VERO BEACH, FL – Charlotte Terry and Kate Weeks of Charlotte Terry Group at Alex MacWilliam Real Estate sold this exquisite estate at 1556 Smugglers Cove in Smugglers Cove for $2,499,000.
Prepare to be dazzled by this beautifully conceived and executed three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath estate built to the highest standards and nestled amidst tropical landscaping in the peaceful, seaside, cul-de-sac community of Smugglers Cove.
From the long, columned, covered front porch, you'll step through glass-and-walnut wood French doors into the foyer, a long, open gallery formed by arched white columns and crowned by a lofty barrel ceiling.
The foyer's exquisite, eight-inch walnut plank flooring flows into the living room, then continues throughout the home, into every room except the bathrooms which feature marble tile. The home's owners had a master cabinet maker flown in from Beverly Hills for the home's gorgeous, all-walnut woodwork.
From the foyer, gaze across the formal living room/dining room space through a trio of tall, glass French doors topped with transom lights, to the covered patio that opens to the swimming pool and Travertine marble pool deck.
The millwork of the living room/ dining room ceiling and walls features quadruple crown molding and is simply breathtaking, the cream and white hues enhancing the elegant design. A pair of exquisite Schonbek chandeliers, one in the living room, one above the dining table, and two matching sconces in the dining room add Old-World romance. On the opposite wall, the sleek, black-framed fireplace with its white millwork surround contributes a cozy touch.
Numerous double French doors and wide, impact-resistant windows - at least two in every room save one bathroom - welcome a wonderful wealth of pure, ambient light all day long, melding indoors and outdoors and, with the soaring ceilings, further enhance the open, airy feeling of the home's interior.
The east wing contains kitchen, family room, library and garage.
The island kitchen is a work of design art, offering virtually hands-free cooking. Stem-to-stern, high-tech and gorgeous, it's a chef's dream, with glowing walnut "one touch" cabinetry and a huge island with white striated marble top that contains cooktop, dishwasher, deep sink, storage and lunch counter. This epicurean kitchen also includes a push-to-open Thermador fridge and separate stand-alone freezer, microwave, side-by-side wall ovens and disposal.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a wet bar and a large laundry/utility room.
The family room is a spacious with banks of windows along the north and east sides, including a wide bay looking out to the pool.
The library is arguably the home's cabinetry piece de resistance. Swathed in glorious walnut, from floor to coffered ceiling, it is anchored on the north end by a full-wall, cabinet, glass-front display unit and yet another Schonbek crystal chandelier.
The owner's suite dominates the west wing opening through French doors to the covered patio, with a bay to the north and a soaring, vaulted ceiling. There are two walk-in closets and a long, elegant marble bathroom with walk-in shower and two separate water closets flanking a big curved stand-alone soaking tub. A long walnut vanity contains a pair of rectangular sinks and a walnut-framed, ceiling-to-vanity mirror glows with crystal sconces.
The two guest bedrooms are both en suite, one with two closets, the other with one walk-in closet.
Smugglers Cove is only a short drive away from Vero's charming beachside village, with its excellent shoppes, boutiques, resorts, pubs and epicurean delights from casual to farm-to-table and fine dining, as well as numerous parks both riverside and oceanfront, a boat launch, jogging trail, tennis, Riverside Theatre (Equity), the Vero Beach Museum of Art (Accredited), the exclusive Moorings Club and Quail Valley River Club, high-ranking schools both public and private and pristine, uncrowded beaches.
Vero Beach is an affluent, second home and vacation home community with twenty-two miles of riverfront and oceanfront properties. Compared to many other resort communities like Naples, Palm Beach, Miami and other areas of South Florida and the West Coast, people are discovering that Vero Beach property prices are truly a bargain. Whether seeking a primary/secondary residence or a vacation escape, Vero Beach is an undiscovered coastal gem.
