Dale Sorensen Real Estate sales associate Lauren Merrell sponsoring Teacher’s Night at Space Coast Lightfest

VERO BEACH, FL/NOVEMBER 2020– The holiday spirit is upon us already, but for none more than Dale Sorensen Real Estate sales associate Lauren Merrell.  Merrell is excited to be sponsoring the annual Space Coast Lightfest for the 2020 holiday season.

“Giving back to the community is very important to me,” said Merrell.  “While this is the second year that I’ve sponsored the Lightfest, this is the first time I’ve sponsored Teacher’s Night.  My mom was a teacher so I have first-hand experience with the amount of dedication and work that goes into their job. I’m happy to be able to give back to them in some way.” The first fifty teachers to arrive on December 10th will get in to the event at no charge.  All other teachers will receive a discount on that day.

Merrell, a Florida native, grew up in Brevard County.  After attending the University of Central Florida, she moved to Orlando.  When she and her husband decided to start their family, they moved back to Brevard County. 

“I decided last year to sponsor Lightfest because it’s a family activity that my family has enjoyed many times over the years” Merrell said.  “It’s always been a great event, but especially now, when social distancing is so important and you can choose to stay in your car, drive through and still have the experience.”

Space Coast Lightfest is a holiday light spectacular on display at Wickham Park from 11/23/20 to 1/3/21. It is over a mile long, with more than 3 million lights with several events taking place, including a 5K Run, activities with Santa and strolling through the lights.  Proceeds from Lightfest benefit The Boy Scouts of America.  For more information about the event visit their website at https://www.spacecoastlightfest.com.

Merrell has been a Realtor® since 2008 and joined DSRE when the firm opened their first Brevard County office. “One of the reasons I love working at Dale Sorensen Real Estate is they share my philosophy of giving back to the community.” Merrell has been the recipient of numerous Top Producer and service awards.

Magnificent Indian River Shores Manor listed by Sam Robbins, Dale Sorensen Real Estate

Magnificent Indian River Shores Manor listed by Sam Robbins, Dale Sorensen Real Estate

VERO BEACH, FL/OCTOBER 2020– If you took all the best features of a hundred gorgeous homes and put them into one house, you would have the magnificently unique house at 111 Shores Drive. This 2-story, 4 bedroom and 4 full bath, one ½ bath home is listed by Sam Robbins, Broker Associate, Dale Sorensen Real Estate, for $1.75 million.  Located in the coveted Shores neighborhood in Indian River Shores, the entire property is surrounded by stunning foliage including old oaks, swaying palm trees, Spanish moss and flowering orchids.  But it’s the interior of this home that takes the breath of everyone who walks through the front doors.

Walking into this gorgeous manor is similar to walking into one in France or Germany. Elegant, carved woods, elegant sconces and chandeliers, thick cushiony rugs and room after room of stunning stained-glass windows are a few of the breath-taking features of this home. Just walking up the steps to the front door, one’s eyes are riveted to Flora, a goddess of sorts, on the large stained-glass window that greets you and implores you to come inside. In fact, the manor is named after her. Once you’ve entered be prepared to be almost overwhelmed with classic turn-of-the-century beauty, from the hand carved staircase that was rescued from a home in Indiana to the warm wood floors beneath you. There is a second beautiful wood staircase that was rescued from a home in Iowa.

The 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. Somehow, 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.

Many of the walls of the home were salvaged from the sixth floor of a department store in downtown Pittsburg.  The formal living room highlight is a fireplace with a gorgeous oak surround that was shipped from New Orleans and purchased at an auction in New York. The beautiful French doors in the living area lead out to a brick paver pool deck, summer kitchen and outdoor dining space complete with custom motorized screens that make it easy to enclose the area.  The pool and hot tub are open allowing for the warmth of the sun to glisten off the water.

A triple arch leads to the formal dining room showcasing a Lincrusta border and a ceiling that was created with eight salvaged doors.  Leading into the kitchen from the family room/bar area are saloon doors that came from a turn of the century saloon in Maryland.  Unique to the house are confessional doors used as pantry and closet doors.  The kitchen is surprisingly fresh and modern with professional grade appliances.  A custom designed chandelier came from a brownstone in New York while the sconces were once in an old railroad car. The kitchen cabinets with granite tops were custom made by a French-Canadian cabinet maker in Fort Lauderdale.

All 4 bedrooms have their own full baths with stained glass windows, marble countertops and sophisticated wallpaper.  This home has an overabundance of closets and storage areas, including a secret area under one of the staircases. While there are two beautiful staircases, there is also an elevator to the second floor. His den includes doors that once were exterior doors of a home in Indiana, while her office at the landing of staircase number two, is bright and filled with light.  A patio off the second floor looks over the pond and faces the early morning sun.

This home is filled with stained-glass windows which make colorful and bright rainbows throughout each room.  A gorgeous stain glass work features a peacock, his spectacular tail feathers spread.  There are beautiful examples of Fretwork, scrolled wood and metal, throughout the home.  This home has to be viewed in person to truly appreciate its many outstanding features.
