Eight years ago this month (2003) we bought the Frog & PenguINN. No, it wasn’t named that when we bought it. To the locals it was, and still is the Warner Young house. Warner and his wife Mildred were the second owners, but had lived here as renters since they were married. So much for history.
We bought in January of 2003. We had been looking at houses here on and off for about two years. We were here to look at some more over a weekend and happen to drive past this one, which was ‘For Sale by Owner’. Long story shortened we looked at the house on Sunday morning just before we left for NJ, fell in serious like with it, saw lots of potential, and bought it that day (on a hand shake, common around here).
Since then, we have added on, installed central heat and air, gutted, enlarged, and modernized the kitchen. We’ve painted, sanded, replaced, repaired, ripped out and replanted, and enjoyed the past 8 years. Some looks then and now.
