                          Year Purchased: 1988

                          About: Jane and Michael Duffy have lived in Washington, DC since the late-1960s. 'Wistful Vista,' their Lake Anna home, was built in 1988 as a weekend retreat for their family and friends. Now, as empty nesters who plan to spend most of their summers in Montana, they are eager to share this lovely home with others seeking a quiet and restful retreat from work, school and the daily grind.

                          Why Lake Anna:
                          Having grown up Montana, Michael was eager to find a place away from the city. Jane's family had a lake house in New Jersey. They found the answer to their dreams in 'Wistful Vista.'

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The home and landscaping have been designed so that guests think they have the lake to themselves. There are numerous areas for quiet relaxation and contemplation among the towering trees and flowering shrubs.
