Prospective homebuyers considering making a move to the “Sunshine State,” might be interested in one of its “Fifteen Most Charming Small Towns,” which includes the delightful “Sunrise City” known as Fort Pierce, Florida. While the nation’s southernmost state has much to offer in the way of sunkissed beaches and tourist attractions, the appeal of Fort Pierce goes above and beyond with out-of-this-world natural and artificial reefs, world-class fishing, seemingly endless recreation options, and exceptional options for entertainment, dining, and shopping as well. Fort Pierce is situated on the “Treasure Coast” of St. Lucie County and is one of the oldest cities found on the east coast.
Fort Pierce was initially established as a fishing village in the 1900s, and despite its growth and change, has been able to retain its charming antiquity. The reefs here afford spectacular diving opportunities, and the excellent fishing means waterfront restaurants provide delicious fresh-caught fish. Adding to the intrigue of this city is the 156-mile-long Indian River Lagoon which serves as home to over 4,000 species of fauna and flora and is the country’s largest biologically diverse estuary. The city has a delightful, diverse population and affords equally diverse recreation opportunities, which include everything from kayaking and paddle boarding to horseback riding on one of its gorgeous unspoiled beaches.
The historic, waterfront Downtown Fort Pierce is rich with amenities including Jazz Market, Friday Fest, Bike Night, and Farmers Market. It is also home to the 1,200-seat Sunrise Theatre for the Performing Arts, and a delightful Main Street which was recently named one of the country’s “Most Idyllic and Historic.” With gorgeous Spanish architecture and palm tree-lined streets, this former fishing village is a spectacular place to buy a home. Homes for sale in Fort Pierce include everything from condos and townhomes to single-family homes and waterfront estates. Listing prices for Fort Pierce properties fall in a broad range and depend on the home’s proximity to the water, age, size, and condition. Whether you are looking for an efficient, low-maintenance home, or a large, luxury, waterfront property, you will be pleased with Fort Pierce real estate.
