                  Car: Recommended

                  Sebastian is known for it's great fishing opportunities, from deep sea to pier or coastal.

                  Sebastian is also world knowned for it's sky diving center. In fact, 'The Lagoon House' is a favored area to fly over because of it's incomparable beauty.

                  Maybe a day deep sea fishing is what you envision yourself doing. A slow cruise down our Sebastian river will give you a good idea just how special 'The Lagoon House' is and how smart you are for having chosen it.

                  Your view from the downstairs screened porch will bring out your inner child. The wonderment of the raising sun and what the new day will bring, to the bliss and peace of our sunset.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: Hello! My name is Mrs. Malloy and I am a retired High School Language teacher. On Mother's Day of 1993, my husband and I answered Mrs. Patteson's newspaper ad. What we saw was an impenetrable jungle on the Sebastian River. Imagine our surprise, for as we were clearing the property, we discovered a lagoon with access to the Sebastian River. Local rumors have it that the Spaniards looking for fresh water used this lagoon as a marker. This was when the Sebastian River in it's pristine era was deep enough for Spanish armadas to pass thru. My son Greg is convinced that Spanish treasures are buried in this property. Please no digging! Don't humor him.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sebastian:
                  When I lived in 'The Lagoon House' my private abode was upstairs. With it's exterior staircase, once upstairs you feel as if you are in another world. A world filled with exquisite natural beauty. My bedroom window, livingroom sliding glass door and kitchen window all overlook the spectacular landscape of the lagoon with it's jumping fishes, the river and the boats, the oaks, the bamboos, the palms... so much to see and feel. Yet after having lived downstairs.....so much easier on my legs.....I tend to prefer it. It's just the right size. No extra space to lose yourself or things. I made it a habit to leave my keys, phone and glasses right by the kitchen doors. You are downstairs and will hear foot steps upstairs.....hopefully like trains passing you will get used to it. If you remember the movie....'Men in Black', when Dan Akroid was asked how often the trains passed, he answered ' so often that you don't even notice it.' The natural beauty of flora and fauna from the lagoon and the Sebastian River will make your stay memorable.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Yes...you are at the deep end of the road. The last house....squeezed between a creek, the river with it's private lagoon, the surrounding oak trees and greenery. You will be enveloped, caressed and lulled by mother nature. Be on the look out for manatees. We have sired generations in the lagoon. Offspring return to continue the cycle of life.
