                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: My husband's profession has afforded us the opportunity to travel as well as live in different parts of the country. We chose to settle in the Lower Mills community of Boston because of its quiet and quaint feeling yet still be a part of the life of Boston. The fact that we have 3, wonderful, grandchildren close by had nothing to do with our decision. Being from the South, originally, we have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and the history behind our area. We have lived in Boston for 25 years and love Boston and New England. I have enjoyed decorating and making our suite a delightful haven for traveling guests and my husband is the consummate friendly tour guide, who will gladly tell you what to be sure and see and how best to get there.
