Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

Why the Owner Chose Old Florida Beach (Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA):
We never had any intention of purchasing property in Florida - or of spending much time here. And then, after a conference nearby, we came for a weekend and fell in love with Santa Rosa Beach....We truly feel that it is our Paradise. We have been to many beaches in the US and elsewhere and have not been anyplace that compares to our beautiful beach!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We built our home so that it serves well for full time living (it is our primary home) and also is comfortable for the large groups that generally gather for a week's beach vacation. The open great room (living, dining, kitchen) comfortably holds large groups and yet is cozy for those times when just my husband and I are here. We have large covered porches with comfortable wicker furniture for outside living, and open decks for enjoying the sun at other times.
