Intimately close to nature, this newly renovated one-story townhouse is a stone's throw away from shops, marinas, restaurants, and the entrance to New Smyrna Beach. Perched on an elbow of the Indian River, this one-story spacious townhouse boasts cathedral ceilings and a huge private patio. From the living room and guest bedroom, you can see the river as it flows 100 feet away under a neighbor’s spreading oak tree. Just 3 doors down, you’ll find a gazebo, fishing dock, and fire pit area for sitting and looking out across the estuary to the lush green mangroves. These provide a rich environment for visiting dolphins, manatees, and sea turtles you’re likely to see. And with a mix of palm trees, sprawling southern oaks and hedges of blossoming oleanders, you’ll feel like you're living in the old Florida you've read about. It’s very peaceful here and also centrally located smack dab between historic Canal Street’s galleries, shops, and restaurants and Flagler Ave with its fun-loving beach shops, nightlife, and drive-on beach. You can take a leisurely 10-minute walk to Outriggers and sit outside by the water as you enjoy one of their tropical specialties. Or walk 15 minutes in the opposite direction to the historic district and Canal Street with its shops, restaurants, and craft brewery. The quaint town of New Smyrna Beach offers year round activities including a monthly Wine Walk, Saturday Farmer’s Market, and boat parades, which all take place close by.
The newly renovated 2BR/2Bath townhouse is a spacious 1,175 square feet with a mid-century modern vibe. A slender teak console in the living room sports a 50” flat-screen TV (cable and internet are provided). There’s plenty of room to relax with loved ones or friends in the living room with its full-size couch, rocker/recliner and versatile modern futon. An architect’s touch are evident in the propeller coffee table, chrome arched lamp, and choice of wall art. The fenced patio provides a private place to bask in the sun, comfortable seating for 6, a large table with sunbrella, and loads of room to spare. The dining room is large and offers an expandable teak table with seating for 6 more people. There have been many upgrades provided in the renovation, from stainless steel kitchen appliances, vinyl wood flooring throughout, and white quartz countertops with glass tile backsplash. Newly purchased mattresses have been carefully chosen-a king for the master bedroom and a queen for the 2nd bedroom. Each bedroom provides ample storage with large dressers and closets in each bedroom. The master bedroom has a sliding glass door leading to the patio and an ensuite bathroom with combination tub/shower. The second bedroom has a water view and adjoining bathroom with combination tub/shower and linen closet. There’s also a dedicated laundry room within the townhouse with brand new full size washer and dryer.
The kitchen cabinets are fully stocked with dishes, pots, and pans, small appliances, like toaster oven and blender, and utensils-everything needed to cook and serve 6 people.
There’s a perfect balance here between maintaining one’s privacy and having access to glorious Florida sunlight thanks to transom windows in the living room and a fenced in patio accessed through 3 sliding glass doors. Each slider provides easy access to the patio from the kitchen, dining room, or master bedroom, making the patio the perfect spot to sit in the sun with a morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Sun worshipers will appreciate that the fenced patio allows privacy without blocking the vital rays of the sun. Double walls between townhouses means you’re not likely to hear your neighbors next door and they won’t hear you. There’s a designated parking spot located right in front of door and lots of guest parking.
This is a relaxed community on the Indian River, and for now it’s natural shoreline sports only palm trees and the occasional egret.
