The Folly was built only a short period after Cocoa Beach was established and two years after A1A was cleared into a one lane dirt road. Two years later in 1939, the New Banana Air Station, now known as Patrick Air Force Base was opened. Cocoa Beach was a newly established town with only 40 residents and on the edge of entering into the golden age of technology and space exploration. Today’s residents proudly proclaim Cocoa Beach the quintessential beach town. From the house you can easily walk to restaurants such as Coconuts either by taking the beach route or by walking through the town. With an hour’s drive east from Orlando, Cocoa Beach offers endless ways to enjoy your leisure time. Stunning beaches, sparkling waters, competitive surfing, just minutes to Port Canaveral, the Banana River and the Indian River / Intracoastal Waterway, residents have access to some of the best waterways, fishing and fresh local dining in Florida. Cocoa Beach has grown into a relaxed but bustling town that serves as the center of space related technologies, industry and culture for the area.
