                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: We fell in Love with Destin many years ago, we started coming here for business and decided to work here in the real estate industry. We brought our children from the time they were babies and would stay for the entire summer enjoying all that Destin has to offer. We have had tons of family and friends over the years. We bought this home after hurricane opal and have renovated every inch of it. Now our children are in college and we don't utilize this house the way we did for many years, so we decided to share this great home with some other families to allow them to have some great Destin vacations and memories as we have!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Destin is a great vacation destination, we love the fishing and boating, playing at crab island and watching the dolphins play. Everytime I go to the beach and see this gorgeous green water with the sparkling sugar sand the beauty of it overwhelms me. This home is really spectacular with the short walk to the beach and the conveineince of having your water vessel at your disposal anytime you feel like jumping onboard! Here you also have the peacefulness of a quiet neighborhood to enjoy a good book or just watching the boats,fish and other wildlife swim or fly by! You really have the best of both worlds, something for everyone in one location!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is an amazing home with over 3600 square feet of living space and 2000 square feet of decking, which 600 feet of the deck is enclosed, a nice yard beautfully lanscaped, with large bedrooms and spacious family areas. It is recently renovated and is very clean and updated. The large covered deck is very unique and is a great party room! It has a bar, cooktop and seating overlooking the canal right on this deck.
