About Brian McGonagill
My wife and I live in Kalispell, Montana where I work as a physician. Our passions are for family and friends, flying, gardening, good wine and food, music and art. We rehabilitate eagles in our back yard.
Brian McGonagill purchased this house in 2010
Why Brian McGonagill chose Palm Harbor
We have children and grandchildren nearby, so we bought and furnished this home with family in mind.
We love this area for the sunshine, warm weather and its closeness to the water. The cultural and recreational opportunities are endless with something for everyone nearby.
Big name sports and entertainment venues abound. Ten Major league Baseball teams hold spring training camps within minutes of the house.
World class golf and tennis are available year around.
Amazing deep-sea fishing, boating, shell hunting are easily accessible.
Luxury cruise boats leave from nearby Tampa. Also, there are plenty of private airports and fantastic recreational flying destinations.
There are miles of scenic bike/jogging trails at hand.
Wonderful restaurants, theatres, grocery stores and shopping are just down the street.
What makes this house unique
We enjoy that, while we are close to all the fun and recreational activities, our vacation home is in a very nice, quiet, private neighborhood that lets us feel the tranquility and relaxation of truly being 'at home.' It's so relaxing to sit on the lanai, or be taking a swim in the pool, while watching a tropical sunset...with no crowds or hustle. Our home has a large backyard that is ideal for badminton, croquet or horseshoes. I like to sit on the porch swing and look down the long open greenbelt behind the house.
We furnished the home for ourselves, with brand new, top of the line mattresses and linens. I love to cook and just bought a new infrared gas grill that takes barbeque to a new level.
Colorful art by Warhol, Lichtenstein, Van Gogh and LeWitt lend fun and atmosphere.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Had a wonderful time at your lovely home. It seemed there was nothing you forgot to make our stay comfortable. Our little ones loved the library of movies and managed to swim in the pool a lot. We were on the go while here and attended New Years eve and day events in St. Petersburg. We also went to the aquarium in Tampa. For plane enthusiasts, don't miss the Fantasy of Flight in Polk City. We are now headed back to Missouri, but wish we could stay here in Florida. Thanks for everything!
