Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are transplanted New Englanders who discovered Gulfport over 20 years ago. After first vacationing here, then becoming snowbirds for a few years, we made it our permanent home in 2010. We love working on home projects, both inside and out, so there is always something changing here.

Why the Owner Chose Gulfport, FL, USA:
We were looking for a unique property with room for guests and spaces for all our hobbies. There are 3 buildings here, a workshop and two homes. The homes were built around 1925 and we have extensively renovated them over the last 5 years. A picture of our home as it looked in 1949 is in the book 'Images of America - Gulfport, Florida'. We love the small-town feel of Gulfport, the friendliness of the people, and the fact that we can walk to just about everything one could need.
