Owner info

About the owner: I live right next door and have loved the convenience of the location, the neighbors but especially the beautiful view of the creek for the last 14 years. I bought and renovated this house so that my friends and family can visit and enjoy all that Tampa has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Tampa:
The house is fresh and cheerful. The location is convenient to just about everything and is a great jumping off point for exploring west central Florida. But the best part is the liveliness of nature on the creek. Fish, birdwatch, sun, read a book, relax.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location. Its hard to believe you are so close to everything when the view is so unspoiled out the back.
