                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We are an English family who chose this part of Florida,over all the rest that we traveled to over the years. To live and work here is like being on vacation all year!

                  Why the Owner Chose Clearwater:
                  We fell in love with this area in the 80's. It is so perfect for everybody in the family to enjoy, having something for all age groups. The beaches are the best you can get, the number one voted beach in the whole of the USA in Caladesi island is just 5 minutes drive away. It is truly paradise here. You can also walk to restaurants,cafes, shops etc, which is quite rare in Florida. The Jolly Trolly stops close by which takes you south to Clearwater and Dunedin and north to Tarpon Springs

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We started to look for a vacation home along the Gulf coast nearly 20 years ago and had very tough search criteria. We wanted the perfect location to suit every bodies needs, plus a lot more. Not just for families or couples, but for everybody wanting that perfect vacation. In finding this beautiful quaint little town, we found it. After 20 years and buying another 3 homes, all within walking distance of each other. We never thought about buying else where, we had found the perfect location. The area is friendly, safe to walk at night and central to everything
