                                The property is extremely private and quiet with only a glimpse of part of the house next door. There are beautiful lawns front and back. The swimming pool is completely fenced and well maintained. When we entered the house we could tell this was a real home with a history of family vacations and special times with good friends. The house is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed spetacluar views of the bay as we had morning coffee on the deck watching the sunrise. When it rained we moved to the screened porch and when it got windy, we moved upstairs and tried to remember how to play pingpong. The large open bayfront with steps from the shore made for easy access to play in the bay. Beach access at the public park is only a few minutes walk down the bike path. A big thank you to the Cooley's for sharing their perfect vacation retreat.

                              Year Purchased: 1984

                              About the owner: I will be 37 in May. I am oldest of two children and the only son. My father bought this house 22 years ago. We recently remodeled parts of it. This house is part of my childhood, and I love it dearly. I have decided to start renting it out now since the family does not use it as much. My sister has moved to Seattle, and my parents are.... lets say more mature. Our family is truly blessed and it shows in all the memories made at the CAPE!

                              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                              I know you will enjoy the house as we have for 22 years, it truly is a gem.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Sits on 5 acres of land with lush landscape! Your private getaway! Own private pool, 500 foot dock and all the FL sun you want. You get to enjoy the best of both worlds. The bay and the gulf!
