                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: We built the house in 1999, when Gulfview Heights was a sleepy little area with sea shell roads. We fell in love with the area. It had the Old Florida beach quality. Civilazation has come to us with all it's conveniences, at no detrement to the area. It is still quaint, yet all the amenities youn could want are within walking distance.

                      Why the Owner Chose Gulfview Heights:
                      This house is quiet and private. There are no houses on either side of us. The Gulfview beach access is wonderfully private and yet it has public restrooms, a pavillion with barbecue grills and tables, the beach is extremely wide and private. We vacationed as a family for several years, and finally decided to build.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Sitting out on the decks in the evening, you can hear the ocean Such a calming sound. And the stars on a clear night, which is almost every night, are breathtaking!! You too will fall in love with the house and area. It's private and quiet. If serenity is your thing, you'll love it here.
