                      About the owner: Hello, we are a native Ohio family that has been vacationing in Florida for more than 20 years. After visiting many areas on both coasts, we fell in love with Venice Island - its charming town, restaurants and theater as well as the beautiful beaches. We love our new home and you will too! We just purchased this home in Fall 2012 and have made many upgrades.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      Looking for a large home with a private, heated pool? Want to be a short walk from a lovely small town with great restaurants, shops, coffee and wine bars? Want to leave your car in the garage and take a short bike ride to the beach? Look no further! This home has it all! The home was completely updated in Fall 2012 - fresh paint, new carpet throughout, ALL new furnishings, all new bedding, HVAC system and pool surfacing!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This home was designed by a famous, local architect Ruth Richmond. It has many unique features for the era including many angled rooms, split floor plan with 2 bedrooms with bath on one side of the home and the master on the other.
