About Jacquelyn Imhoff
We are a professional couple employed as administrators for a not-for-profit Christian university in western Kentucky. Our daughter and her family live in Florida so we travel there for visits and purchased this home for our own personal use. Since our travels are limited by our work, we decided to share our wonderful home in paradise with you.
Jacquelyn Imhoff purchased this house in 2012
Why Jacquelyn Imhoff chose Punta Gorda
This property is a respite from our busy lives. We love to come and relax, kayak in the mangroves, fish off our banks, swim in our pool, or boat to downtown Punta Gorda. We always reluctantly leave yet totally refreshed and ready to return to work.
What makes this house unique
We purchased this home because of its beautiful serene setting, spacious open floor plan with expansive water views, lovely pool area overlooking the river, and its total privacy. Because the water is brackish, you can watch fresh and salt water marine life depending on the tides, including dolphins and manatees right from the house or pool area. The home feels like it is on a private island, yet it is so convenient to everything!
