Historic Cocoa Beach with its miles and miles of gorgeous coastline is the quintessential beach town. An hour drive east from Orlando, Cocoa Beach offers endless ways to enjoy your leisure time. Stunning beaches, sparkling waters, competitive surfing, just minutes to Port Canaveral, the Banana River, and the Indian River/Intracoastal Waterway, residents have access to some of the best waterways, fishing and fresh local dining in Florida.
This one-of-a-kind residence was designed by renowned architect Phil Kean and built by Elan Homes. With over 50 feet of direct access to the Banana River, this home has a private boat dock that comes equipped with a 10,000 lb boat lift.
The first floor was erected with solid poured concrete to ensure a sturdy foundation. Impact, energy efficient windows and a TPO (thermoplastic olefin) roof keeps the home cool and helps reduce energy costs.
The powder coated railings and spiral staircase are strong against the elements and an in-wall pest control system provides peace of mind that you have a defense against any unwelcome guests of the insect variety.
The home was built with a structured wiring Control4 Home Automation system. This state-of-the-art technology provides a central audiovisual control panel/room, built in whole home Wifi, pre-wired speaker locations in the kitchen, dining, living room, lounge, master bedroom, patio, and deck. It also includes pre-wired security camera locations, pre-wired automated blind locations on all sliding doors and a Leviton Omni Home Security System.
The luxury kitchen was designed with functionality in mind and includes modern conveniences you’d expect in luxury estates. Dual islands are topped with Cambria quartz with one containing the main sink while the second island serves as a breakfast bar and includes a smaller prep sink. The appliances, all manufactured by Bosch, include a gas cooktop, oven, warming drawer, and dishwasher.
This residence is comprised of 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, with 3 bedrooms and a full bath on the first floor and the master suite on the second floor as well as a half bath that services the main living areas.
A customized residential elevator provides access to the upper floor when using the stairs is not an option. The second floor is laid out in a great room style with living room, dining room and kitchen all open to allow easy flow between spaces.
In the living area, a built-in wet bar with a SubZero wine refrigerator make for a convenient space for storing and displaying your favorite spirits. Entertaining your guests in the open floorplan is a breeze and the stunning views of the river envelop you from every angle.
The master bedroom features a large walk-through closet that includes a wood organization system. The second-floor laundry room is adjacent to the master closet and a pass thru from the closet allows you to easily drop your laundry so you can access it from the laundry room closet when it’s time to wash.
Mirroring the sparkling water of the Banana River is the spectacular pool off the back of the home. The pool is incorporated with the back patio and includes a lounge shelf, hot tub, fountain, and bubbler. An outdoor shower provides a spot to rinse off sandy toes and salty hair.
