Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Becky and I had our first date on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico 35 years ago. We have always returned to the Florida Panhandle for vacations. With my family in Mississippi, we finally decided to buy a beach house between Atlanta and Jackson. We have loved the Gulf Shores area and are spending more time here as retirement draws near. Currently, I practice law in Cumming, Georgia (just north of Atlanta) with my son, Parker. All of our grown children love coming to the beach and we are grandparents of twins and another granddaughter.

Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
The beach in this area is much more secluded than areas closer to Gulf Shores. We have some restaurants nearby but it is only a 20 minute drive into town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The spacious double decks with beautiful beach views are what most people love about our home. The upstairs view is breathtaking, especially at sunrise and sunset. Dolphins come by regularly and are fun to watch. The beach is secluded because there are no high rise condominiums, only houses and duplexes. The water is clear and the bottom is easily seen for a long way out in the water.
