The MooringsEast Coast Middle Florida
This gated Florida community in Vero Beach is one of the most diverse we've seen situated between the barrier island and Indian River. The Moorings offers spacious Vero Beach luxury homes and condominiums on deepwater finger islands connected to the Intracoastal Waterway and Indian River Lagoon. Dolphin, manatee, and birdlife are common sightings along the expansive waterway dotted with secluded islands.
Buyers searching for riverfront homes or condominiums at The Moorings have the option of private boat docks along 7.5 miles of Indian River Lagoon frontage. Whether you head north or south by boat in one of the top Florida retirement cities, you'll find the Fort Pierce Inlet is the closest, approximately 9 miles to the south. The Sebastian Inlet is located 19 miles to the north. The more adventurous types can reach the northeastern tip of the Bahamas which is approximately 100 miles from the Fort Pierce Inlet.
The Moorings golf course is a beautiful, easy to play, executive-style golf course designed by Pete Dye. It borders the Indian River Lagoon and ends at the community's impressive 58,000 square foot golf clubhouse. The new clubhouse has spacious verandas on the second floor overlooking the scenic Indian River where we saw residents relaxing and socializing. The Moorings clubhouse is home to a golf pro shop, a heated resort-style swimming pool, poolside grill, fine dining in the club restaurant, and a library. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the community's 6,500-square-foot fitness center.
