River Club at CarltonEast Coast Middle Florida
Located just north of Johns Island in one of the top Florida retirement cities, the River Club at Carlton is the place to find beautiful Vero Beach luxury homes. Established in early 2000, construction had stalled for a while and then graciously resumed. The riverfront neighborhood offers newer construction for a good value because it does not have dedicated private beach access. However, while the high-quality, large condominiums and single family homes are not oceanfront, they are close enough to take strolls on the Vero Beach beaches from three nearby public beach access points, and have a delightful view of the community's private lake and the Indian River as well as the lavish tropical landscaping.
Many of the estate size homes are on the Indian River Lagoon. The Vero Beach luxury homes exude island living along with two clubhouses and swimming pools as well as their cheery fitness center all within easy walking distance. Those who enjoy marine life will appreciate the community boat dock and fishing pier on the Indian River in the neighborhood. The Indian River Lagoon is a key attribute to those searching for the best places to retire in Florida revolving around boating and the sea.

Folks who enjoy an active lifestyle on a bicycle will be pleased to know there is a safe bike path along A1A which spans the entire length of the barrier island. The sidewalk is conveniently marked in one-mile increments so you can keep track of the distance you’re walking or jogging, and there are three public Vero Beach beaches in the area: Seagrape Access, Turtle Trail, and the Tracking Station Beach. Seagrape Access and Turtle Trail have paved parking areas and boardwalks but no lifeguards; while the Tracking Station Beach Park offers lifeguards as well as a pavilion with grill, picnic tables, and showers. Another nearby walking and bike trail is the area's famous Jungle Trail. The dense tropical foliage of Indian River’s Jungle Trail winds for nearly eight miles from the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge through the Captain Forster Hammock Preserve to Old Winter Beach Road, with signs along the way offering explanations regarding the area’s history.
Riverfront and estate size homes, single-family residences, carriage homes and condominiums with high attention to detail are all part of the River Club.

The River Club at Carlton is part of Indian River Shores, which encompasses seven square miles along the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River. With fewer than 4,000 residents, Indian River Shores has a special sort of small-town charm while still being close enough to the “big city” for convenience. The McKee Botanical Gardens, Sebastian Inlet State Park, Riverside Theatre and Vero Beach Art Museum provide indoor and outdoor leisure activities.
Beachland Elementary, Rosewood Magnet School, Osceola Magnet School, Saint Peter's Academy, and Indian River Charter High School are the closest best schools to the River Club, and there are also adult classes nearby at the Indian River State College, Museum of Art, Environmental Learning Center, and Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution.
