One of Orchid Island's finest riverfront estates, this understatedly elegant compound-like paradise created by The Hill Group gives the ultimate resort experience in idyllic natural beauty.

Embraced in lush greenery on a wide-open stretch of the Indian River, this compound-like West Indies-inspired estate enjoys a worlds-away setting at Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club, an exclusive barrier island community acclaimed as a Distinguished Emerald Club of the World and a certified Audubon Sanctuary.  No detail has been overlooked and no expense spared in the creation of this understatedly elegant, four-bedroom masterwork by The Hill Group, a preeminent Vero Beach-based builder with a reputation for unsurpassed quality and integrity that spans more than three decades.

At the tree-lined motor court, a vine-covered arbor frames mahogany gates that beckon into the gorgeous pool courtyard serving as both the arrival and central open-air entertainment space, surrounded by the main residence and two separate guest houses in the ultra-private layout which offers outdoor access from all principal rooms in the manner of a traditional island villa.  Inside the main house, the double-height gathering room is the breathtaking centerpiece, where the sunset view of the river seems taken from an artist's canvas.  Hand-crafted mahogany millwork is a signature element here and throughout the house, adding intimate warmth to the grand overall size, with plantation shutters giving a balance of privacy and openness.

Meeting every desire, other features range from the exquisite first-floor master wing to the two separate offices and screened porch, a quiet place to relax and dine outdoors in this picturesque riverfront setting, with no other home within view.  Complete with its own dock, perfect for taking a sunset cruise on the river or a voyage out to the ocean, this private paradise offers the ultimate resort experience as one of Orchid Island's finest riverfront estates.

Second Floor:  Off the bridge hallway open to the gathering room below, all rooms on this level capture long-range river views from inside and out on the verandah.  Handsome custom built-ins appoint the vaulted library and two separate offices, one next to the media room.

Guest Houses:  Each providing a sitting room, bedroom, and bath, the two guest houses are on either side of the courtyard, with one doubling as the cabana and the other above the garage.
