What is behind the front door? Come and see! As the door closes behind you it is suddenly noticed that the noise from outside is silenced. Mid-Century delights are discovered all around! Built-in shelves nestled alongside the brick fireplace, room in the kitchen for a breakfast nook and a front porch the size of an extra room. There is exquisite tile work and the hardwood floors have slumbered for years under a blanket of carpeting. Decorative woodwork can be found inside and outside the house. All the rooms have walls that have become an artist’s empty canvas— stretched and ready for new memories.
You’ll feel you have stepped into another era, far away from worldly woes. The little girl who was raised here was the first to discover this magic. So many visitors have noticed this unusual calm. Your eyes can rest on the living room’s large window wall and the view of the private backyard it frames. Imagine the cookouts on the brick patio, and the long ago 4 th of July firework displays on the lawn. Pets played their own version of hide and seek (with mythical creatures always invited to participate!). Off to the side is a staircase that leads to another surprise----a second level to the yard! Here there is room for a children’s playground, or a table for small al fresco dinners, or a lovely setting for the overflow of party guests. Even a hammock could be
placed for sublime napping. There is plenty of space for all of the above!
And the magic doesn’t stop! When the wind is just right, a breeze can enter the house through opened doors. Like an eager dance partner, it will swirl and twirl around you through the living room and dining room. It’s the very same dining room that hosted writers Ray Bradbury and Dorothy Parker
for dinner. The little girl’s father was a writer too and wrote a best- selling novel in this house. The house is still overflowing with magic and charm but it does need work. But what about the little girl, you ask? She’s almost 70 years old and knows it is time to pass this enchanted house to someone new.
Could that be you?
