Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are Nancy & Peter Bauer. We live in Marietta, Georgia. Peter is a chiropractor and real estate investor. Nancy works in public relations/marketing communications. We live a healthy and active life and love to spend time with family, friends and traveling.

Why the Owner Chose WaterSound Beach:
There are many reasons we chose to build our vacation home at WaterSound. Aside from the great beaches, weather, restaurants, and 30A culture, the area we are in is like living in a nature preserve, very peaceful and with lots of open space.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Time spent at our house is time enjoying the beauty and comfort of the house itself, great walks in nature, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, great meals cooked at home or in the many local restaurants, and meeting interesting people from all over.
