About the owner: I go by Shelby and I am a sagittarius:) Which makes me a lover of travel and adventure . I like to write, read, eat really good food in really nice or really unusual restaurants, and listen to all kinds of music (country, jazz, blues, classical, old rock) I appreciate a finely crafted cocktail and prefer 'top shelf'. My husband and I have 10 horses (mostly quarter horses) and we like to trail ride at the beach and numerous state parks. I am a fan of camping. I would like to work on the 'glamping' thing. I work full time as a realtor in NE Florida. I specialize in St. Augustine which is the oldest city in the US! My work keeps me really busy but I like it as I get to work with buyers and sellers from all different walks of life and I get to see a lot of nice homes. I like renovation projects best as I love to see an old home with good bones get new life. In early life I grew up on 40 acres in Pennsylvania. I moved to S. Florida in the 80's and now live near St. Augustine, FL.
Why the Owner Chose Almond: From the moment I first walked in this home I was enchanted. I loved the huge stone fireplaces, the sprawling outdoor spaces, the amazing lake views, and the icing on the cake was when i first heard and saw the babbling brook running under the deck. I found this place to be so peaceful and I had to make it mine and I also wanted to share it with others.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: Super close to NOC, Lake Fontana, Smokey Mountain Railroad. Super easy access on a paved road with plenty of room to park vehicles and or a boat. Really quiet and peaceful setting but so close to so many wonderful things to do!
