About the owner: From Germany. Lived in Lanark since 1992.
Why the Owner Chose Carrabelle: We traveled through here by motorhome and liked the beautiful, natural, quiet forgotten coast. We first purchased a small home then built this home in 2005 as our primary residence. Family additions required us to put this beautiful house on the rental market.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Watching dolphins, cranes, birds, pelicans and mullet jump. The sunrise and sunsets here are so beautiful and peaceful. Also, fishing off our private dock, boating, kayaking, spending the day at Dog Island are very nice benefits of this home and area. The boat launch at Lanark is only one minute away.
