Every now and then a home has the ability to evoke a sense of peacefulness and tranquility the moment you enter the doors. The impeccably designed home at 750 Lake Drive in Vero Beach, Florida is just such a home, giving one the urge to simply take your shoes off, grab a favorite read and relax within the warm and inviting rooms, filled with beautiful and exceptional finishes and custom millwork and cabinetry.
Viewing the Mizner Mediterranean-style home from the expansive driveway, it’s abundantly clear that this home is one of a kind. Built by Chad Kelly of Kelly Construction & Development as a personal residence and to showcase the workmanship typical in houses built by the local contractor, the property is entered through gates onto a courtyard. The beautiful arched and wood trimmed front doors greet you as if with open arms. As you enter the living/dining area through six marble columns, the room is enhanced with a fireplace, also marble, flanked by a duet of built-in bookcases. The ambiance of the room is evident with its cross-beamed pecky cypress ceiling, sister chandeliers and marble floors. A set of three arched wood-trimmed French doors leading to the patio allows incoming sunlight to play on the textures of the room. The interior design is a testament to architect Gregory Anderson’s talents.
The centerpiece of the kitchen is the oversized furniture style island, it’s wood base contrasting nicely with the blond butcher-block counter top. The island features a copper vegetable sink with soft nickel finished spigot. The ceiling features wood beams with a wrought iron and copper chandelier over the kitchen table. Warm cherry wood cabinetry extends throughout the large kitchen, a perfect setting for the large farmhouse sink. Stunning craftsmanship has created a cove like area of rich wood protecting the Chef’s grade gas stove, oven and pot washer. The brick backsplash above the stove has decorative tiles and practically hidden cupboards, perfect for your spices and olive oils. The butler’s pantry continues the Mediterranean theme in it’s cabinets and backsplash. The fireplace services both the kitchen and the family room, acting as a divider for the two rooms. The ample family room features an arched pecky cypress ceiling with large beams and wood trimmed French doors leading to the outside. Both rooms also feature the marble with creamy swirls of brown and tan that perfectly match all the wood in the home.

Location: The Sarojin, Thailand
The Sarojin encompasses everything you could want in vacation: All the amenities of a five-star luxury resort with the proximity to both rainforests and diving locations and a romantic atmosphere on top of all that. Fairly intimate, its 56 rooms are situated on 11km of beach in Khao Lak, near the Similan Islands’ diving sanctuaries, five national parks, and Phang Nga Bay’s limestone islands. And, even if you want to play a round, three 18-hole golf courses sit within an hour from its grounds.
Seven two-story buildings, each set within a 10-acre tropical garden, house the 56 residences, each created to have a peaceful atmosphere not far removed from the nature outside. While simple, your stay here gives you complimentary access to catamarans, kayaks, windsurfers, paddleboards, mountain bikes, and the fitness center.
So, where do you begin? To take in as much of your surroundings as possible, start with The Sarojin’s personal guides and Imagineer personal concierge. Their insights and recommendations, let you plan any number of “just for two” excursions on land, in the water, or some combination thereof. Beyond swimming, diving, or kayaking, consider a guided jungle adventure, complete with a gourmet-style safari lunch, or a private charter on luxury yacht Lady Sarojin.
As well, their input isn’t only those once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Work with the resort’s team to create a romantic dining experience according to your tastes – by a jungle waterfall, on a white sandy beach, or even on a river bank following a cooking class.
Much like the activities around the resort, dining, too , turns into a journey. Taste top-notch Thai and Mediterranean cuisine at the resort’s two restaurants, Edge and Fiscus, while the award-winning wine cellar and bar are stocked with an excellent selection of imported beverages. A la carte breakfast is further served all day, with sparkling wine included. To top is all off, wherever you go, a view of the beach turns even the most mundane experience into a romantic occasion.
No resort vacation is complete without a spa, and The Sarojin situates the award-winning Pathways over its main estuary and central lay line. Much like the residences, the spa, too feels secluded while taking advantage of its natural surroundings – here, a coconut grove and the Andaman Sea in the distance. After walking along its winding boardwalk, you can select from an array of treatments performed in four open-air pavilions, and finish your stay with a rain shower or couple’s bath.
Named a Conde Nast Traveler Readers Award Top Hotel in 2017, The Sarojin has one distinct advantage. Because of the weather, you can schedule your trip at any time of the year, and have access to the same assortment of intimate, adrenaline-pumping land and water adventures.

Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate members from across the globe convened in South beach, Florida in May for the 16th Annual Luxury Real Estate Spring Retreat. Attendees heard from a variety of accomplished presenters, connected with industry leaders and discussed the latest trends regarding luxury real estate around the world. The esteemed event culminated with a festive Cuban-themed closing party, honoring Lifetime Achievement Award recipients Dale and Matilde Sorensen and their many accomplishments in the industry.
Dale and Matilde Sorensen: Dale Sorensen Real Estate, Inc.
How did you start real estate?
MS: I owned a quaint little store on the Barrier Island and I was helping Dale with his real estate company when I decided to become a Realtor® myself. It worked well as we also had two young children with busy schedules. I’ve also really loved interior design and home décor so it was a perfect fit for me. That was 40 years ago and I haven’t regretted it for one minute.
DS: I started Dale Sorensen Real Estate in 1978 out of necessity – I needed a job. The large company I worked at for 10 years was moving out of the area and we did not want to relocate. My responsibilities with them included managing their real estate interest in Florida and their resort properties in the Dominican Republic, so I had to obtain my broker’s license. After a lot of discussion with Matilde and our family, we decided to go into business ourselves.
What are you favorite parts of your job?
MS: I love meeting new people and getting to know them and their families. It’s fun sharing everything that Vero Beach has to off
er; this is a growing community, but it’s never lost its small-town feel. I love going into homes and learning all the specifics about each one and what makes it unique and special.
What makes your company stand out?
DS: Since our inception, we have made community service a priority. We are company, and a family, that gives back to the community in many ways. In addition, we have created a very recognizable brand, not only in our area, but throughout the industry; for this we are indebted to our children, Dale Jr. and Elizabeth. We are noted for our creative marketing programs and cutting-edge technology. Two of they key elements that bind all this together are our reputation for fairness and honesty along with the level of service we provide our customers. In very simple terms – you reap what you sow.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
DS: Outside of work I enjoy fishing and diving with my grandson, JD, and son, Dale Jr. I still play little tennis and play golf regularly. Matilde and I love to travel and to have been fortunate to have traveled all over the world.
Where are you favorite places to travel?
DS: Italy – especially Tuscany and Venice, Napa Valley, Burgundy, London, Paris and Hong Kong.
What inspires you to succeed?
MS: It’s the people that inspire me to succeed. Success to me is when I hand over the keys to a home and see the looks on the new homeowner’s face; that look of pride and ownership. Or when I’m able to tell a seller that I found a buyer for their home. I don’t feel like I sell homes – I develop a relationship with clients based on their personalities and find them the perfect home.
