                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Diagnosed with breast cancer at age 40 along with 4 other sisters and my mom. Went through a year of chemo in the days when Doctors didn't believe young women got breast cancer! Am also an occupational therapist with a specialty in Hand rehab for instrumental musicians.

                          Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend:
                          Old College friends bought this property for me and held it until I could pay for it. A great 'drinking story' if guests are ever really interested in hearing this one!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                          This house is in a residential setting but so very close to local micro-breweries, Fort Worden, golf course and more. The view of the bay is mesmerizing. Lots of Bambi's abound.
