John, Amy, Norm, and Sue purchased this historic home with the desire to restore a bit of history. It was taken down to its studs and rebuilt using as much of the existing wood and style as possible. The result is a home with beautiful hardwood floors, wide trim, decorative windows all with modern conveniences. During construction we found in the walls a very old shoe and a few old books.
Norm and Sue have been coming to Arcadia since they were each kids. They met here and married. They had 4 children, one of them Amy. Amy met John in Arcadia whose family also vacationed here for generations. In fact, John's Great Uncle chaperoned Norm's parents' first date right in Arcadia. John and Amy live in Arcadia year round, Norm and Sue plan to retire to Arcadia.
John's vision of this home inspired us all to bring back its original beauty. John tirelessly removed flooring, wallboard, and drop ceilings to uncover its historic wonder while Norm and Sue stripped and stained the original wood trim. From the high ceilings to the hardwood floors, this home is a testament to old fashioned craftmanship.
