In order to respect the privacy of each client - I only provide the town and or county that a house is located in. I hope you understand.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The National Historic Register describes the original house as having a "vaguely Japanese" character, which Schwabe attributes to the home's irregular roof overhang.
