What I Love About The Home
This home was in disrepair and cried out to be brought back to it’s former glory. When I purchased the home I looked at what she could be, not what she was. The restoration has been a labor or love. With each room completed I could feel her smile a little more. Today she is beaming, proud of who she was and who she is today. This house has a soul, as well as a presence from past owners that give her a character few homes can posses. She is unique, elegant, graceful and solid. She has her quirks, as all old homes do, but the reward is looking at her and feeling wow, what a beautiful home!
