    My family lived in this home from '68 - '74.  I'm not sure, but we could have been only the 2nd owners.  Renovations to the home included my dad relcoated the downstairs master suite to where the screen porch was origionally.  He also enclosed the garage creating the rear family room and office space.  It was/is a beautiful home in a wonderful neighborhood.  It was nice growing up there and lots of fond memories.
