271 Riverway Drive
Vero Beach, Florida 32963

One of Seagrove's most magnificent riverfront settings gives unsurpassed views and privacy to this custom-built estate presiding over 220+/- feet of shoreline in a paradise of Old Florida beauty.  Set well back from Riverway Drive on the sprawling point property, the impressive five-bedroom residence commands unobstructed vistas over a wide stretch of the river to the tree-cloaked nature reserve on the distant shore, where no other house is within view.

Designed by Vero Beach architect George Bollis, the timeless traditional-style residence is extremely well engineered with steel pilings plus concrete-block construction in both interior and exterior walls.  Nearly every room captures the river view, which takes center stage in the dramatic two-story living room where the soaring window wall opens to the resort-style pool patio for outdoor entertaining and enjoying the gorgeous scenery.  Other special features of the residence include the full-service wet bar with wine cellar, the dedicated exercise studio, and the extensive master suite which opens onto a covered balcony giving a breathtaking perspective on the river.  Protected by a rock revetment sea wall, the shoreline is equipped with a multi-boat dock, rounding out the perfect riverfront lifestyle in Vero Beach's beautiful Seagrove West community.

Riverway Drive, Vero Beach, Florida.  Seagrove West offers the serene splendor of a gated, deed-restricted community fronting the Indian River and sparkling lakes, with amenities including private tennis courts and community docks.  Near the highly regarded Saint Edwards School, Seagrove West is only a few miles south of Vero Beach's charming seaside downtown area, providing fine shopping and dining along with noted cultural attractions including the Vero Beach Museum of Art and Riverside Theatre.

Fronting 220+/- feet on the Indian River, this lushly landscaped, nearly one-acre point estate captures panoramic views to the wooded nature preserve across the river.  The 140+/- foot dock includes 12,000-pound and 6,000-pound boat lifts, with a water depth of 7+/- feet.  By the broad waterfront lawns, an expansive lounge patio surrounds the heated pool with spillover spa.  An outdoor shower is provided.  The residence is approached by a sweeping double-entry drive to the walled entrance courtyard and side-entry three-bay garage.

Expertly constructed and impeccably maintained, this thoughtfully designed residence totals a spacious 9,600+/- square feet with five bedrooms, 4 full baths, and two powder rooms.  Abundant storage includes the air-conditioned attic.  Custom millwork is featured throughout, and scenic river views are captured from most rooms.  Amenities include a lightning protection system and built-in speakers. 

First Floor:  Stepping inside the double-door entry of the foyer, river views open through the impressive two-story window-walled living room set off by a pair of Doric columns, an inviting gas fireplace, and limestone floors.  Classic pillars mark the entrance into the formal dining room illuminated by a bay window with plantation shutters.   The guest powder room is off the foyer.  Finished with granite counters and tile floors, the custom gourmet kitchen has Jenn-Air and KitchenAid appliances plus a desk area and large pantry.  Riverview windows and glass doors stretch from the kitchen into the breakfast area and family room with built-in media center.  Perfect for entertaining, the adjoining walk-in wet bar is served by a climate-controlled wine cellar with redwood racking for 1,400+/- bottles.  There is a separate laundry/utility room.  The dedicated exercise studio has a mirrored wall and hardwood flooring with under-laid cushioning.  A powder room is adjacent.  Fitted with custom built-ins, the bay-windowed sitting room offers flexibility for use as a bedroom, served by an adjacent bath.  River views backdrop the bedroom with en-suite bath that also opens to serve the pool patio.

Second Floor:  In a private wing, the large window-lined master suite opens to a covered balcony capturing romantic views of the Indian River and sunset.  Three large walk-in closets accompany the master bath featuring a jetted tub, walk-in shower, two vanities, and separate water closet.  River views also highlight the master suite's adjoining cherry-paneled office/study with Brazilian cherry floor.  In the other wing, two bedrooms are served by a connecting bath.
