To the future buyers of 6504 Windmere Road,
We owed 3 homes before taking the step to building this home from scratch. Our builder agreed to build the house from our sketches, which admittedly, changed as the home evolved before us. Whenever the opportunity for storage presented itself, we took it. We love homes with "good bones" such as moldings, trims, and arched windows. His main desire was room for tools, and mine was for a dining room that would accommodate family dinners easily. I wanted plenty of built-in storage for 7 sets of china and a collection of table décor! Our table opens to 120" and no one is stuck in a corner! We will definitely miss the ease of entertaining in this home.
Our sons found the "bonus room" over the garage was their favorite place to spend time with friends. The large open space, flooded with sunlight, was always decorated with train tracks, Lego villages, and Star Wars universes. After they left home, we used the space as a wonderful guest room, offering everything company could need, including a full private bath. If all of our family members were polled today, I believe the sunroom would win as the most desired place in the home. We live there when the weather is warm, but with the help of the ceiling/heater fan, we have even enjoyed porch Christmas parties! Dinners on the porch with birds visiting the feeders, or listening to rain on the roof, are magical! We have complete privacy from our neighbors due to strategic plantings. The perennial flowers have been staged so that there is always something in bloom to look forward to.
My 3 children attended the schools in Central Dauphin district. We missed out on the new high school, but the education they received allowed each one to attend college and become productive adults in their chosen fields. I had a particularly personal relationship with Paxtonia Elementary School when, for 28 years, I was able to frame the growing art collection that lines the entry walls.
Neither of us are native to Central Pa, but after living around this area for most of our 50 years together, we do love, and appreciate the beauty and convenience it offers. We enjoy visiting other cities with museums, galleries, restaurants, and theater, but when we return home we feel comforted and welcome. We find our location in PA is very convenient to surrounding states and so many attractions are within a days drive. Locally, Harrisburg offers just about everything we need, from shopping to excellent medical facilities, and a convenient airport. We have a few favorite restaurants near home, especially The Skyline on Rt 22, that are our go-to regulars. It is fun to see familiar faces among the staff and customers. That said, we enjoy meals out in fancier places each month. We have enjoyed the variety within an hours drive from home. Art & Craft festivals are so plentiful in the area that a different one could be visited every week. Fans of college and high school sports have many available choices nearby.
This house became a "home" and holds precious memories for us. We hope another family will feel the love we leave for them to create their own legacy.
