This house is our family home, which our parents purchased in 1940. They spent 70 years together in this hillside home, raising six children. My father was a local teacher and coach, my mother a local newspaper reporter and author. The house is now owned by the six children. Because the house is such a special place to all of us, we wanted to keep it in the family so that family and friends can continue to enjoy it. Come visit us!
