As I mentioned in my last post, the “new” house was a time capsule. It was built in 1965 and still had its original owner. The owner's wife had passed away the year before and the house was simply much too big and too much work for him, who was now 80—albeit a young 80. Many people have asked me if he went into a home and the truth is that he actually met a very nice woman and he moved in with her—at 80! Life is short, you know?
We had the great advantage of not only having a home that has never been “remuddled”, but also having access to the man who built the house in 1965! We are very lucky indeed.
Take a look at pictures of our house when it was on the market using the "Before" link on the right hand column.
