We all know that the events of 2020 have changed the way people think about their homes and lifestyles. All across the country, residents in densely populated areas are seeking refuge in the warm open air of the Sunshine State this Winter. Broader acceptance of working remotely has also caused some to make the move to Florida to find a better balance of indoor/outdoor living. For those who dream of beachfront living or spending their afternoons on the back nine, there has never been a better time to consider living on the Treasure Coast.
The quaint town of Orchid, Florida located on a barrier island between the Atlantic Coast and the Indian River near Vero Beach is home to Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club. This private, low-density gated community offers its residents casual, island living with world-class amenities and the highest level of service.
Although there are many golf communities in South Florida, it’s extremely rare to find the combination of an oceanfront lifestyle and an award-winning golf club community. At Orchid Island, the lock-and-leave lifestyle of its oceanfront condominiums is experiencing rising demand from those who recognize this unique opportunity.
The luxurious, low-rise oceanfront condominiums overlook nearly one mile of private beach. Spacious residences, oceanfront terraces and outdoor kitchens provide spectacular settings for open-air living that takes full advantage of the Atlantic views. This intimate community enjoys natural social distancing with limited access to the private elevators. Inside spacious floorplans and well-appointed living spaces feature expansive impact glass doors and windows with built-in storm shutters for resident convenience. Homeowners will enjoy the carefree condo lifestyle as well as the ideal location adjacent to the West Indies style private Beach Club at Orchid Island.
“Our oceanfront condominiums are truly unique,” says Anne Torline, Managing Broker at Orchid Island Realty. “There’s very few places where you can find this combination of lifestyle and location. We currently are offering a 3 Bedroom, 4 Full Bath residence with over 3,800 sq. ft. for $2.1 million. It’s an incredible value in this incredible community.”
At Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club no two days are alike. In addition to the oceanfront Beach Club, the resort-style amenities include the Arnold Palmer designed 18-hole championship course. This Audubon certified course offers a challenge for golfers and a chance to experience the beautiful habitat and wildlife that makes the course so unique.
The private club community offers a wide array of health and wellness amenities, an onsite Tennis and Fitness Center and a golf clubhouse that plays host to a variety of planned events. A new community kayak launch provides for up-close and personal interaction with the natural neighbors of the Indian River Lagoon, and the Orchid Island Spa is also available offering a wide array of personal treatment services.
Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life not only for the natural neighbors who live in the area but for the people who live here as well. Members and residents enjoy the convenience of a golf cart lifestyle. Traveling the community via golf cart makes getting to any of the amenities a fun and enjoyable experience.
At Orchid Island, luxury residential properties range from the $800s to over $8 million and include custom estate residences, courtyard homes, cottage, or oceanfront condominiums.
