A quiet house with a large cabin feel, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando and Daytona Beach but is within short driving distances from some of Florida's amazing springs and nature walks! The house boast an amazing view of the Saint John's river, the Lake Monroe Conservation area, and an intriguing historical Indian mound. The house has an unbelievable 130 feet of water front that looks as natural as it was when the house was built in 1949. Every room is flooded with natural light which gives a nature enthusiasts every opportunity to observe the constant flow of Florida's wildlife from wild turkeys, large cranes, gorgeous painted buntings, red cardinals, and of course the Florida alligators! This home is ideal for large families who love the outdoors; however, it also is set up for those who need their own space. Each bedroom is accessed through a large screened in patio which is an idea place to watch the sunrise each morning. The bathrooms are set up jack-and-jill style between two bedrooms on the first floor and two bedrooms on the second floor. There is also a library area, set loft style, above the living room overlooking the amazing view and those below. The library has a small selection of books however there is table seating, a sleeping area, and wireless internet available for those who want to get away but need to still be connected. There is also a large capacity washer and dryer set up in the breezeway for all the clothes that will need to be washed for all your outdoor adventures. The home is within walking distance to an outdoor waterfront restaurant that hosts, on occasion, live music and serves your basic grill style food which includes gator. In addition, the home is adjacent to a full service marina which is great for boating enthusiasts. Being adjacent to the marina renters who bring their own boat, with insurance, have the option to use the Sanford Boat Works facilities which includes their boat ramp, covered docking amenities, fuel dock, and their low key clubhouse that has a well maintained pool and gaming area. The use of the Sanford Boats Works facilities is an additional cost that is paid directly to the Marina. Information can be provided on request. Although the use of the marina is a boon there are public boat ramps not far from the home and more than adequate parking for more than one trailer on the property; therefore, everyone can enjoy the river, Lake Monroe, and even Lake Jesup. In addition, there is room for a family to park their RV without obstructing the view from the home. The possibilities are endless for family fun vacation!

About Annamarie Richter
We are originally from South Florida and by some unusual set of circumstance we landed here in Sanford. We fell in love with history of Sanford and felt as if we were transported back in time thus we wanted to open "Ninovan" (our house in Cheyenne Indian) to other families.
Annamarie Richter purchased this House in 2015
Why Annamarie Richter chose Sanford
The amazing view, the history of the area, the close proximity to the amusement parks and beaches, and the amenities made for a great family get away!
What makes this House unique
The history of the area and what our family can not say enough of is the view!

very charming inside and out. Would definitely recommend.
We were pleased with the property the moment we drove up. The inside was very nice and comfortable and the amenities supplied pretty much everything you would. Close to beaches and attractions but a very quiet, secluded, lovely spot would definitely rent again and highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.
Nice house lovec the antiqueneszof it
It was a great place enough room so family could enjoy alone time also
Our second time staying, still a great place for our family vacation
This was our second time staying here. It remains a perfect choice for our 7 member family. Clean, friendly, safe, and fund for the kids. All the things we look for. As mentioned before, the owners live on the same street which for us is a big advantage.
Glorious Views on the St. Johns River
We loved staying at the St. John's River house. It was a wonderful place for a family gathering and viewing some of Florida's wildlife close up and personal. Most of all I liked to get up early and see the sunrise over the river. If you want to experience "Old Florida" this is the place for you.
This property is the exact definition of old florida....
I can't say enough how beautiful this house and property is...the owners couldn't have been nicer to me and my very large family!!!Cant wait to go back and enjoy again!!
Absolutely amazing house, property, and location!
My extended family and I gathered from different parts of the U.S. to attend my daughter’s college graduation and were fortunate enough to find this lovely property to have our reunion. The home is spacious with a gorgeous and comfortable interior. There are abundant sleep spaces throughout and the screened porches are an added plus. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and eating utensils. My family from afar was grateful for the use of the washer and dryer. Except for the need of an extra bathroom for larger groups, this home has everything! I can’t say enough how lovely the interior decore is, including the built-in bookshelves, the homey fireplace, the comfortable wraparound couch, and the beds. Such lovely decorative touches too with the wall art and corner vases. The area rugs too lend a homey yet refined feeling to the home. This home is a gem! Views are spectacular from inside as well as outside. There is all kinds of wildlife about and a very interesting Native American burial mound literally across the street. I hope we can come back for a visit because this stunning retreat is a rare treasure!
The house is located within a day trip to many attractions. For example: Universal, Disney World, Sea World, Cape Canaveral and many more. The local beaches are within an hours ride from the home too.
