Anyone who has ever driven through Merritt Island, Florida knows that you can’t go far without encountering a body of water. Brevard County is fortunate to have a seemingly endless network of rivers, lakes and canals that provide some pretty spectacular waterfront locations. One of the newest and most luxurious condo communities in this coastal town is the elite gated residences of Island Pointe, a hard-to-miss set of sunny yellow buildings that stretch out into the Indian River. Built in 2006 by prestigious developer Homes by Towne, this riverfront complex is widely known for its luxurious floor plans and incredible views. Designed to provide every resident with the ultimate waterfront experience, every single condo in this community features a private balcony on the Indian River and a front row seat for some of the most breathtaking sunsets you will ever witness. Manatees and dolphins are spotted almost daily in the waters along the community boardwalk.
In addition to the amenities provided by Mother Nature, there are many other benefits to living in Island Pointe. The community features two heated pools with spas, an exercise room, sauna, recreation center with meeting/party room and community kitchen, basketball and tennis courts. There are also plenty of entertainment options outside the gates, with nearby marinas for the boating enthusiast, kayaking and canoeing spots for the nature lover, and several shopping and dining hot spots. Just across the bridge from Island Pointe is the picturesque area of Cocoa Village, known for its quaint storefronts, fine dining, shows at the Cocoa Village Playhouse, concerts at the amphitheater in Riverfront Park, and one heck of a fireworks display every Fourth of July!
Only a few minutes to Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral, Merritt Island also offers residents the convenience of living close to the beach, as well as a short 30 minute drive to the ultimate family vacation destination of Orlando. Viera is another popular destination for Brevard County residents, with lots of choices for shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Golfers can pick from several courses in and around Merritt Island, and baseball fans can catch a game at the Space Coast Stadium.
The floor plans in Island Pointe start at 1,894 square feet, all the way up to the largest penthouse at 3655 square feet of sheer luxury. The corner units have wrap-around balconies that allow for amazing panoramic river views. All units are equipped with storm protection shutters and private garages under the buildings. Many of the condos feature extensive upgrades and high-end interior design elements, but even the standard features are impressive: tray ceilings, Whirlpool tub, ceramic tile, dual vanities, walk-in closets, tiled showers, solid surface countertops, under-cabinet lighting and separate laundry rooms.
