Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Our family spent many summers vacationing at the beach. Kids grew up loving the water and our daughter got engaged at this home during a family vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Well designed for family activities and an escape for relaxation and enjoyment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beachfront property on a private street (one entrance for owners and guests only) which limits traffic making it a safe place for kids to play. Great for family get-a-ways especially with two master bedroom suites.
