When asked what he liked about growing up at 8 Whittier St, he described it as a "blessed spot. His familys home for 50 years, it is bathed in light, love & personality.

The 2nd floor has 3 lovely bedrooms plus a study & the top floor has 2 additional bedrooms & a bonus spot for projects. The full basement houses laundry, a bathroom, and endless opportunities.
