Why the Owner Chose Point of Rocks:
I come from a family with close ties to Southwest Florida and throughout my early years visited relatives in the area every summer while I was in school. On my 16th birthday, still living in New York but spending the summer in Florida I announced that I would move to Florida when I completed my studies. 3 months after taking my degree at Life College I moved to Sarasota with my new wife and started our family here. I purchased the beach house from old friends, he a retired World War 11 United States Navy Captain and she a writer. I could think of no better place to raise our children and to spend my life, it has been a dream. Living on this barrier Island...Siesta Key... is wonderful.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house sits on sandy seaside bluff, on a dead end street, at the end of a wooded 300 foot driveway, a mere 30 feet from the sea. The elevation is without parallel, the ground floor elevation is 14 feet above sea level which affords it a one of a kind perspective on seaside living. The property is very private, truly a one of a kind tropical paradise.
