Manager info

Year Purchased: 1963

About: Hello, we are sisters Terri, Tamara (Susan), Tricia and Toni who were fondly given the title 'The 4 Hens' by our younger brothers Tim and Tom. We grew up in this house and purchased it with our Roosters (husbands Chuck, Randy & Jeremy) from our Dad John in 2009.

Why Olivia, MN, USA:
Our Great Grandmother owned this house and our parents purchased it in 1963. Our mother PollyMom loved this house and had many fond memories of the home as a child. The beautiful oak floors, wood pocket doors, maids stairway, sunny mornings in the front porch, art projects on the large table or piano music filling the home, we enjoyed it all.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relax and enjoy the peacefulness of our home, comfy new beds, patchwork quilts, a soaking tub, flames in the fireplace and a large yard welcome you.
