Indian Harbour Beach house description

This spacious ranch house was built by a NASA engineer in the late 60's and designed for guests and entertainment. It has been refurbished including new windows, new appliances, a new and unique bathroom and many other features. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and the local police station is located a block at the end of our street. Starbucks, groceries, restaurants, and clothing, etc. are just blocks away. The beach, just three blocks away, offers rest rooms, walkways to the beach, water spigots to wash the sand off your feet, grills, picnic tables etc. We supply beach chairs, toys, towels, and two bikes to get to beach and back. The river is just three blocks the other way, offering sailing, kayaking to small islands, and manatee/bird watching You may not even need a car as we just use electric bikes to get around. A stroller is also available for families.
This is the ideal spot for families who want to relax in a safe, quiet, comfortable neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle. Everything is close, just an hour from Disney, 30 minutes from the Cape, and 15 minutes from Brevard Zoo. Great restaurants, sunrises and sunsets, churches, shopping, and surf shops. We consider this area to be as close to paradise as it gets if you're not a partier. That said, there is also great nightlife nearby...check out Lou's Blues or Cocoa Beach (minutes up A1A. If you want to relax.....this is your spot.

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          Why the Owner Chose Indian Harbour Beach:
                          My mother and father in law were in the service at Patrick AFB in the 60's and enjoyed this area. I inherited this property from a friend of the engineer who built the home. We rode out the last hurricane to hit this area and stayed high and dry even though Melbourne and surrounding areas had water problems. I grew up in Naples and The Keys, this area is less commercial, quieter, more convenient, more laidback, friendlier, less buggy, and has great surf.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We really enjoy the variety of things this area has to offer - especially the beach. We can go to the causeway and watch shuttle launches from Cape Canaveral; tour the wildlife refuge at Cape Canaveral; shop downtown Melbourne or in the many malls in this area; go surf fishing etc. My morning ritual is to ride my bike to Starbucks and take my coffee to the beach and watch the sunrise. Here you will find something for most everyone. Internationals tend to ove our area because it has a more "local" feel. No big city rush or rudeness. Everything is may find you don't need to leave the island for anything.
