Property Description

OWNER FINANCING AVAILABLE! Featuring sweeping views of the Indian River, this Regal Villa is nestled in a gated community and rests on almost an acre of lush tropical flora. Florida living at its finest! A home that exudes relaxation and the joys of life can be found in this beautiful dwelling totaling over 5,600 ft.² under air including 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and an oversized 3 car garage. The main living area opens out onto a grand terrace, complete with all the outdoor amenities you could imagine, such as a stunning swimming pool, spa, and summer kitchen. Easily entertain your guests out on the terrace by grilling up a delicious meal on the barbecue and enjoying alfresco dining with river views abounding. Located in the gated community of River Ridge, and a tribute to classic design, this estate enjoys an awesome location as the lot stands tall on the mainland at approximately 38' above sea level at its highest point and the home rests at a mid point enjoying spectacular river views. The front entrance of this stylish property boasts a large semicircular driveway lined with brick walls and enhanced with lighted columns. The exquisite front door is flanked with stained glass side-lights creating a grand entry into the spacious and airy 28-foot foyer showcasing a barreled bead board wood ceiling which is mirrored by the gray and white marble floors. This area frames an impressive artisan hand-crafted curved staircase that extends up to the second-floor landing where a bridge walk way connects two spacious guest suites and loft area. Designed for quiet relaxation, each suite features an ensuite bath. In between the suites, access a two-level private terrace that extends out to appreciate the beauty of the river and is perfect for sunbathing.'||chr(10)||''||chr(10)||'The generous ground floor owner's suite is accented by an expansive bay window offering a beautiful river view.

A large laundry room w/laundry tub, storage and built-in features also make a perfect craft or hobby space. Adjacent to the laundry is access to the oversized three car garage totaling 874 ft.². Built to accommodate oversized vehicles, there is ample space between vehicles and is wide enough to walk between cars with car doors open! The rear driveway leads to the 3-car garage and was designed to be hidden from street view. The front and rear driveways were also designed with brick walls lining each driveway and are enhanced by lighted columns. Dishing up big panoramas of the river, the east facing dining room and connected covered porch with beadboard ceiling is a grand spot to gather and celebrate the golden rays of dawn climbing over the horizon. The nearby kitchen is truly the heart of the home and is open and airy making it perfect for entertaining. A large eat in breakfast nook, island with second prep sink, and custom cabinetry abound in this chef's dream. Soaring ceilings grace the formal living room and a coffered ceiling enhances the family gathering area complete with handcrafted masonry fireplace, bar with pass through to lanai pool bar, and of course, more river views!
