About Karen and Fred

We met each other in Los Angeles, California, where we both worked -- Fred as an Account Executive, Karen as a Project Executive. Retired and moved to Washington, Pennsylvania, for elderly parents. Joined a community nonprofit organization as President, Secretary/Treasurer, for 6 years, created the Mending Fences Program to help qualified low-income homeowners to repair their homes to continue living in them. Wow, what fun experiences and lifetime relationships have been built! Recently retired from the nonprofit and moved to New Port Richey. We intend to live life to the fullest.

Karen and Fred purchased this house in 2016

Why Karen and Fred chose New Port Richey

We found this wonderful home in a friendly community with great neighbors. It's all one level and easy to move around without bumping into each other. The rooms are spacious. It's a great home-away-from-home without the feeling of being in a timeshare or resort. Everything a person would want is within easy reach, such as the local grocery store stocked with everything including wine and beer! There's a wonderful park within about a mile to go hiking or biking, as well as beaches where you can rent bikes, kayaks, and more!

What makes this house unique

We knew this was the right hime for us as soon as we walked into the front door. The immediate view of the open living area and the pool beyond it. Very spacious living spaces. Plenty of choices on eating areas or for playing cards or other games. The pool area has its own bathroom so no traipsing wet through the house.

We had a great time in New Port Richey due to the lovely accommodations we rented. Very spacious home with most of what we wanted. A gas BBQ would of made it perfect. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

The home has a nice pool. The 3rd bedroom is really just for kids since the mattress is on a frame (no box springs). If you are planning to watch TV be prepared for no cable and it only brings in a few channels on antenna (2 are Spanish).

Florida fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with our family to help our family move from one home into another in the area. The house was a great size and we had plenty of room for visiting. Spending time out by the pool and swimming was fun, the pool temperature was perfect! The house is close to amenities, grocery stores and shopping malls. It was a fairly quick drive and very easy to the really nice beaches south of the house.
