Stuart: Florida’s Treasure Coast Gem

Stuart, Florida’s sought after tropical location, is perfect for a winter residence or a year-round home. Located on the state’s pristine Treasure Coast, it is the perfect oasis offering a variety of activities in a captivating location.

When asked about what defines Stuart as a prime location, Debra Duvall, real estate agent and partner at Water Pointe Realty Group responds with, “Whether it’s golf, sportfishing, boating or beaching, Stuart has it all. Retiree or family, this really is the perfect location.”

The beautiful beaches and exceptional waterfront lifestyle offer the best of coastal living, and Stuart’s quaint downtown area adds the right dose of charm. The area was recognized as “The Happiest Seaside Town” by Coastal Living Magazine in 2016.

It is Sewall’s Point, a historic and beautiful town within Stuart, that sets this Treasure Coast town apart. Surrounded by miles of waterways, Sewall’s Point’s natural beauty is unmatched. Duvall has been a resident of Florida’s Treasure Coast since 1965, providing her with unparalleled expertise on the area. She is a leader in the marketing and sales of luxury and waterfront residential properties.

Debra enjoys a rewarding lifestyle through involvement with both the properties and the people of the Treasure Coast. She has an extensive record of personal and financial commitment to her community through active service on numerous charitable boards and foundations, educational programs for area youth, and professional and business organizations.

Debra and her husband call the Treasure Coast home for a reason. Numerous cultural and artistic events, appealing environs, land and water activities and an inviting climate all come together to make Florida's Treasure Coast a desirable place to work and play.

Kiehn Realty Company

When Jay Kiehn first moved to the Tampa Bay area from New York 3-1/2 years ago he was in search of an investment property, but instead found a new business idea.

"Unfortunately, I found it difficult to hear back from anyone in a timely fashion when I was searching for an investment property to purchase personally - if I heard back at all," says Kiehn. That experience is what triggered the development of Kiehn Realty Company, a full-service brokerage, vacation rental and property management company in Tampa Bay.

Specializing in luxury real estate and property management, Kiehn Realty Company offers excellent communication between its team of agents and clients, a crucial key to creating the ultimate client experience. Coupled with their expertise in crunching numbers (courtesy of Kiehn's background in accounting and finance), Kiehn Realty Company offers trustworthy information and advice every step of the way. More specifically, Kiehn Realty Company offers a listing fee of only 1% - a noticeable contrast to the normal 2-3% fees seen elsewhere. Additionally, their property management services (encompassing residential and commercial properties) offer a flat 10% fee with no lease up fees, which is typical of industry competitors.

With a primary focus on Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, Kiehn Realty Company also services surrounding areas such as Pasco, Polk and Sarasota/Manatee counties. Additionally, they welcome any clientele seeking industry experts - even outside the state of Florida - with enthusiasm.

“The future for Kiehn Realty Company is expansion,” says Kiehn. “We want to be able to offer our expert service and advice on luxury real estate and property management wherever it’s needed and wherever the market takes us.”

Villa Sena

Sprawling upon two acres of Longboat Key’s exclusive waterfront sits a Mediterranean estate with 150 feet of pristine beach frontage. From this magnificent property, unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico span as far as the eye can see. Resort-like amenities welcome you as you enter this private enclave, where only the highest quality materials and craftsmanship are displayed throughout. Matching dual staircases on the exterior and in the entryway extend like open arms unfolding to invite you in. Inside the Mediterranean masterpiece known as “Villa Sena,” architectural grandeur and Neoclassical finishes create a seamless flow that draw you in. Custom wrought iron railings greet you at the door, leading up the mahogany staircases and continuing on the upper level balconies. Mahogany touches unify the home’s design, highlighted by the two-story mahogany-paneled library modeled after the renowned Biltmore House Library in North Carolina. A peaceful serenity envelopes you within this gated property. Surrounded by dense foliage, the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom main house and 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest house luxuriate in more than 10,000 square feet of solitude. Sugary white sand and sunset views can be enjoyed in your own backyard, complete with outdoor showers, a walk-in pool with underwater seating and an attached spa. Tiered terraces call for grand outdoor entertaining, and arched Clerestory windows and wall-to-wall glass doors offer cohesive indoor/outdoor flow. An HGTV Design Star finalist, Villa Sena resides on a posh private stretch of the 10.8-mile-long key, surrounded by famous neighbors. While secluded in essence, this breathtaking home remains in close proximity to upscale boutique shopping, mouthwatering cuisine, exquisite entertainment and fine arts. Abundant outdoor activities are at your fingertips, including golf, tennis and boating. However, most homeowners escape to this quiet island of direct beachfront multi-million dollar homes for uninhibited relaxation. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a beachfront estate that includes a separate 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest house and unobstructed views of the Gulf with forever sunsets,” says Ryan Ackerman of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.

Homeowners looking for a place to slip away into serenity need not look further than the exclusive and luxurious Villa Sena.
