Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My wife and I have lived in South Florida for most of our adult lives, and both lead busy stressful lives. So a few years back, we decided to find a small house, within three hours' driving distance, on a body of water where we could enjoy each other's company away from the hustle and bustle. I am an attorney and my wife is a real estate broker, with multiple business interests. As we get older, we recognize the value of “together” time spent. That's when we made a conscious decision to steal that time and enjoy it in an environment of natural beauty. We now treasure sharing our discovery and happiness on the River with others. You can only truly know what I speak of if you take the time and get away to the St. Johns River as we have.

Why the Owner Chose River Ridge, FL, USA:
My wife often says that being on the River, whether just floating, fishing or sightseeing, is emotionally, physically and mentally, as well as spiritually, healing. Three years ago my wife and I fell in love with the St. John’s River and quite serendipitously discovered DeLand in Central Florida. After buying a second home on the Hontoon Peninsula and spending many wonderful weekends relaxing on the River, we decided to invest in another residential property to use for our family and friends who would often come to visit. The unspoiled natural beauty of the River has captured many hearts and left us with awesome memories. The abundant wildlife, scenic waterways and uncrowded ambience keep all who visited...returning.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unspoiled natural beauty of the River has captured many hearts and left us with awesome memories. The abundant wildlife, scenic waterways and uncrowded ambience keep all who visit returning. Whether it's fishing, skydiving, hunting, hiking, bird watching, horseback riding, water sports or off-road biking; Deland offers it all. But we warn you, you're about to fall in love with old world Florida like few have had the pleasure to experience. Once smitten, you will count the days to returning to the way life should be; peaceful, relaxing and satisfying. We are sure that once you discover DeLand, with its quaint and friendly downtown, wonderful restaurants and overall charming shops, you too will see why this is the community to spend time in when enjoying the St. Johns River on your memorable retreat.
