A damaged oceanfront motel in the Melbourne area will be offered at auction this month.

Hurricane Irma last year ripped the roof off the Beach House Motel and reduced the Indialantic property to a tear-down candidate.

The never-reopened motel is located at 405 North Miramar Avenue in Indialantic, a town on the barrier island just east of Melbourne.

Jacobson Auction & Realty Co. will conduct the auction starting on Oct. 20 at 10 a.m.

The owner, Vinu Patel, president and chief executive officer of Anuva Manufacturing Services, bought the Beach House Motel for $430,000 in 2006.

According to Patel, an architectural feasibility study shows the site of his Melbourne-area motel would be suitable for the construction of 10 to 13 three-story townhouses with ground-floor garages.

Hurricane Irma in September 2017 spawned a tornado that hit Indialantic, one of nine confirmed tornadoes that Irma spun off in Brevard, Lake and Volusia counties. [Florida Today] – Mike Seemuth
