John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Florida

Dragon Point, Merritt Island, Florida

Dragon Point, Merritt Island, Florida was finally sold for $800,000 and the new owners plan to rebuild. The mansion deteriorated over the years and Annie, the iconic 20 ton dragon statue sculpted in 1971 by Miami “warlock” artist Lewis VanDercar, fell apart during a 2002 storm. Then the land was tied up in court for years because of ownership disputes and code enforcement violations.  The original mansion was 5700 sq. ft. with 600' of waterfront. "Annie" had a bar/lounge inside and every tourist (and even locals) took thousands of photos.

 In 1982, VanDercar upgraded Annie by sculpting four dragon hatchlings alongside the concrete monster. Joy, Sunshine, Charity and Freedom. Expanding on that legend, Rojak was a fifth hatchling that Annie kept hidden underwater. We will have to see how the property transforms in the coming months ahead.
