1300 River Ridge Drive
Vero Beach, Florida 32963

Glistening waters stretch far and wide to the distant coastline from the perspective of this extraordinary riverfront estate seeming like an island resort compound, secluded by the lush beauty of mature tropical foliage in the peaceful setting at the end of a cul-de-sac.  A private drive winds its way under the tree canopy to this beautifully renovated five-bedroom residence, a vision of classic grace with its welcoming entry sheltered by the upper verandah.

Flowing off the center entrance hall, the main rooms are designed for effortless living and entertaining, and feature special touches that give a designer look to the timeless decor.  River views and inviting fireplaces are highlighted in the living room, family/game room, and dining room, open to the cathedral-ceilinged kitchen that showcases a La Cornue range for the master chef.  Glass doors bring everyone outside to enjoy the spellbinding views from this relaxing resort-like realm where the infinity pool appears to flow into the river, and has in-water seating by the exotic tiki bar, beyond which the dock doubles as another fabulous lounge space extending over the water from the 225 +/- foot shoreline.  River views also backdrop the four main bedrooms featuring a luxurious first-floor master suite.  For added privacy, the separate guest house is accessed from a secret garden where stepping stones cross a soothing water feature with fountains and a waterfall.  An idyllic paradise, this riverfront compound is truly one-of-a-kind.

Location

River Ridge Drive, Vero Beach, Florida.  This quiet cul-de-sac is just minutes from the charming oceanfront village of Vero Beach, known for its appealing blend of relaxed sophistication and timeless seaside beauty.

Property

On a spellbinding sweep of the Indian River, this lushly private gated compound fronts 225 +/- feet of shoreline overlooking the wide waters, distant wooded coastline, and sunset.  Spanning the entire water side of the house, the resort-inspired outdoor living space creates a series of enchanting settings from the awning-covered verandah to the garden terrace, dining lanai with summer kitchen, and tiki bar with seating built into the infinity pool with spa.  At the water's edge, a seating area with firepit is by the lounge deck on the lift-equipped dock.

Residence

Five bedrooms, five full and two half baths, and three garage bays are included in the spacious total of 7,649 +/- square feet with architectural millwork, hardwood/marble floors, and impact glass as featured finishes.

First Floor:  Off the classic entrance hall, the living room is an understatedly elegant gathering space that overlooks the river through a wall of French doors, and centers on a beautiful gas fireplace.  One side of this room opens into an inviting custom-fitted office/library, while the other side has a wide entryway into the riverside dining room set off by a unique glass-encased fireplace also seen from outdoors.  A beamed cathedral ceiling highlights the open chef's kitchen offering marble counters, a wood-topped island/bar, and high-end appliances including a La Cornue range and two Sub-Zero refrigerators, one in the pantry.  The comfortable riverside family/game room has a fireplace and wet bar.  Casually elegant, the romantic peak-ceilinged master suite overlooks the scenic river through a window wall leading to a terrace.   Two walk-in closets accompany the suite's spa-inspired marble bath which opens to a fountained garden with outdoor shower and features a soaking tub, glass-enclosed steam shower, open shower, and private water closet.

Second Floor:  Three bedrooms, each with a full bath, all open to a riverfront verandah where the water view seems captured from the bow of a boat.  Accessed from the verandah or spiral stairs in the secret garden, the guest house creates a private retreat in a wonderful peak-ceilinged living/sleeping space featuring a wet bar, Murphy bed, and bath.
