Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: The house was initially built by my grandparents who had lived in Tallahassee since the 1940s. We are all FSU Seminoles and call Tallahassee home.

Why the Owner Chose Live Oak Island:
This property has been in our family since 1964. We have many wonderful memories exploring the wildlife and playing in the water. Check out the pictures of the view from our deck. There is truly something for everyone no matter the age.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our favorite experience is sitting on the upper deck with our cold beverages; watching the sun set while the birds soar and the the porpoises feed.
