The owner, a social scientist, knows that what keeps far-flung families connected is reunions, the events that mark the landmarks in family-members' lives (marriages, graduations, victories and loses), holidays or just happen because it's high time, so why not now? He loves to play the invisible host to your gatherings with all their noise, children's footfalls, socializing, parties and ruckus comings and goings. It's a great house for parties.
