                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: After selling our business in Atlanta we moved to the lake in 1997, where we lived until moving to Destin, Florida in 2009. We have experienced some of the best times of our lives in this home. Our 4 children, 7 grandchildren and extended families have loved having a place large enough to all congregate comfortably and enjoy the fabulous amenities this property offers. From a very young age, our grandchildren have been swimming, skiing, tubing, fishing, jumping off the dock, riding their bikes, scooters and skateboards in the large circular driveway, shooting baskets, playing volleyball and much, much more. We have built memories here that will never be forgotten. It is our sincere hope that your stay in our home will produce unforgettable memories and special times that will last a lifetime!
