Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: Young at heart senior citizen couple. Retired after 37 years in education. Married 44 years with 3 adult children, 2 granddaughters. We enjoy traveling around the states and the world. We also love gardening, music, camping, surfing, swimming, boating. We've been renting out our home occasionally for the last 10 years. When hosting travelers we either live in Richard's family home, our RV or travel to parts unknown

Why the Owner Chose Other Carlsbad Properties:
This year (2015) it will be 50 years since we purchased our home. It's an older Carlsbad home built in 1955 but remodeled and remodeled again into what we think is a great cozy family home. We've raised our children, became empty nesters, retired, and realized we could share our home so we could go explore. We still live in our home when it's not rented and do not rent out during the holidays and/or when our children come back to town
