With sunshine nearly every day of the year, this home is a FAMILY, LOVER, REUNION, WEDDING or just relaxing getaway with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a large bonus area.

This is our home, we built it and, we furnished it for ourselves.

Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: Hi I'm Jeff. They say I should run the local chamber of commerce, I know this area so well and love it so much. I built this house in 1987. I have had literally hundreds of people over the years say that it is the most beautiful and relaxing setting they've experienced. We lucked out! When I built, what is now known as the Pinellas Bike Trail was an active rail-road that woke us at 4am! But we were young and near the water and still loved it. The area only got better and better. Our family now does not need all the space and I can't make myself sell it. PLUS I still need to keep the boat on the dock behind it! My sons Max and Jackson are happy to tell your kids what to do around here.
Why the Owner Chose Palm Harbor, FL, USA:
The house and it's view itself makes your stress disappear and your mood elevate but the owner and family really care....you are literally a guest in their own home! Feels very warm, relaxed and not uptight. Go ahead and put your feet on the coffee table.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has the most relaxed, laid back feel to it and the most beautiful pool in town. It is walking distance to the 70 mile long bike, roller blade and running trail. No streets to cross getting to it and a few blocks from Pop Stansell Park with a beautiful fishing pier, kids play area and picnic shelters.
