Nestled into gently rolling coastal terrain in the laid-back city of Vero Beach, Florida, this low-density gated golf community offers a selection of attractive homesites and quality single-family homes combined with first-class recreational amenities and a nationally acclaimed golf course that has been featured on ESPN, The Robb Report, Links Magazine and a host of other national venues.
Indian River Club is ideally situated close enough to the Atlantic Ocean to enjoy soft sea breezes, yet far enough to have the feel of a woodlands nature preserve, with traditionally styled homes designed to serve as personal sanctuaries within the framework of a rural, natural setting. Broad verandas, light-filled indoor/outdoor living rooms, shuttered windows and French-doors opening out to the park-like grounds are integral to the architectural design.
With 18 terrific holes of golf on the property and miles of magnificent Atlantic beaches nearby, Indian River Club is a perfect place to savor the simple pleasures of an Old Florida lifestyle, and the many attractions of the renowned Treasure Coast. Send me information now!
