About the owner: Growing up in Madison, Wisconsin and spending twenty six years in Missoula, Montana, I am a lover of the outdoors, a forester, small businessman and a traveler. My wife is from Missoula, Montana and our two wonderful children grew up there too. As you could imagine, having spent so much time up north, our travel curiosities always seem to lead us south. My wife and I, and kids at times, have traveled to central America, South America, Mexico and the Caribbean. We enjoy the 'better attitudes that come with southern latitudes,' and we enjoy trying out our Spanish when we can.
Why the Owner Chose Englewood: I have had family in Florida for over thirty years, the Englewood area in particular, and my wife and I have found the area to be full of very friendly people, it is plain and simply gorgeous, and we love the water that is all around. The wining and dining in Englewood is top notch as well. We have found that Englewood has that village feel, unlike more crowded, built up beach areas. We love the three story rule too, it just looks and feels like a fishing, beach village in Englewood. With more busyness to the north and south of Englewood, we call it the 'sweet spot.' We had always wanted a southern getaway and we feel we couldn't have done better.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have enjoyed hanging out at the Englewood Central Hideaway as much as we have enjoyed exploring the area. It is so private and relaxing, we literally spend hours sometimes enjoying the lanai, sundbathing and bird watching. Not to mention the little lizards and frogs outside are amazingly entertaining as well. The pond next door to the house is so fun to watch as well. Giant birds are constantly fishing, neighborhood kids catch bass out of it and it reflects the light so beautifully as well. We love how very few cars pass by as the house is not on a thoroughfare and the neighbors across the street are wonderfully friendly. My wife and I love enjoying the trees on the property too, from the shady live oak, to the swaying palms--they're a beautiful frame for the sunsets out the back of the lanai. We also love how the living area, kitchen and dining area just flow out to the lanai. The house itself just has a really nice tropical Florida feel, but it does have a modern feel. We hope you will enjoy the house and property as much as we have, we hope to more also!
