DSRE Broker Associate Matilde Sorensen Announces Significant Price Reduction for Riverfront Estate

VERO BEACH, FL/FEBRUARY 2020 – Dale Sorensen Real Estate Broker Associate Matilde Sorensen has announced a significant price drop for “Palm Cottage”, a magnificent riverfront estate on Vero Beach’s Barrier Island. Originally listed for $8,875,000, the price has been reduced to $7,500,000.  The property is located at 721 Grove Place in Orchid Island.

“This is one of Vero Beach’s most beautiful homes,” Sorensen said. “It has one of the most magnificent master suites with a fireplace that is visible from both the bedroom and the bath.  The kitchen is every cook’s dream.  But the view of the river and the amazing outdoor living space is simply breathtaking. It’s a great place to watch our famous Florida sunsets or see dolphins jumping.”

Situated on nearly an acre of lush, tropically landscaped property, with expansive views of the Indian River, the 2 guest cottages and main house make up almost 9,000 square feet of living area.  The estate includes a beautiful courtyard featuring a glimmering pool and spa, a lovely “mermaid” fountain and splashes of meticulous green lawn. The main house features polished marble floors, a total of 9 fireplaces, 2 bedrooms, 5 baths, and an elevator to the second floor. The Chef’s kitchen is impeccable with white plantation style cabinetry, two sinks, a side by side Sub-Zero fridge with 3 freezer drawers, double built-in ovens, and an island featuring a 6-burner Thermador gas stovetop and overhead hood vent.  The adjacent family room looks out onto the lanai.  The first-floor guest suite is complete with its own laundry area and a full size ensuite featuring a marble surround jacuzzi tub.

On the second floor is the impressive master suite. The bedroom itself is elegant with glowing wood floors, a unique custom-built wood-beamed tray ceiling and a private deck to view the area’s stunning sunsets.  The lavish master bath is magnificent with marble floors, black and gold furniture-style footed sinks, an oval jacuzzi tub and another one of the home’s beautiful stone fireplaces.  The all-marble master shower has multiple shower heads and features a large window that overlooks the Indian River lagoon. 

The master suite also includes a beautifully appointed den and a piano room with glorious views of the river.  Both rooms feature polished wood floors, custom tray ceilings and access to the private balcony.  Access to the second floor is granted through a stone staircase or via a private elevator.

The north and south cottages are separated by a walk-through. The north cottage has 2 bedrooms while the South cottage features 1 bedroom.  Both cottages feature laundry rooms, kitchens, living rooms and ample windows to allow for lots of natural light while the ground floor rooms open to the courtyard.

The outdoor living spaces of this home are incomparable and feature a summer kitchen, covered lanai, open pool deck with twin fireplaces on either side of a beautiful heated pool and 4 single-stream fountains. 

The home’s dock is accessed just off the main pool and offers fishing, boating and views of the Indian River Lagoon with all its local flora and fauna. Watch dolphins, turtles, egrets and other wildlife from the privacy of your own dock.

Located on Vero Beach’s Barrier Island in the exclusive community of Orchid Island, residents enjoy a world class lifestyle and amenities.

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.
