The Previous Owners Insight: “This is actually my mother’s home and it’s 60 years old!  I was born here and have witnessed many changes over the years.  It’s always been such a nice place to live around here. It’s sad but at the same time you do what you have to do and move on. My favourite spot growing up was reading in front of the fireplace,” Heidi said.
