Property description

This home appeals to outdoor enthusiasts or persons seeking the solitude of a quiet retreat in a casual cozy setting. Fish off the fishing platform (not available as a dock) for large in-season snook or launch a kayak/canoe in the canal for a short paddle to the St. Lucie Inlet Preserve Park. Once there, you have a choice to walk across the boardwalk or continue to paddle the labyrinth of mangrove waterways among dense populations of birds to a pristine ocean beach. There you can cast a line in the ocean, swim, sunbathe, search for protected turtle nests or view the beautiful morning sunrises. For those who are seeking solitude, the home is located on a quiet dead-end street near the end of Horseshoe Point (on Rocky Point) surrounded by native shrubs and palms that give a sense of privacy. The screen-in porch or patio avails itself of prevailing southeasterly breezes where reading a good book can be a joy. If you like to cook, there's a fully equipped kitchen with a new stainless refrigerator that can hold mounds of food and drinks.

The older, comfortable home (1320sq.') , constructed on a quiet canal, was one of the first to be built on the Point by a retired yacht Captain and his wife in 1968. Much of their memorabilia remains in the house, a legacy of their adventures while traveling the Intracoastal Waterway for years. The house has one great room that includes the living/dining/kitchen with bedrooms off the main room. The laundry room/2nd bath is off the kitchen. The twin bedroom has an adjoining full bath. The Queen bedroom has the view of the canal.

Shopping options on US1 and waterfront restaurants on the Manatee Pocket are both within a 10 minute drive. Downtown Stuart, where many eateries, a farmers market and live theater are 20 minutes by car. Beautiful beaches and many public golf courses are within 20 minutes. PBI (Palm Beach International airport) is a 45 minute drive, Ft. Lauderdale 1 1/2 hours, Miami 2 hours, Kennedy Space Center 1 1/2 hours, and Orlando 2 hours.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: As a retired educator, I now travel in pursuit of finding good waters to fish. I'm a member of many local and international fly fishing clubs. I've traveled extensively to South America and New Zealand in pursuit of fish as well as widely across the United States. I live in the wine country of Central California and love to cook.

Why the Owner Chose Stuart:
The home was originally built as a retirement home by my parents after my step-father's career as a yacht captain came to a close. They were one of the first to develop their property on the man-made canal that made it convenient to dock their boat without barriers to the inlet. The property continues share quarters with a 38' sailboat on the main dock.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A short walk down the street will provide an unobstructed view of the Indian River as well as the site of the entry to the backwaters of the St. Lucie Inlet Preserve. We receive a daily SE breeze that cools during the summer months. . Convenient shopping and entertainment are nearby. Restaurants with good reviews abound on the Manatee Pocket.
