Letter from the Sellers:
As we stand back and look at this home, we think of all the special memories we have made in the 37 years we have lived here. I think one of my favorite things about this home is how quiet and peaceful it has always been. Turning into the driveway, it is like entering our own little sanctuary. The green of summer, the amazing colors of fall foliage, the incredible snow days with the trees covered in white, and the budding greenery of spring.
This has always been a home for welcoming friends and guests, and I love how folks can wander and visit from the living room to the kitchen and family room. The best is the view from the living room, with such a private front yard almost like our own special campground. The big windows always made the holidays special too, with our Christmas tree and holiday lights greeting me at the end of the workday.
Our friends who would visit always comment on how quiet it is, and how restful their sleep was when they visited here. In the evenings, we enjoy listening to families laughing and children playing, and in the mornings the singing birds welcome the new day. During the day and into the evening neighbors walk by and wave on their daily walks.
The back yard has hosted kid’s plays, picnics, hours of baseball catching, volleyball and badminton. The shop has been my hobby sanctuary as well, and many varied projects have taken shape there. For my wife, the basement room was her sewing retreat away from the work world. I loved coming home and seeing her with friends laughing and sewing their quilts, with plenty of room for multiple sewing machines and many happy hands. With Cottage Lake just so close to this home, it extends the true feeling a getaway!
No matter the size of the gathering, this warm home has always welcomed everyone with plenty of space and so many happy memories. We have loved living here for 37 years, and the quiet and peacefulness have never changed. Our drive to the freeway has not gotten any harder, and it is so very convenient for groceries, shopping and even getting into the big city. It has such a great country feel, yet is close in. With a new chapter ahead of us, we look forward to welcoming the proud new owners.
Thank you for touring.
