Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I live in Gainesville with our four children and love our weekends at our river house. We are happy to be able to let other families enjoy this wonderful home.

Why the Owner Chose Amelia City:
We absolutely love the beautiful untouched beaches. We love being able to jump in our boat and head to the Ocean as well as the intercoastal or up the river. The boys constantly fish off the dock and play in the sand while our daughter likes to hang out by the pool. There is enough space for all our family (several generations) to get together and we always have requests from friends to have pool parties and BBQ's!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watching huge ships cruise by, big pool, great views from the decks, plents for everyone to do with the pool table, multiple family rooms, fabulous kitchen, great fishing, close to shopping and beaches...
