              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Growing up in the North Eastern part of the U.S., the winters were cold and long, so we decided to purchase a summer home in warm Florida. But not just anywhere in Florida; we fell in love with the Gulf Coast and especially Longboat Key 26 years prior while on vacation with our then, six month old daughter. Since then we made it a priority to some day buy a second home here. In 2006 and three kids later, our dream became a reality when we purchased this beautiful Mediterranean style home on the Gulf.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Sleepy Lagoon:
              We had been dreaming of buying a home in beautiful Longboat Key for years. We returned time and time again on vacation to this area. We enjoyed the beautiful clear, warm sandy beach, the friendly people and the slow pace Island living. In 2006 we immediately fell in love with this beautiful Mediterranean style home. It offered everything we were looking for, a wonderfully comfortable home with a great room with a fireplace to gather, relax and enjoy family time with our three kids. A dock for boating, a pool for evening swimming, hot tub for relaxation and a short walk accross the street to the most beautifully kept sandy beach on the Gulf. It also offered a short driving distance to beautiful St. Armands Circle where we enjoy going out to dinner and shopping. Since then, we have enjoyed bicycling, walking, swiming, jet skiing, boating and priceless moments spend with family.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You will feel home away from home here. Whether you are laying on the day bed outside on the terrace with your children looking at shooting stars in the evenings or just gathering as a family in the great room watching a movie or playing games, you will surely enjoy priceless family time and will create lasting memories for years to come as we have with our now grown three kids who still enjoy spending time here with us.
