Bike, jog or walk to Riomar Country Club for golf, Quail Valley for tennis, Ocean Drive for fine dining or to one of many gorgeous beaches. This is a true boater's paradise with a private deep-water dock, lift and Intracoastal access. Majestic open waters stage the backdrop for this Riomar Bay riverfront paradise fashioned as a picture-perfect showplace in a recent two-year renovation and expansion designed and crafted by the talented team of Vero Beach architect Hall Lambert and luxury builder Foglia Custom Homes. The exquisite living spaces inside and outdoors take advantage of the long-range views from the cul-de-sac isle site looking out on the Indian River to the 17th Street Bridge and mainland coastline in the distance. With a fresh clean look at once classic and modern, the five-bedroom residence is filled with special features expressly designed for comfortable living and entertaining whether on a grand or intimate scale.
Stepping inside from the impressive entrance court, the open floor-plan segues from the living and dining rooms into the amply proportioned family room/kitchen wrapped with glass walls that bring in the riverfront view and spill out to the terrace. Fireplaces serve as inviting focal points inside and out on the fabulous lanai by the infinity pool, where the glowing fire bowls and trickling water features add elemental effects to this oasis of serenity, the perfect place to relax and experience the gorgeous river sunset. A chef's dream, the triple-island kitchen easily serves sizeable groups of family and guests, with the added assets of the lanai's full summer kitchen plus another grilling station on the side terrace.
Capturing its own romantic river view, the luxurious front-to-back master wing has an office/den room next to it and is privately placed apart from the other bedroom suites, two of which are upstairs. With the dock on the side for an unobstructed water view, this boater's haven also provides extra storage for water sports equipment. Leaving no detail overlooked, complete with impact glass, a whole-house generator, and smart-house automation, this riverfront showplace is one of the finest estates in Riomar Bay, where the charming village, ocean beach, and private clubs are close at hand.
