Energy Efficiency, Waterfront Views and Private Slips Can All Be Yours in This Amazing Luxury Community
Incredible scenery, abundant wildlife, cool summer breezes and shimmering water—it’s a boater’s paradise living along the Banana River.
Given the chance, who wouldn’t want to live on a piece of beautiful waterfront property? Waking up to idyllic river views and stepping outside your door within strolling distance of your boat is a popular dream here in Florida—especially along the coast. While it may seem as if that dream is all sewn up by homeowners who got there first, Marker 24, a new riverfront marina community of luxury homes and private slips in Merritt Island, is opening that dream back up.
Beginning with 24 available home lots, 12 of them being waterfront marina properties and four being direct riverfront, Marker 24 is a gorgeous, maintenance-free, deed-restricted community with established architectural standards featuring one boat slip available for purchase or lease for each homeowner (optional).
The development features a private drawbridge, a members-only riverfront clubhouse, several community piers and community riverfront-path access, a Marina ship store, dock master, concierge and more.
The two-story clubhouse contains a tackle shop, riverfront deck, bathroom and showers on the first floor, and the second story is devoted to the members-only clubhouse providing more waterfront views for the 24 fortunate homeowners, all within a super fun and relaxed atmosphere.
The full-service marina provides deep-water access for all 72 slips; a fuel dock riverside and ship repair yard with travel lift; a concrete pier providing water, electric and pump-out service on site; plus 24-hour lighting and camera-viewing access surrounded by lush, tropical community landscaping.
And while the visual aesthetics and loads of on-site conveniences are enough to make you want to live there all by themselves, it’s the energy-efficient one- and two-story luxury homes that are the real standouts at Marker 24. There are six different Anglo Caribbean models to choose from offering four- and five-bedroom floor plans complete with either two- or three-car garages.
Standard features include standing-seam aluminum metal roofs, impact doors and windows, solid wood cabinets, your choice of granite or quartz countertops, 10-foot ceilings with elegant tongue and groove features and recessed 4-inch can LED lighting throughout, crown molding, stainless steel appliance package with washer/dryer, a wine cooler, Kohler fixtures, 16 SEER AC unit with digital thermostat, limestone driveways, stucco and Hardie board planking exteriors with decorative outlookers, Zoysia grass/landscaping and Bahamian decorative shutters.
And that’s just for starters. There are oodles of lux upgrades, such as mahogany doors for front entrance options, pools, spas, wine room system/shelving and full closet systems, all of which can fully personalize your space just the way you like it.
If you’re energy-conscious, you’ll appreciate the insulated, impact-resistant, low-E vinyl windows; the ceiling insulation; Energy Star-rated appliances; 50-gallon quick-recovery hot water heater; and water-conserving toilets all with a vapor barrier under the entire home sitting atop a termite-treated pre-slab. Who says luxury and energy efficiency can’t meet?
The developer for Marker 24 is Yane Zana from Coastmark Construction Company. His partner, Peter Black, is from Blue Bell Landscaping. Together, the two have formed Marker 24 Builders, LLC, with a desire to bring a private, quality boating community to Merritt Island. So far, several of the home lots have already sold, but there are still choice lots remaining for you to create your own waterfront sanctuary.
