Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a Floridian born and raised right here in St. Petersburg. I grew up in this house. I went from kindergarden to college right here in town. My Dad used to build Airplanes and take off and land from the back yard. It's a very special place to me. More than my home, It's my heritage. I still live here in town I'm a local girl. But when my kids grew up and out of the house. I just didn't need a five bedroom home anymore. So what better thing to do, is to share this land with people who can appreciate the private wild life and lifestyle I call home.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
This is family property. I grew up here. My kids grew up here. It has been passed down from my parents. There is no better place to call home. It's like growing up in a private park. We used to ride our horses down the beach when were kids. It's just a great place to be!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's just that... Unique. Where else can you find 12 acres of pure privacy on the water that can house a full family and more! Less than a mile to the Gulf of Mexico white sandy beaches. Fish or Kayak from the yard. It's just a piece of Heaven. And minutes to Shopping, Restaurants, Golf and more!
