                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: My husband and I grew up in Cincinnati Ohio and still live in the historic neighborhood called Glendale. We love the trains , historical houses and winding sidewalks that curve throughout the area. (1855 the village was founded and horse an buggy was the mode of travel back at that time) Our two children will both graduate this year 2013 one from HS and the other from college, we will be emptynesters!. I am an artist and many of my paintings are throughout the house. My husband is a RE Broker in FL and OH. We have real estate licenses in both states.

                      Why the Owner Chose Little Hickory Shores:
                      We love the area because of the parks that keep the beaches beautiful and clean.... Barefoot Beach Park and Wiggins Pass Park are our favorites. The house is close to both. Having the four bedrooms allows us to invite friends to join us for the kids and/or our friends to stay with us and have privacy. The pool is large and big enough to do laps... the canal allows for boat access to the Gulf. We love the house and the area. Our neighbors are kind, quiet and keep an eye on the house while we are away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The neighborhood is great for riding your bike up and down the streets or walking to the Royal Scoop for ice cream. You can walk to the restaurants and/or jump on the shuttle on Bonita Beach Rd. to go to North Ft. Myers Beach for nightlife activities. The house is L-shaped and surrounds the pool offering everyone access to the outside. The fireplace makes it cozy for Christmas and chilly nights in the winter. It is a relaxing and fun place to stay. Inside it is a cool shade of green which is calming after being at the beach all day in the sun. We love our House!
