                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I'm a realtor, and found this property while looking for one for a client. He didn't buy it so I did. It needed rescuing at the time. My husband and I gutted the property and rebuilt it from the inside out. It took a year and a half of Saturdays! But the effort was worth it. I love to rescue things, whether it is a piece of furniture or a house! I like to uncover what others have covered up!

                      Why the Owner Chose Brooksville:
                      Hernando county is so pieceful. They don't call it the Nature Coast for nothing! It has 1/10 of the population of Pinellas county, (where I live) so it is nice to 'get away from it all!' The river varies quite a bit and when we bought it, we had 4 tropical storms that year! It was probably in a flood stage but it was so wide and beautiful! It's probably a good thing I didn't know any of that or I might have been scared off! I'm so glad we bought it!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Sitting on the dock, enjoying the quiet and the birds! The bike trail is what brings most of the folks to my place, but I would rather kayak! My goal is to ride the whole trail! If my guest can do it, I should be able to do it!
