Now is your chance to own this one-of-a-kind, resort-style ocean front dream home set on a very large and lovingly landscaped Cocoa Beach double lot! This immaculate residence is a splendid mix of form, function and sublime beauty, with impressive panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. It was 34 years ago when the current owners took possession of what was a very different property in this location. The house was already here, with its soaring cathedral ceilings, but it was rough. In truth, it was a one-floor bachelor pad and a fabulous beachfront foothold. In the time since then, so much has changed. Now it's two full floors with a 3rd floor loft, with two additional bedrooms and an extra garage. They reimagined all the outdoor space, including the pool area, all the pavers, and even thesea grapes alongside the beach access. Raising two daughters within these walls, hosting a wedding for one on these grounds, and gala event after gala event  anniversaries, sleepovers, prom parties, dinner parties, fundraisers, clowns, magicians, whole-family Thanksgivings  sure does fill the scrapbook with memories. Life is full of adventures, and for the seller the adventures await elsewhere, so now it's time to make some memories of your own in this beachfront oasis. Imagine carousing with your friends and family round the beachfront fireplace, watching the kids clambering about the treehouse, chasing down the kite surfers across the beach. Take in a flick with the family in the dedicated theater room. Or with the endless ocean your front yard, watch the stars perform their ancient drama in the open air. The hot tub, the pool, the steam shower, the tree house, the "Beach House", the game room, the theater room, the loft  there are just so many spaces here for you to enjoy. You are certain not to be disappointed. As with the current owner, you are going to appreciate the great privacy this property affords you. Living right on the beach, you'll find the breeze is always blowing and the bugs are off on the river somewhere. This amazing property has the look and feel of a resort, with so many special places to relax in the briny sea breeze that is always available. Natural light abounds year-round, perfect for anyone with artistic or design proclivities. And the space is big  did we mention 7000 sq ft indoors and .58 acres? Imagine the events and family gatherings you could host in this fine location. The current owner has regularly welcomed parties of 40 to 50 for holidays, but the property can easily accommodate twice that number and, with a little forethought, not even parking will be a problem. 281 S Atlantic Ave. in Cocoa Beach occupies the whole north corner of its beach block, and that beach block offers public parking which you can claim as your own for special occasions, with advanced notice and a small fee to the city. Maybe even hire an attendant and forget about it. This makes it incredibly convenient to host whatever events your heart desires. The location is sure to impress, not just the double lot on the beach, but also the close proximity to everything Cocoa Beach has to offer. You are a stone's throw away from all the great restaurants here in town  the seller recommends The Fat Snook, Flavour Kitchen and the Greenroom  not to mention that you are a direct, straight shot west to Orlando (1 hr), and Cape Canaveral is so close, you can actually see it from your private beach access. All the other attractions and natural beauty that make living in Brevard great are all within easy reach as well. But honestly, if you buy this property, you may never want to leave! Please schedule your private viewing today. We'll have you surfing in your front yard by the summer!
