IF YOU EVER WANTED TO SEE REALLY GREAT AWESOME SPECTACULAR CHRISTMAS LIGHT DECORATIONS .....THIS...IS THE PLACE TO SEE!

Video of a past Christmas......https://youtu.be/8NdxBg5SG6o

After Hurricane Irma damaged much of the vegetation in front of their 50,000-square-foot mansion in Jensen Beach, Robert and Elsa Eustace decided in 2017 not to decorate their property with twinkling lights, as they had for almost a decade.

But the Treasure Coast was spared tropical activity this year, so at 5:30 p.m. Friday, the home at 4545 N.E. Ocean Blvd. will light up the night sky for the first time in two years.

On Wednesday, Hector Garza, who's been working for the Eustaces and taking care of their homes and properties for more than 30 years, said he and his team started stringing lights Oct. 15.

"The community loves it," he said. "People are constantly asking us if we are going to have Christmas lights this year. Everyone's looking forward to it."

Drivers should be cautious as they pass the mansion. Cars might be parked on the grass along both sides of the road. Watch for pedestrians crossing Ocean Drive.

THE HOUSE IS LOCATED AT 4545 N.E. Ocean Boulevard in Jensen Beach.
Directions: Cross the Intracoastal Bridge in Jensen Beach and continue to the traffic circle. Turn left and you will shortly see the home on the RIGHT. I doubt you can miss it!

The lights are on from 530PM to Midnight
