My name is Chris Hicklin. I was born in Kansas City, Missouri and was raised in New York State. I attended Kennesaw University and Emery University in Atlanta. I Graduated Cum Laude from Life University in Marietta Georgia and have been a practicing full time practicing Chiropractor at 3220 Clark Road, Sarasota, Florida since 1981. I have two wonderful children, a son and daughter, both grown and out on their own. I purchased this home in 1978 and have enjoyed all of the fine people I have met through their vacations here. I am a photographer as well, a small portion of my work can be seen at http://chicklinphotography.com/index.html. I have a cat named Arizona who roams the property and keeps an eye on things. I live next door to the beach house and have enjoyed sharing this property with an amazing group of people from corporate COE's to airline pilots to fine artists to international diplomats...just about every walk of life imaginable. The wonderful relationships I have made through the sharing of this unique property has enrichened our lives. Life by the Gulf of Mexico on Siesta Key is amazing... just breathtaking, please come enjoy this old house and see for yourself.
I come from a family with close ties to Southwest Florida and throughout my early years visited relatives in the area every summer while I was in school. On my 16th birthday, still living in New York but spending the summer in Florida I announced that I would move to Florida when I completed my studies. 3 months after taking my degree at Life College I moved to Sarasota with my new wife and started our family here. I purchased the beach house from old friends, he a retired World War 11 United States Navy Captain and she a writer. I could think of no better place to raise our children and to spend my life, it has been a dream. Living on this barrier Island...Siesta Key... is wonderful.
The house sits on sandy seaside bluff, on a dead end street, at the end of a wooded 300 foot driveway, a mere 50 feet from the sea. The elevation is without parallel, the ground floor elevation is 14 feet above sea level which affords it a one of a kind perspective on seaside living. The property is very private, truly a one of a kind tropical paradise.
