                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We've lived here all our lives and one day plan to move into this home ourselves.

                  Why the Owner Chose Port Austin:
                  The house came on the market at the right time and we love the location.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house sits just off of M-25 so you are close to the highway but avoid the noise. Most of the homes on this drive are not rentals so the neighbors are very welcoming and friendly, its a quiet peaceful neighborhood.
