Situated blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, and accessible only from a single entry point by way of guarded bridge, Lansing Island is a private and secluded luxury gated waterfront community whose residents are considered to possess some of the most prestigious luxury waterfront addresses in the state of Florida. Sparkling waters surround the island, with the Banana River to the west and Grand Canal to the east. The natural vegetation and wildlife are spectacular to behold.
The luxury waterfront properties on Lansing Island are all just as spectacular. Island homes for sale range in price from $900,000 to $5,000,000 and each sits on at least three-quarters of an acre of land. Most Lansing Island homes have direct Banana River access or river access through the Grand Canal that separates Lansing Island from the main barrier islands of Indian Harbor Beach and Satellite Beach.
The pictured 2-story, 7,433 square foot, custom Bellagio II model says, “You have arrived!” It is a stunning home with 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 3 half baths, situated on a 0.73 acre deep-water, canal-front lot. “Not all homes are created equal. Perfected utilization, livability and flow make this home stand out among all others,” Greg Ellingson, broker and owner of Ellingson Properties said.
Pull into the circular, paved drive and take note of the 4-car garage, including one with a car lift, the well planned, lush landscaping, and the wall mounted fountain that greets you at the home’s entrance. The grand and glorious façade is a study in stateliness, beauty and old world charm. Unique architectural rooflines, turrets, corbels, radius windows, 2-story portico and Corinthian-topped columns suggest the opulence that awaits you on the inside.
As you proceed to cross the threshold, take note of the double custom wrought iron Cantera doors topped with a scrolled iron inserted eyebrow window. What a statement! Upon entering, it will be hard to miss the open ironwork windows flanking either side of the foyer. One window provides you the first glimpse of the hand forged, curved wrought iron railing that leads to the second floor. The other window provides your first look at the masterpiece of all masterpieces in the home office. This is no ordinary home office. Custom built cabinetry and an iron circular staircase leads to the office’s second story, where you’ll find more cabinetry and bookcases and even a spot to relax with a good book. Above the wood and iron double doors, you’ll find a beautiful iron transom window.
Enter the formal living room from the foyer and you will immediately be drawn to the floor-to-ceiling bowed window that provides a stunning panorama of the pool, spa, and deep-water canal. There are numerous exquisite details in this room that will show the thought and care taken in selecting the perfect design and finishes starting with the 2-story concrete cast fireplace surround and mantel, the beautifully detailed dentil molding that is wrapped around the room, concrete columns and archway that distinguish the living room from the foyer, solid wood staircase with iron banister and iron balcony overlooking the living room from the second floor. The 25 ft coffered and round tray ceilings are faux painted by a renowned local artist. The large travertine tiles with a solid wood grid provide an estate feel and continue from the living room through to the great room, kitchen and office.
The hub of the home is the spacious kitchen and great room with coffered ceilings and 13 inch stacked crown molding. Commercial quality appliances abound in the kitchen with a SubZero refrigerator/freezer, Miele double ovens, a Viking six burner gas stove with griddle and pot filler and a custom over range hood and fan. Espresso-stained solid wood, staggered cabinetry, breakfast bar and island are topped with a striking triple stacked granite. The adjacent great room and breakfast nook allow for more panoramic views with sliders to the patio from the breakfast area and 90° quad pocket sliders from the great room. A wall of more custom espresso cabinetry houses a curved flat screen television and contains the home’s audio-visual equipment behind closed doors. A hidden walk-in wine room with arched iron door provides an old world feel and quick access to the owner’s wine collection. The step down wet bar is conveniently located in close proximity to the living room, great room, dining room, kitchen and patio area.
This home was made for entertaining family, friends and neighbors. Not only will you and your guests have the feeling of “I’ve arrived,” but you’ll also never want to leave. b
