Every once in a while we get an opportunity to work with a family and a property that just stand apart. While every member of the Ron and Don Nation are important to us, there are some stories that just begged to be told.

Recently we met with a wonderful seller that was finally ready to say goodbye to their home. This incredible property boasts 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Yeah, you read that correctly. And if that wasn’t enough, it has 12 garage stalls!

In learning more it was clear that this wasn’t just a house, but a home. We invite you to take a self-guided, virtual tour below, and see the full listing by clicking here.

As you walk through this home, it’s hard not to think about what it would be like to live here. So much so that our seller’s daughter even wrote a full letter describing what it was like to grow up in the home. We wanted to share that letter with you.

The features I love about the house…

How it can accommodate many people in a variety of ways. Our family used it to:

A) Raise kids

B) Host out of town guests

C) Host car collector parties…Picture Ferraris, a Lotus, a Pantera Vantage, Mustang Boss 429, Porsche Vertebra, Mercedes’ E63 AMG Wagon, gleaming in the sunlight as they are parked in back and people could walk around kicking tires rallying cars while drinking a glass of wine. 

D) Host a wedding and reception (my husband and I got married in the living room as witnessed by 75 of our clients, friends and family)

E) Holiday cookie baking gatherings where the dining tables would be full of cookies ready to be baked or just out of the oven. 

F) Milestone birthday parties

G) Graduation parties

H) Wakes 

I) Baby showers

G) Christmas morning with the kids, grandkids and great grandkids eagerly waiting to open all those presents sitting under the tree. 

H) Quiet spaces for hobbies, self-reflection or inventions.
