Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: After 20 years in Microsoft, I decided to become an opera singer. Look for or bennatan and find some youtube clips. Michal, my wife, a psychologist, and I live in the house below the apartment. We have 4 kids and one grand daughter. We always loved to host people and now we use it make ends meet.

Why the Owner Chose Zikhron Ya'akov, Israel:
We chose ZIchron Yaakov while I was working for Microsoft in Redmond WA. I wanted to be near the Haifa office but I knew I have to stay close to the Israel Opera where I knew I will work one day. I do work in the Israeli Opera now (as a free lancer bass singer)

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Bath in a pool with great view located in a private garden. Great for everyone seeking complete outdoor pool privacy from any reason - romantic or religious.
