Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Ken and I met in 2000. He is a practicing dentist and a master woodworker. I was a former RN but was running a sign shop when he walked through my door. Don't know if it was the tool belt or the fact that I owned my own panel saw but he asked and I said 'yes'. We've been building Two Hawk Hammock ever since.

Why the Owner Chose Gainesville:
We bought the property in 2001, partly because it was next to Devil's Den which we already had an interest in; was the right amount of acreage; and partly because it is the home of a beautiful Live Oak Tree that I fell in love with. This tree's presence spoke to me of longevity, stability, shelter, and endurance. Just what I was looking for in a new home. So, this wonderful old tree created a hammock and a couple hawks seemed to like it as much as we did and the name, 'Two Hawk Hammock', just sort of popped out of our mouths at the same time and we never questioned why. The tree has many far reaching limbs that welcome all sorts of interesting folks. I hope you will be one of them. Come visit the wood shop; take a hand crafted soap class; go for a trail ride; or just sit and watch the emus and horses wander in the pasture.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Two Hawk Hammock is next door to Devil's Den Springs which is a prehistoric sink hole and world famous scuba diving resort. Located between Gainesville and Ocala. Approximately 1 1/2 hours from Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tampa. Very little traffic with unique antique shopping and easy access to groceries, gas, and drugstore.
