Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We bought this as our home when we moved to State College in 2001. Over the years our family has grown and so has our love for the house and the neighborhood. Our work has since taken us out of the area, but our attachment has not diminished. While we can't get there as often as we'd like, we hope others can enjoy the house as we have.

Why the Owner Chose State College:
We've lived in Boston, the metro DC area, and a small city in northern Italy. Being in the Borough of State College, our Purple House has elements of everything we've loved about every place we've lived. We have great neighbors, and are close to everything, without the hassle of a big city.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stepping out the front door and heading down the quiet tree lined street, you can walk anywhere your mood takes you.
