                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: Jason Bruce, I have lived in this area all my life and enjoy the area year round.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
                  This home was owner built. It sits on a very private lot. Lots of outdoor space yet, wooded enough to have wildlife such as deer and turkey visit on occasion. All the beauty of the Adirondacks.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Close to all the activities one would want in the Adirondacks in any season, then return to a tranquil place.
