Have we given you enough to do ?
Hi, this section is actually about us, the OWNERS, not our Agent. We are a family of four living, studying and working in Buckinghamshire, UK. Chris, Karen (married 28 years), Tom, 23, studying an MA in Sports Journalism and Josh, 20, studying Ancient History with Archeology at Birmingham University. We get over to our house in Florida a couple of times a year as a family. Chris goes more often as he will go for a long weekend to check on the house and play golf. We have a twelve year old Westie named Zoe who is diabetic, has two new lenses in her eyes but is gorgeous and our quasi 'Little Girl'.
Hi, this section is why we, the OWNERS, bought this house. For years we dreamt of owning a home in the USA. We previously owned a holiday home in Wiltshire, UK. When we sold this we felt the time and USA property market were right for us. Where do you start ? We knew we wanted to be in Florida but it's a big place. Close friends already owned a condominium on The Meadows and when we researched Sarasota we discovered it to be the '..unwritten cultural capital of Florida..', seven theatres, a ballet company, the Number One beach in America in Siesta Key, great restaurants, shopping, amenities. We had found our dream area. As Chris is a golfer he had always dreamt of owning a property overlooking a fairway so with The Meadows decided upon and our Realtor acting as our guide we embarked upon our search. It took about six months to complete our purchase on 29th April 2011, Royal Wedding Day. We completely gutted the house inside, decorating throughout and employed the services of a Designer to furnish the house. We also inherited a below ground spa which was a pineapple flowerbed. After much research to try and recover this we ended up filling it in and building a new spa, feature waterfall and wet deck. All our guests can see the fantastic end results. We have furnished in a true Floridian style with a few golf reminders dotted around the house and from the comments of our guests so far, we seem to have got it right. Everyone loves the house, it's amenities and situation. When Chris visits for a weekend he eats at the Deli for breakfast and lunch (they do take away coffee) and Mona Lisa for dinner, both a minutes walk away in The Meadows Shopping Village. As family we eat all over the place, especially St. Armand's Circle of an evening for dinner and a stroll. We recommend Columbia and Crab & Fin. Every time we visit the Circle, we just love it, always something new to see in the shops. We hope this short history wets your appetite to stay in our lovely home.
It's Floridian living. The weather. A local phrase is 'JADIP', 'Just Another Day In Paradise.' The view down the 17th fairway of The Meadows course. The facilities of The Meadows Shopping Village on our doorstep. The 20 minute drive to the beaches. St Armand's Circle. The restaurants and shopping. The peace and quiet of our cul-de-sac. The friendliness of our neighbours. The safety of the area.
