study with windows looking out on the water. Nestled just past the entrance is a step down to iron scroll doors that secure a wine cellar and a conveniently placed powder room. The master bedroom is grand but serene with a triple trey ceiling, hardwood looking floors, and an adobe-style gas fireplace that anchors the room. A sitting room off the master bedroom makes an ideal spot for exercise equipment or just a private getaway to gaze outside or open the door to the patio and enjoy the breeze while reading. The master bathroom is equipped with coordinating etched glass French doors that open to an artfully designed wall of windows and mirrors that sprawl to the ceiling over the immense jacuzzi tub enclosed in stone like tile. The neutral tile continues to the colossal roman shower and the secluded water closet. On the flip side, the vanity circles the room and includes a table height seated vanity space, two sinks, beautiful cream cabinets including a nook for small tv above & a counter personal appliance cabinet, all adorned with granite countertops, brushed nickel hardware, and decorative mirrors. Just outside the master bedroom is a bar with small fridge and wine cooler covered in granite counter tops.
Wood looking floors with iron baluster handrail lead to the upstairs generous bonus room/landing that looks over the living room below. A wall of bookshelves and a door to the upstairs balcony make this a pleasant area for an office. A guest room with modern ensuite bath has sliding glass doors with incredible views of the cove and the tropical splendor below. Additionally, two good-sized bedrooms share an elegant bath. The guest bedroom to the rear also has sliding glass doors to the balcony. The 3 car garage is extra large and the pool equipment is stored in a self-contained closet helping to keep things organized. Although situated on a cove where storms have not been a problem in the past, the home does come equipped with electric storm shutters, 2 hot water heaters that run on propane and a whole house generator.
