Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Owner Paul Berriff is a British Academy award winning television film director, cinematographer and fine art photographer who survived the collapse of the twin towers on 9/11. Paul is responsible for making many multi-award winning international documentaries and is the creator of hit shows such as Animal Planet’s ‘Animal Cops & Animal Precinct’. Paul is married to Hilary. They have two children and two grandchildren. While on film assignments they have lived in many cities across the United States. They also have a 17th century cottage in the English Yorkshire Dales. The Berriff’s have owned property in Sarasota County for over 20 years and have found Venice to be their jewel in the crown.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The house is in a private and very friendly community with superb views. It is located within one mile of the best shops and restaurants in Venice. We have lived on the west coast of Florida for nearly twelve years and just love the beaches and warm sea. Great for long walks or just lazing around on the beach or by the pool.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has amazing large open plan rooms with lots of light. The front of the house overlooks a lake and at the rear the south facing lanai covered pool and patio overlooks a lake with a fantastic 30 foot high fountain. This is a real touch of quiet paradise.
