We love our home. It has the quirks and charm of any house built in 1940, like the squeak of the hardwoods as you walk on them. The bathroom colors and fixtures reflect the age of the home and have beautiful floor to ceiling tile. We have tried to make our home as cozy and comfortable as possible without altering the original character and we hope you enjoy!
