                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We purchase this home from the original owner who had the home built back in 1958. She was a school teacher and nature lover. She also had an affinity for modern concept living. We kept her exterior design and refurbished the home to meet the needs of modern family life. The floors are the original Terrazzo floors. We redesigned the two bedroom two bath home into a three bedroom three bath home with updated amenities. If you are a lover of Mid-Century Modern, our home will meet your expectations.
