On the Ocean in Vero Beach!Must SeeTop 10 Florida Condos For Sale
Vero Beach has always been one of Florida’s sweet secrets for those who like to escape the bustling activity of South Florida. Laid back, no real traffic, miles of beach to wander on your own where it is still rare to see another person - a complete respite. Divided from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway, referred to as The Lagoon by locals, one could paddle around and enjoy the highly diversified plant and wildlife if they tired of the beach. Today, it’s fun to take a kayak with a guide who will point out much one could miss on their own and who will take you to see the gentle giant manatees that will swim around your boat. Still undiscovered for the most part, it is seeing some slow growth such as the resort hotel and restaurant built by Gloria Estefan. Although it’s not very close to major airports, the wealthy do land their private aircraft on the local strip to access their beach homes. It remains a quiet haven for those who seek peace and quiet but still like to go exploring or eat at a good restaurant.
When Katherine McConvey, developer and founder of New Jersey-based KMM, discovered it, she decided to build her "forever" home. The heart-stopping 18,000-square-foot mansion she built with 200 feet of beach frontage sported eight bedrooms and twelve baths, three pools, enclosed garages - one with a turntable, and just about every creature comfort one could conceive. But her developer-trained mind couldn’t help but try it on the market, which is what she has now done. Developing, building and designing is an addiction to some and once a project has reached perfection, it’s time to try and best oneself yet again. Besting this home will be hard to achieve. If it sells at or near its asking price, it will be the highest sale price recorded for the area.
Selling completely furnished, luxury finishes include Silver Shadow Alabama limestone, American walnut, exotic marble and onyx, bamboo cane, reticulated aluminum, stainless steel Dutch weave mesh curtain walls, Phillip Jeffries and Wolf-Gordon wallcoverings and bath fixtures by Dornbracht and Duravit. There is a beauty salon, gourmet kitchen with pantry, catering kitchen, all with state-of-the-art appliances, guest house, a pizza oven in the outdoor kitchen, lush landscaping and tiki hut.
