                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: My wife and I have been living in the USA and Europe for the last 30 years. We still try to get home to Florida for a few months each year. We had the house built to our specifications in 2001 and are still looking to make it bigger to fit the kids and grandkids when they descend on us. My wife loves the rural location with the added convenience of the shopping malls close by. Myself, I look forward to the golf and fishing.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lemon Bay:
                      This was our dream home close to the beaches of Manasota Key in a semi rural position with complete privacy and you know what - the weather's pretty nice too!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      The wildlife outside our lanai is just wonderful. I even saw a Florida Panther once (but then I guess I was very lucky). Beautiful birds.
