Monterey Yacht and Country Club in Stuart Florida
If you’re considering Florida as a place to retire you will find that Martin County has many great neighborhoods and a healthy supply of retirement communities.
Let’s take a sneak peek at the Monterey Yacht and Country Club located in beautiful Stuart Florida. If you’re not familiar with Stuart, its located on the east coast of Florida in a region known as the Treasure Coast. Many people may have written this little neighborhood off as an old dated community, but if you take a closer look, you’ll find this hidden gem is just waiting to be discovered.
While these condos were built in the mid-70’s, many of the units have been updated with modern amenities making them an excellent choice for people on a fixed income.
Just to be clear, this is an age restricted community, so you need to be at least 55 years of age to purchase in the Monterey Yacht & Country Club, but you know, 55 is the new 30! Condos range from 1 and 2-bedroom units and are approximately 1000 square feet in size. The community is nicely manicured with mature trees providing ample shade. The condo fees are reasonable in the mid-$400 range and they include the following:
Hot Water / Trash Removal
Common Area Maintenance
All Lawn Care
All Recreation Facilities
If you’re not swimming in the over sized pool in this neighborhood or playing golf, you can head over to the waterfront clubhouse. The Monterey Yacht and Country Club also has a second clubhouse located right on the river. Residents can enjoy the many planned activities and seasonal parties while gazing at the beautiful St. Lucie River. The clubhouse also features a day dock so you can tie up your boat, if you have one, or cast a line to fish.
This is truly a retirement community and postured for people on fixed incomes. As of 2017 units range from $55,000 to $90,000 depending on how the unit was appointed. While these condos may be modestly priced they have a great deal to offer the homeowner. I think this community is perfect for people who like to travel or want little in the way of maintenance.
