              Year Purchased: 2010

              About: My wife and I live in Kalispell, Montana where I work as a physician. Our passions are for family and friends, flying, gardening, good wine and food, music and art. We rehabilitate eagles in our back yard.

              Why Clearwater:
              We have children and grandchildren nearby, so we bought and furnished this home with family in mind. We love this area for the sunshine, warm weather and its closeness to the water. The cultural and recreational opportunities are endless with something for everyone nearby. Big name sports and entertainment venues abound. Ten Major league Baseball teams hold spring training camps within minutes of the house. World class golf and tennis are available year around. Amazing deep-sea fishing, boating, shell hunting are easily accessible. Luxury cruise boats leave from nearby Tampa. Also, there are plenty of private airports and fantastic recreational flying destinations. There are miles of scenic bike/jogging trails at hand. Wonderful restaurants, theatres, grocery stores and shopping are just down the street.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy that, while we are close to all the fun and recreational activities, our vacation home is in a very nice, quiet, private neighborhood that lets us feel the tranquility and relaxation of truly being 'at home.' It's so relaxing to sit on the lanai, or be taking a swim in the pool, while watching a tropical sunset...with no crowds or hustle. Our home has a large backyard that is ideal for badminton, croquet or horseshoes. I like to sit on the porch swing and look down the long open greenbelt behind the house. We furnished the home for ourselves, with brand new, top of the line mattresses and linens. I love to cook and just bought a new infrared gas grill that takes barbeque to a new level. Colorful art by Warhol, Lichtenstein, Van Gogh and LeWitt lend fun and atmosphere.
