About Alan & Nora Burroughs

Drawn to Stuart in 2000 for boat captain school, I fell in love with the small town charm and water activities.

My wife and I are both originally from North Carolina; however, our hearts and home are in Stuart.

Alan & Nora Burroughs purchased this house in 2001

Why Alan & Nora Burroughs chose Stuart

The neighborhood was originally homesteaded as a pineapple plantation along the Saint Lucie River.

The building overlooks the river, a waterfront park and the beautiful Roosevelt Bridge. You will love the walk through historical streets leading to the boardwalk that connects downtown Stuart. The home was built by a Stetson University trained attorney, however his passion was building. Mr. Walton built the home as well as the The Lyric Theatre in 1920.

The original Dade County pine floors were meticulously removed, cleaned and re-installed. The historical features have been preserved.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again, we had the most wonderful, comfortable, memorable stay in your delightful home. LOVED the first floor and the use of the courtyard. It's a real toss up between our stay in the well appointed, yacht-like rooms in "the trees" or the glamorous first floor with the WOW kitchen and seating area. Both are so beautiful and inviting. Every morning we LOVED our trek along the River Walk into town to have coffee and pastries before heading to the beach. Your location could not be better for exploring the magic of "old town" Stuart. The people, the shops and the eateries are so charming.

Beautiful, Well Appointed, Great Location!

We have stayed with Nora and Alan twice now and have enjoyed each visit. Their thoughtful decor and comfortable beds were wonderful, but the breathtaking courtyard and perfect location were the icing on the cake! Their hospitality is unmatched and we will absolutely visit again!

Thank you!
