The surf’s up at the Surf Club, a new luxury oceanfront community, developed by Water’s Edge Estates, LLC and designed by architect Gregory Anderson.
The 11-unit project features two-story, oceanfront townhomes and the home at 4720 Hwy. A1A Unit 9 at Surf Club is one of only two remaining developer units.
Terraces, balconies and a covered beachfront lanai optimize the opportunity for outdoor living. The property is accessed through a private courtyard that creates an intimate space to relax after spending a day on the beach. The design accommodates a variety of indoor and outdoor living spaces.
To the right, upon entry into the courtyard, a private staircase leads to a carriage house above the two-car garage, further defining the living areas. With a private bath and balcony, the generous guest quarters enable visitors to enjoy their stay without getting underfoot. Replete with engineered oak flooring and a kitchenette with granite countertops and refrigerator, the space will make guests feel pampered while providing them with welcome privacy.
Within the confines of the courtyard, a splash pool, summer kitchen and gas fireplace create a spot to host dinner parties in a private outdoor setting, lounge over coffee or doze by the pool in the afternoon.
Anderson used traditional British West Indies architectural features to complement the ocean and its environs. Exposed rafter tails, smooth white stucco, herringbone railings, French doors, and numerous transom topped doors and windows allowing for optimal light all add to the carefree, elegant air of this beachside home.
Across the courtyard, the double-door entry opens to a spacious layout with an uninterrupted view of the ocean. The foyer sets the interior’s welcoming tone, with detailed millwork and finishes that are carried throughout the house, including tray ceilings, cypress loggia ceilings and poplar molding.
To the left, a quarter-turn wooden staircase leads to the second floor, and to the right a set of French doors lead to an area that can function as a mother-in-law suite with a private bath and separate entry that leads to the courtyard; or the suite can serve as a formal living room, a library or an office.
The central corridor with a reef shellstone floor leads to a powder room and elevator before opening into the combined living space at the back of the home, which is furthest from the road and overlooks the ocean. Here, the main living and dining areas are adjacent to the island kitchen, creating a casual living space that opens onto the oceanfront patio through a wall of glass doors. An elegant gas fireplace adds an intimate touch.
The chef’s kitchen is equipped with Thermador appliances, custom cabinetry, stone countertops and an island with breakfast bar seating.
The stone patio abuts a generous green space that meets the sand dunes covered with sea oats. A new seawall protects the property and the ocean is reached via private, gated beach access.
The upstairs living area can be accessed via the home’s elevator or finely finished main staircase. The second-floor landing opens into the luxurious master suite with an inverted nickel-board ceiling, engineered oak flooring and walk-in closet. The elegant master bath features twin custom sink vanities, designer fixtures, a water closet, soaking tub, spacious shower with rainfall shower head and water closet.
The master suite’s private covered balcony with ocean view, herringbone railing and cypress ceiling carry the high-quality detail and elegance into the outdoor areas, a delightful space to enjoy the sunrise as it emerges each morning over the blue-green waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
The laundry room and elevator are situated between the master and en-suite guest bedrooms. A covered balcony overlooks the pool and courtyard from the guest suite. The room is reached through the upstairs loft with pocket doors separating the spaces and creating a private sitting area.
“Surf Club has been a big success,” says Premier Estate Properties broker associate and co-listing agent Cindy O’Dare. “Buyers love the look and floorplan. The direct ocean views are phenomenal, and the homes are filled with light. As an added plus, stores and shops are within walking distance.”
Surf Club sits on a two-and-a-half acre site with 400 feet of direct Atlantic Ocean frontage. The property is within walking distance of a guarded public beach at Jaycee Park, shopping and dining in Vero’s charming village by the sea.
The Municipal Marina, Vero Beach Dog Park, and cultural attractions Riverside Theatre and the renowned Vero Beach Museum of Art in Riverside Park are a few minutes away by car.
John’s Island, Quail Valley, Riomar and The Moorings country clubs are all nearby, no more than a 10-minute drive away.
