              About: We're both from the South. I'm from Florida, he's from Alabama. We love Florida's beaches and enjoy having pleasant weather all year-round. With careers in the military and foreign service, this home allows us to put down roots in a part of town that has it all: old Florida charm, downtown access to restaurants, shops, and culture, & proximity to the beach!

              Why Gillespie Park:
              This home is a gem in a neighborhood of similarly restored historic houses affectionately known as the Painted Ladies of Gillespie Park! We loved the care and positive energy that the previous owners brought to the house and hope to continue the tradition. By inviting guests to enjoy the house, we hope the home will continue to be filled with love even during the times we're unable to enjoy it ourselves.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Amazing downtown location. Beautifully-cared for home. Historic Florida charm. Modern amenities include central air-conditioning, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and more.
