Secret Garden Artist’s Retreat is going up for sale

This lovely house built in 1895 has been the beloved home of artists Evan Hildebrandt and Alison Shepard for 11 years.   Shepard and Hildebrandt moved to this home one year after they were married, and have made many improvements on the house over the years, including glass block windows, a large back deck, kitchen flooring, and brand new siding in the summer of 2015.   This is a home filled with great care and love, with good energy baked in for over a decade.  Shepard and Hildebrandt have plans to spend time abroad in Spain to further pursue their art careers, and this beautiful home could be yours!  Before putting it on the market, the couple would like to share images and information about the house as a sneak preview while they are finding a realtor.   For more info, stay tuned to the Artpocket Shepard Hildebrandt Blog and look for this home to be featured on MLS later this summer.   In the meantime, be sure to tell a friend about this lovely home, or feel free to contact Evan and Alison if you have any questions.

Shepard, a Sayler Park native, has created beautiful perennial gardens throughout the front, back and side yards, with color that lasts throughout the growing seasons.   Hildebrandt, also an avid gardener has planted fruit-bearing trees including peach, apple, as well as raspberry, blueberry bushes.   The flowers and trees have made this double lot yard a natural sanctuary for birds and butterflies.
