246 Ocean Way, Vero Beach, Florida
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the serene Indian River Lagoon estuary, Vero Beach, Florida, is a hidden gem that has long been cherished by the ultra-wealthy seeking a retreat from bustling city life. Often dubbed “The Hamptons of the South,” this cozy beach town’s allure lies in its commitment to preserving its tranquility, with strict building codes that forbid high-rises and franchised shops from encroaching on its small-town feel.
Ocean Drive stands as the epitome of boutique shopping. The abundance of barrier island golf courses, many of which offer scenic ocean or river views, presents a haven for golf enthusiasts. The land value in Vero Beach trails behind areas like Boca Raton and Miami, and therefore makes it a good value in today’s market.
Vero Beach offers luxurious living, reminiscent of Palm Beach and Dade counties many years ago. For those who missed the opportunity to invest in Vero Beach’s real estate earlier, the regretful phrase “Shoulda coulda woulda” often echoes through their minds
