Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I bought this lovely original beach cottage to save it from the wrecker's ball from becoming a block of condos! When I saw the vaulted ceiling and hand-hewn beams, turned staircase and fireplace, I knew I could update it and save the character it possessed. I bought it in August of 2001, a month before 9/11 and made one of the upstairs bedroom a "flag room" to honor this date. I grew up in Tampa and my family spent many years summering in Indian Rocks Beach. I attended high school and college in Florida and currently live 2 mi. from Mi Casa in the town of Belleair Shore where my husband was Mayor for 16 years.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Rocks Beach, FL, USA:
I grew up in Tampa and went to high school and college in Florida. My family vacationed in Indian Rocks Beach in the summertime. I have many favorite memories of time spent on these beaches with my 3 sisters and parties and gatherings with their friends and children. I remember making homemade ice-cream, scalloping in the intercoastal waters and swimming in the gulf and walking and playing on the beaches.
