Car: Necessary

Known as the "Sailfish Capital of the World," the Atlantic Coast city of Stuart is located along Florida’s renowned Treasure Coast, north of Palm Beach and south of Vero Beach. Along with fishing and other water-intensive pleasures, Stuart is famed for its historic and pedestrian-friendly downtown. The Stuart Green Market and Live Music event is held every Sunday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. near City Hall. And don’t miss the Stuart Heritage Museum and Road to Victory Military Museum. With a fine assortment of dining options and recreational opportunities.

We are located along one of the most desirable waterfront locations in Stuart; virtually across the street from the golf course, on the fishing and boating "wide water" of the St Lucie River and only a short drive to the Ocean Beaches or the quaint village of Stuart. You can be on the ocean in a short 10-minute boat ride or cruise over to the Manatee Pocket or downtown Stuart and tie-up for lunch or dinner. The Elliot Museum is close by and Oceanographic Institute is across the street from that.

Fishing and recreational boating is excellent right out the back door that leads to the old concrete dock and the beautiful St. Lucie River. Fishing right off the dock is excellent. We also have an undisturbed view across the wide river towards green Sewell's Point.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Robert grew-up outside of Chicago and after a 30-year career in the software industry he became a successful entrepreneur and is now semi-retired. He currently works as an artist/painter while in Florida and works on their New Hampshire farm in the summer. Silvana was born and raised in Argentina and is a full-time Spanish Translator, subtitles movies and teaches Spanish and English. We have been splitting our time between the Hooker Cove Cottage and our farm in New Hampshire and would now like to make our wonderful cottage available during the summer, while we are away, and perhaps do some travelling during the winter.

Why the Owner Chose Stuart, FL, USA:
This old cottage was one of the first properties developed along the St Lucie River in Stuart in 1945. It's built like a tank and has lived through many hurricanes over the years. It was in desperate need of renovation so we took-on that task, hired a well-know local architect and interior designer to help us make our dream cottage a reality. The location is perfect; centrally located on the water, minutes from the village and the ocean on the widest part of Hooker Cove which is the 1st significant cove on the river off the ocean. It is often used by ocean-going pleasure boaters as a safe overnight mooring location. The yard is fantastic with approximately 1/2 acre fenced so we have plenty of room for our two Border Collies. There is also a huge garage that we may convert the upper half into an art studio one day. Oh...and the fishing is the best in the area, primarily because of the old concrete dock and oyster beds that have grown over the years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We really enjoy the unobstructed view of the cove and the privacy that such a large lot provides. The location can't be beat: Right on the water, easy ocean and intercoastal access, minutes to village or the beach, excellent public golf course is right across the street. You can walk to Fresh Market or over the bridge to Sewell's Point. It's close to perfect.
