                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Steven and Ashley Vitale are raising a family of 7 children in Stuart Florida where Steven works as a real estate attorney and runs Downtown Stuart's only Boutique Hotel, The Old Colorado Inn. Steven has enjoyed renovating this charming collection of historic structures in Downtown Stuart and he loves providing genuine hospitality to guests at the Inn.

                      Why the Owner Chose Stuart:
                      Historic Charm with modern conveniences in the heart of beautiful Downtown Stuart on the St. Lucie River.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      I love the original Florida Heart Pine flooring in these buildings and I love the views of the St. Lucie River from our porch/sundeck located in the front of the main hotel buildings and the view of the river from the front porch of our historic guest house, 'The Blue House.' I also love strolling the Riverwalk and watching sailboats pass and the mullet jump. I also love the smells of the delicious food being prepared by the restaurants on our premises while sitting outside viewing our beautiful Florida Sunsets.
