This unique home was designed and built by retired oral surgeon Charles Infante. Charles spent 2 years traveling back and forth from Fort Lauderdale to Vero Beach, hiring tradesmen, seeking permits, and ordering materials.
But the real story is one of a charming couple’s many trips around the US, attending auctions, finding salvagers that were selling antique doors, glass sconces and light shades, sideboards and butler boards. Charles and his wife Priscilla spent more than twenty years collecting items without knowing what house these items would fill.
When the house in Indian River Shores was complete, their collection fit perfectly and is an astounding testament to the couple’s design and decorating talents.
Amazing architecture and detailed wood craftsmanship is found in every corner of this lovely 4 en-suite bedroom pool home! With room after room of stunning carved woods, antique sconces and chandeliers, stained glass windows, two fireplaces, plus two elegant hand-crafted wood staircases and an elevator.
A living room with soaring ceiling and French doors opens to a Mediterranean style covered porch with summer kitchen, heated pool/spa, and lake view. A first floor master suite offers his and hers bathrooms. Other rooms include a formal dining room, butler's pantry, island kitchen with café, a family room with wet bar, an office, and a spacious loft.
