                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We are in our mid-30s, we love cooking/eating, going to the beach, running, biking, hiking, yoga, reading. we work long hours during the week and have a quiet and relaxed lifestyle on the weekends. Sean works in renewable energy and rosemary is an architect.

                  Why the Owner Chose South Park:
                  Sean and I are eco-conscious. We installed 3 solar panel systems (one on the front house and one on the back house and one on the house in University Heights). There is a fast charging station for your electric car. We harvest rainwater and use laundry grey water for the landscape in the courtyard. The Eco Studio is the perfect combination of beautiful, comfortable yet also sustainable living.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  South Park is such a unique neighborhood. You will not find any cookie-cutter houses here, unless you consider the 100-year-old craftsman houses which are everywhere you look. It's a beautiful, vibrant, and friendly neighborhood. No big box chain stores/restaurants/shops. Everything has a mom & pop feel to it. But the chain stores are a short drive when you need them.
