About: My husband Gary and I met in Brevard 30 years ago. We have been renovating homes in and around Brevard for the last 23 years. This Vacation Rental: The Brown Eyed Susie is fondly named after me. We both enjoy bringing back to life homes that have been neglected and somewhat 'remuddled' This one has heart and the benefit of being walking distance to the wonderful town of Brevard.
Why Brevard: We actually looked to buy this home many years ago...It needed so much work that we shied away. When it came on the market again, at a price that would allow us to do the necessary work, we jumped. We have added three closets, a half bath, laundry room, changed location of a bedroom and kitchen, rebuilt back porch, opened up walls to open space, replaced floor joists, replaced floor in kitchen and mud porch, relocated parking from back to front of house, all without adding any square footage (same footprint) ....It worked...whew!!! Time for a vacation!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Walking distance to town, comfort and character of an old home, big front porch with swing and extra seating, walking distance to Library
