This Florida stilt bungalow sits over a spring-fed lake, and comes with a private island

A unique Florida bungalow that sits quite literally above a spring-fed lake is back on the market.

Custom-built in 1979, this isolated stilt house is located at 4520 Deerwood Trail, just north or Melbourne, and comes with private island surrounded by a spring-fed fresh water lake.

The three-bedroom,  four bathroom house was made with cypress and cedar, and had a new tin roof installed in 2016. It also features a steam shower, granite counter tops, a new A/C and a massive deck and boardwalk for observing wildlife.

The home most recently sold in 2020 for $380,000, and is currently asking $750,000. The listing agent is Joseph Doher of HHS Results Realty.
