Other Hutchinson Island (N & S) Properties house description

Ft. Pierce is known by the locals as a small drinking town with a fishing problem. I would call it the first non-plastic beach north of Miami. If you want fancy restaurants and exotic cars, this isn’t the place for you. If you want to slow down to island time, see the sun rise on the ocean and set on the bay, sit on a secluded beach, and watch live bands at outdoor bars every night, this is the place for you.
My Wife and I traveled up and down the coast of Florida looking for the place we would call our beach for the past few years. We drove into Ft. Pierce for the first time in August, saw the duplex, and went to Archie’s Seabreeze bar for dinner, and made the instant decision this was the beach for us.

Our house is not ocean front, but there are no houses between us and the beach, just two empty lots. We purchased it on November 15th and are in the middle of remodeling it, so our pictures are showing the work in progress. We allow small dogs and are fencing in the yard in January. There is a small temporary fence currently in place.

The unit has off street parking and has many brand new appliances including a front load washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave and disposal. The stove and fridge are only a few years old. We have fenced in the yard, replaced the windows so its cool and quiet, and upgraded the full bath. We’ve added an outdoor private shower. There are two bicycles to ride. We have 7 beach chairs, three beach umbrellas and two beach dollies.

Our favorite spot is on the screen porch, where you can hear the waves crashing on the beach all day and night. You can open up the sliding glass door in the master bedroom and let the waves put you to sleep. The neighborhood has its own private beach park and beach access.

The duplex is directly on A1A which is a lightly traveled two lane, but very wide boulevard with large sidewalks and marked bike paths on each side. Across the Street is Jaycee Park. It has lots of open space, three public boat ramps, a huge playground, two tennis courts a basketball court, and the best sunset over the bay in Ft. Pierce.

On the island, there are lots of great bars and restaurants, most with large outdoor seating and live entertainment. Most are dog friendly. Just across the bridge, is downtown Ft. Pierce. It’s a quaint clean town with the most fabulous farmers market on the river front every Saturday. Golf and Tennis are readily available. Ft. Pierce is known for its fishing, and scuba diving locations off the coast.

We are looking for a tenant who will treasure this location as much as we do. Please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in renting.

Sincerely,
Tom & Laurie Schaaf
