    That's our house! And fyi, the house did once have vinyl siding, but that has been stripped and is back to its lovely wood siding. Our neighbor told us that this happened about a decade ago.

    House was recently listed for sale and is under contract now - note the lovely floors and fireplaces.

It's not THAT Esther Williams, but it's still a lovely home worth recognition.
