Indian River Colony Club in Viera - Sometimes Peace of Mind is Most Important


Indian River Colony Club is a gated 55+ community in Viera, Florida.  But Indian River Colony Club (IRCC) is not just any central Florida 55+ development.

IRCC is a lifestyle.

I was speaking with a resident of Indian River Colony Club this past weekend and he related what he likes best about "Indian River".... the peace of mind it offers!

Read my October 2017 market report for Indian River Colony Club here.

First, a little background on IRCC and the 55+ communities in Viera, Florida.  Indian River Colony Club is one of three age restricted (55+) communities in the planned unit of Viera (located north of Melbourne, Florida).   Still, Indian River Colony Club is different from the other two communities (Grand Isle and Heritage Isle).
 
Founded in 1986 IRCC is a gated community of about 800 homes and features a lot of the benefits people are looking for when choosing a 55+ community in Florida including a 24 hour manned gated security entrance, a tremendous clubhouse and private 18 hole golf course.   

Of course there are many more amenities like tennis, heated pool, organized clubs, a chapel and much more. 
 
Indian River Colony Club offers retirement living in the best place in the world - near central Florida's beaches.   Orlando International Airport is about 45 minutes away, medical offices, VA Medical Clinic and the new Viera Hospital are nearby.  

Shopping and restaurants are convenient as well the Maxwell King Center for Performing Arts, cruise ships at Port Canaveral and much more! 
 
Here is the peace of mind the resident referred to in our conversation...  While the facilities offered are superb the a major appeal of Indian River Colony Club is  the worry free advantage of true maintenance free living.
 
While the IRCC community is older than the other 55+ developments older does not mean inferior as a large percentage of the homes in IRCC have been updated by the owners through the years!
