Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I became acquainted with Southwest Florida when my aunts, uncle, grandmother and father all began vacationing in the Fort Myers area. Remembering the warmth, the light and the beach, I dreamed of one day owning something in the south to get away to during freezing New England winters. In 2010, when my father passed away, he left me a small nest egg and I knew the time was right for my partner and I to put it into a small home in Naples. Because I am still teaching and working full time on Cape Cod, and my partner is working full time building beautiful sailboats, our ability to get away right now is limited, and we can share this wonderful place with others as a rental. This home is a tribute to my Dad who taught me the value of owning real estate, and the inestimable value of relaxing.
Why the Owner Chose Naples Park: I knew that I wanted to own a home in a modest neighborhood, and be able to stroll to the beach and walk or bike ride to the Turtle Club or Baleen restaurant on Vanderbilt Beach. To find such a well cared for place in the 500 block on one of the best streets in Naples Park (98th St), well - the writing was on the wall!
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow: The neighborhood is quiet, residential, safe, beautiful, and the neighbors are mostly year round and lovely. Although this location is serene, you are five minutes away from everything you need - shops, restaurants, beach, services, cinema, bike shop, the Mercato, you name it.
