Dragon Point is a piece of Brevard County history. A beautiful, unique lot with over 600 feet of waterfront on .86 acres with deep water access. This trophy property is uniquely positioned on a point of land where the Intracoastal Waterway and the Banana River meet. Located on Merritt Island’s southern-most tip, the iconic Dragon Point property sits at the convergence of the Banana and Indian River lagoons, offering majestical views of both sunrise and sunset, along with a stunning view of the Eau Gallie Causeway to the west and the popular Eau Gallie Yacht Club to the east. The property offers a rare, wondrous 180 degree vantage point like no other on Merritt Island.

Create a chef’s kitchen which flows into the open family/breakfast room leading to the outdoor entertainment spaces. Having as many rooms possible opening to a waterfront terrace with east to west views. The possibilities are endless and we have builders ready to make your vision become a reality.
History of Dragon Point:
In 1971, sculptor Louis VanDercar built Annie, a 65 ft. long concrete dragon that stood watch over the Indian & Banana River lagoon on the southernmost tip of Merritt Island, an area eventually and aptly named “Dragon Point.” Annie served as a longtime Space Coast landmark for both locals and boaters, known as far away as New England as a meeting spot along the famous Intercoastal Waterway and great place to catch redfish. Annie stood watch on Dragon Point for over three decades until August 2002. The famous dragon, weathered by many years of erosion, salt spray, and hurricanes, collapsed into the river lagoon. Now 12 years later in 2014, only remnants of her shell remain.
After years of the property ownership being in limbo, a Brevard county judge has ruled that the current owner has clear title. Zoning variances are also in place for redevelopment. In mid-March, the Brevard County Board of Adjustment unanimously granted five zoning variances that will let Dragon Point's future landowner build a new mansion within the general footprint of the decrepit 5,707-square-foot home.
