Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: I moved from Los Angeles recently and own a day spa in Los Angeles. I have been a business owner for over 12 years and appreciate the value of excellent customer service. I Moved to Tampa to see a childhood sweetheart who I hadn't seen in 3 decades..... We were married this past September(2012) :)

Why Tampa:
This property is in excellent condition and very clean. The location is in a lush, beautiful and quiet neighborhood by the Hillsborough River. When my husband and I first saw this property we instantly fell in love with it, and that was before we walked through the door! As soon as we entered we both felt like we had walked back into our childhoods. I love that people are active in the neighborhood. Whether it's for a jog, strolling the pooch or just taking in the beauty of the surroundings with your sweetheart. It is a great place to get back to and relax after a solid day of adventure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We found the house in the same neighborhood that we had recently purchased our own house in. The classic 'Florida' look caught our eye, and once we were able to get inside? We were hooked. The original doors and casing all meticulously kept. The central location is perfect for everywhere you would want to visit without having to pack-up and move from hotel to hotel. This little house will serve those needs well.
