A long time resident of SoCA, I'm a native New Yorker who has also spent a share of time in Chicago and Miami. Raised a city girl, I am also at home in the country, I periodically need to spend some time deep within some forest or another,and prefer to live in close proximity to lakes, rivers and streams. I am happiest when I have space to garden, and surround myself with potted plants. I have a knack for growing,
pruning and planting.
I'm a quiet sort, except for the occasional desire to turn up the music and let my heart sing, my neighbors would hardly know I'm around. Much of my time is spent at home, as I work at developing various creative projects, so it is important to me to have quiet surroundings in which to work relatively undisturbed. Being a nester, both cleanliness and comfort are vitally important to me. I enjoy the practical, eclectic architectural designs of construction prior to 1945, but in any setting I take pride in being able to create an atmosphere of warmth and a sense of relaxed comfort.
My needs and preferences: Second floor or above; adequate space to work and breathe; abundant natural light and ventilation; bathtub; gas stove; washer/dryer hook-up; a functional working kitchen; the more storage the better in cupboards and closets.
A fireplace would be delightful. The flexibility to do a little painting would be appreciated.
