About Michael Bobzien
My dream was to build a futuristic indestructible earth friendly home. The dream was acted on in 1995 and completed in 1998. The home uses half the energy of a conventional home of similar size. The interior space is open and inviting. The surrounding area has been managed in a manner keeping the natural and pristine qualities in tact.
Michael Bobzien purchased this house in 1996
Why Michael Bobzien chose Cape San Blas
The location of this home is the most ideal among all Cape San Blas Properties. The bay access is the deepest with a dock. The beach access park is directly across the street with a large state property park that goes some 2000 feet making the beach very secluded. The water is clear and pristine with plenty of wildlife. If you want to be surrounded by natural beauty and solitude then this is the best choice and still be able to visit all the modern restaurants, stores and beaches.
What makes this house unique
Most unique benefit of vacationing at Bayrock is the opportunity to spot an eagle, see a bobcat walk by, go shark fishing, see porpoises at the beach, catch tarpin in the bay or do nothing at all. The Cape is a sanctuary for wildlife.
