' A spectacular estate of ''Old Florida'' stretching 1300+ ft. from Banana River to Indian River. 10.6 acres. One-of-a-kind riverfront property with over 400 ft on the Indian River. The entry leads through a canopy of majestic oaks and towering Australian pines for 600 ft before meandering through horse paddocks, mango trees, a pristine lawn, and a 2400 sf barn, and eventually leading to the custom residence that was COMPLETELY REBUILT IN 2002 and is just 20 feet from the water's edge! Open the living room sliders and listen to the peaceful sounds of the river. The residence features quality appointments throughout, and is designed to complement the natural landscape and waterfront location. Views are spectacular from nearly room in the house. See attached video.The GREAT ROOM enjoys magnificent views through the windows lining the western side, as does the spacious master suite, which includes a walk-in closet, bath with garden tub, raised vanities, and a west-facing shower that enjoys more river views from the corner windows. A riverfront deck runs the length of the house and a hot tub for our cool winter nights sits just outside the master bedroom. The kitchen features stainless appliances including a Subzero refrigerator, granite countertops with abundant workspace and breakfast bar, and overlooks a wood beamed eat-in area.
