Car: Recommended

Vero Beach is a small town with big cultural and recreational opportunities.

Cultural: Vero Beach Art Museum with exhibits, classes, and lectures. The Atlantic Classical Orchestra, with both symphony orchestra

and chamber music series. Art Under the Oaks Art Festival March 13-15, 2015.

Gardening: McKee Botanical Garden. Indian River Garden Fest the last weekend of January 2015.

Beaches: Many beaches on the ocean and the Indian River Lagoon. Sun, surf and sand.

Fishing: Both salt and fresh water fishing, ocean, Indian River Lagoon, Blue Cypress Lake, and the Stick Marsh.

Restaurants and Cafes: Vero Beach and vicinity offer a restaurants for a wide variety of tastes and prices. You can walk to several from the house, including La Patisserie and Tea and Chi. The Osceola Bistro has both indoor and outdoor seating, and it's dog-friendly! Some of my favorites are Kata, 14th Avenue Steakhouse, Melody Inn, Bijou, and Bacci Trattoria. A little further afield, I enjoy the unique atmosphere and ocean view of the Ocean Grill for a special dinner out. For a casual beach breakfast or lunch, I like the Seaside Grill, on the boardwalk in Jaycee Park. Try Marsh Landing for wonderful Florida and southern food (frog legs, swamp cabbage) and a glimpse of the history and agriculture of Indian River County in Fellsmere.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: I grew up in New England and came to Florida after completing my master's degree. I lived in this house for 26 years; I ran my consulting business out of the bonus room, and later rode my bicycle to my job less than a half mile away. I finally moved to Melbourne when I took a job at Harris Corporation.

Why the Owner Chose Vero Beach, FL, USA:
I love this old house and the neighborhood. Wood floors, awning windows, lovely light. There are sidewalks all through the neighborhood, so it's easy and safe to walk to the public library, or to the restaurants, cafes and galleries in the Downtown. But to tell the truth, it was the breeze that always cools the outdoor room and the old crape myrtle that convinced me to buy the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I guess it's the light in this house that is especially lovely. And it is centrally located. Make a short drive to the beach or shopping, walk to church, bike to the park, take the bus that passes nearby. Vero Beach offers such a variety of attractions. In addition to its many natural resources, it has a number of excellent cultural offerings, including the Vero Beach Museum, the Riverside Theater, and the Atlantic Classical Orchestra. These and many more are nearby.
