My wife's job brought us overseas 3 years ago and we have decided to stay an additional 2 years so our children can both graduate from the school they are attending. We purchased this property to utilise as a winter home when we move back to the states. With that in mind we have furnished the house with quality furniture and furnishing that will still be in good condition when we are able to utilize it.

                              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                              We looked all over Florida for a place that had easy access to the Gulf. We found less expensive properties but chose this place as it is very peaceful and the sunsets are incredible. Did we mention we can get to the Gulf of Mexico in less then 15 minutes via boat?

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              First impression, when entering the house, is 'Wow'. All the finishes are of high quality and the decor is very elegant and comfortable. Did we mention sunsets? Sunsets are beautiful from all the main rooms in the house. The retreat area in the master is an unbelievable place to watch the sunsets. While in the kitchen you still are involved with people in all areas of the house as well as outside on the lanai and pool area due to the pass through bar.
