502 Bay Drive
Vero Beach, Florida 32963

Directly fronting the Intracoastal Waterway on a private island of Riomar Bay, this alluring five-bedroom estate personifies resort-at-home living in a compound-like haven at one with the panoramic riverscape of wide-open waters and wooded isles, reaching both bridges to the mainland.  Lush foliage secludes the West Indies-inspired residence and guest house/cabana in a courtyard oasis around the shoreline's infinity pool, where lounge terraces and a charming fireside gazebo make this an idyllic outdoor entertainment space, ending a perfect day with a romantic sunset over the river.  Placed to the side, the recently built dock is an added asset for the boater.

At once classic and freshly refined, this immaculate residence by architect William Hayes and respected builder Parent Construction tastefully updated and enlarged this estate in 2015 .  River views fill the spacious open living areas and nearly all bedrooms, including luxurious master suites on both levels.   Other features range from the upstairs bonus room to the comforts of a Vantage lighting/sound system and a full-house generator.  While this exquisite waterfront estate provides everything one could desire in its own private realm, it also has all of the village's noted attractions close at hand.
