Grandeur, Serenity, Exclusivity are the feelings that come to mind as you drive through the private hand forged wrought iron gates of ''Meander'', the magnificent 9.2 acre estate nestled between the Banana River and the Intracoastal Waterway on the southern tip of Merritt Island, Florida. If one were to cross a centuries old European villa with the tropical paradise of an island in central Florida's Atlantic coast the outstanding results would be 6585 South Tropical Trail. Florida luxury living at its finest awaits you as you wind your way through the lush tropical grounds. Stop and pick any one of a variety of fruits from carambola to mangos, tangerines, avocados, lychees, and figs on one of the many specimens that adorn the property.
As you round your way past the half-acre natural spring fed pond you are immediately met with the grandeur of this 17,000 square foot Mediterranean villa. Built in the Palm Beach style of Addison Mizner, this 5 bedroom, 8.5 bath property has absolutely every amenity that one could hope for. From the expansive outdoor living areas, to the guest house/casita with its own morning kitchen, putting green with sand trap, 10-person theater with stadium seating and state of the art electronics, and full scale old fashioned 50's themed soda parlour and game room! Watch the sunset on one of your many private balconies or on the 36' dock and covered 16,000-pound boat lift.
For the automobile enthusiast, this amazing property is a dream come true. There are a total of 12 Air Conditioned spaces with 3000 Square Feet of private garage space for your collectable fleet or your oversized Touring Coach. Invite your friends with Touring Coaches as this property can accommodate additional coaches and hookup requirements.
From the moment you enter the hand forged Cantera front doors, the craftsmanship of this stunning property is apparent. With the Interior design done by an award winning Winter Park firm, every detail from the exposed beam coffered ceilings, inlaid marble floor accents, imported Italian decorative tile, custom faux painting and ceiling detail and designer wall coverings are simply exquisite. The vast kitchen and great room opens up to the outdoor loggia with the disappearing impact glass sliders, gliding smoothly into the wall to truly bring the outdoors in and enjoy Florida living at its finest. The Chef's kitchen is unparalleled with an enormous center island, double Sub Zero refrigerator/freezers, Thermidor 8 burner gas range, Fisher Paykel dishwasher drawers, Miele espresso center, and much more!
This one of a kind estate on Florida's Gold Coast is reminiscent of old world craftsmanship and attention to detail from another era. Come visit "Meander" and see for yourself.
