I Have Some Information

This building belongs to my parents. They bought it to use as their real estate office, and lovingly restored it. It’s like a member of the family.
It is now home to 5 professional, leased offices, and I manage it for them.
Both my parents were teachers, and Dad’s first position was at the Monroe Academy, right across the street!
It’s a beautiful, gracious, old building. It has a big backyard, with two graceful Dawn Redwoods, a dogwood, magnolia, chestnut, and black raspberries. There are still stepping stones leading to an old lilac tree, where the outhouse used to be.
There was once an addition off the back, that was a summer kitchen.
I’m so glad my parents restored and preserved it!
