                                  Year Purchased: 2004

                                  About the owner: Larry is a retired State Licensed General Contractor and Becky is an active Alabama Realtor, who have been Married for over 40 years with 5 adult Children and 7 Grandchildren. We live a short distance from our Lake houses and are on call anytime for our guests.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Guntersville:
                                  We designed and built both of our lake houses with our large Family in mind. We are delighted to share them with you and your group. You will surely find how wonderfully accommodating these floor plans can be especially for large groups of familiar or unfamiliar people. Although the yard is fairly level, If you have step issues, remember you can drive your vehicle from the front door to the waters edge.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  This location is marvelous. Wyeth is a coveted area of Lake Guntersville. Homes in this neighborhood are top of the market with mostly permanent residents. Yet this property is in a protected mountain cove with a boat loading ramp, dock, and natural sand bar for swimming, making it especially great for children and the paddle boats. You will be just 5 minutes from downtown Guntersville to include restaurants and grocery stores.
