                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We live in Atlanta but love the Gulf of Mexico, having brought our children there every summer for the past twenty years. Fishing and boating have been family activities that we have enjoyed together. Originally from NC and upstate NY, we love the tropical weather of south Florida.

                      Why the Owner Chose Englewood:
                      We began seaching south Florida for a potential retirement home and fell in love with the laid-back atmosphere of the Englewood area. Although actual retirement is several years away, we have enjoyed boating and fishing every chance we get. The bird watching is spectacular, and we love to see the manatee and dolphin right by our dock. We can't wait to share our home with you.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Englewood Isles community is beautifully maintained, with friendly neighbors and wonderful views. Being close to the larger cities of Sarasota and Tampa, as well as the attactions of Orlando nearby, makes this area the perfect spot to relax, and yet enjoy the dining and culture available nearby. Having the pool right outside the master bedroom makes early morning and late evening dips a daily pleasure.
