Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: Gloria and I came to Homer in 1981 from Long Island New York. Our first three children were born there and our two adopted kids were born in Alaska and came to be ours in their infancy. We have had a busy 32 years of raising children, Doug working on the North Slope for ARCO Alaska, commercial fishing and more recently working for the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge as a Naturalist on the State ferry Tustumena traveling from Homer to Dutch Harbor over 120 times. We've built a smaller home out of town to be near our children and grand children. We have loved our 'town house' and have wonderful memories of our years spent here. It's a very comfortable home from which to enjoy and 'take in' all that Homer, Alaska has to offer. Please see our expanded link to see many more pictures and our special free amenities we would like to offer you.
Why the Owner Chose Homer, AK, USA:
As soon as we stepped through the door with our realtor, we immediatly fell in love with 292 Mountain View Drive. It was huge compared to our homestead trailer out of town. It had bedrooms for all and a view that has awed us for 27 years besides having three levels so that children and adults can gather together or separate for entertaining. The benifits of living close to but not next to all the amenities a large, growing family needs was wonderful. Gloria and I feel that not only your needs but all your vacation wishes will be met here also.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
As large as our house is it has the warmth that makes everyone feel they've come home! We know you will feel that way too. Doug and Gloria Stuart
