              About the owner: We are Hank and Pat Verissimo. We have been married for 57 years and have a large family of 4 children, 13 grandchildren, and 7 great/grandchildren. We chose Northstar to live because we love to ski and it has been a place with many memories of friends and family.

              Why the Owner Chose Northstar:
              After renting homes at Northstar for 15 years we decided to design and build a home especially suited for our large family.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home lets us ski in a world class resort. We enjoy hiking, biking and the friendly people At Northstar. It is a little piece of heaven.
