HOMES OF THE TREASURE COAST
older people and we are not old school.”
When the couple’s daughter Charley was
first talking, she asked, “When are we going
to the big house?” The name stuck and the
Arias family refers to their getaway home as
The Big House.
The couple has hosted family and friends
for weekend retreats and there is no shortage
of entertainment options. The pub room has
a pool table and kegerator that Arias stocks
with the favorite beer of whomever he is
hosting for the weekend. Where else can you
sip a cold one while playing pool and looking
at the ocean?
Six guests can chill in the plush chairs in
the downstairs theater room with big screen
TV. Fishing in either the Atlantic Ocean or Indian
River is also an option. Sidewalks offer
bicycle riding for miles both north and south
along State Road A1A. And there is always
the very private beach for long walks.
The pool, spa and sunrise deck offer the
ocean views without the sand. The summer
kitchen with fireplace and artisan cooker is
ideal for cookouts. The Big House is one of
three completed in the 45-lot subdivision. It
has 6,804 square feet under air conditioning
and a total of 10,233.
