                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: I am a Marine, that somehow, ended up at Notre Dame. For 17 years, I ran and taught in the Engineering Machine Shop. During that time, I started my own small shop. Just, recently we closed the shop after 35 years, it was quite a life changing moment. I have invested in this neighborhood, both, physically and emotionally, building the shop, the 'grey house' in front, and believe it or not, Joey, yeah that the one, Montana, lived with me for awhile, no lie). Loved his dog too! I purchased other properties along the way, our 'little house', built in 1906, a few lots away, down the street to the west, 1/2 block closer to ND, 3 lots, directly across the street from both the 'Big House' and the 'Grey House'. One of those lots, had little white house, with a back porch, just right for my mother. When she passed away in my arms in 2007, I sold that property to Notre Dame. We currently rent out the 'little house' to professors, graduate students, visiting foreign faculty, from all over the world. We love it. My wife especially loves the cultural interaction, the female company and children.

                  Why the Owner Chose South Bend:
                  We are renting this property, because we realize we have way to much 'stuff'. There are only two of us and 'the big' house is huge. So it just makes sense, we are so close to campus, etc. so why not rent?! No more hassles for large groups with hotels, eating out, parking, not knowing where you are, and any other discomfort that comes with the hectic ND football/ND event weekends.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The flyovers shake the ground. The plays are called. You can hear the buildup, the roar, or the silence, depending on the outcome, before it can even reach the airways. Come join us in this unbelievable experience. Come be a part of our 'pot of gold' at end of the rainbow!
