Congratulations to the July / Aug 2012 Home of the Month! Your hard work and dedication has made your home a beautiful place to live. (Photos by Erica Allums)

Everyone has noticed the Colombia flag blowing in the wind at 2601 7th St. North. This just happens to be our July Home of the Month. Residing there are Dan and Silvia Leeper and their children, Nico and Simone. Expanded from an original structure built in 1952, this fabulous red brick house is a shining star in our neighborhood. I truly love everything about this home. In a 2003 renovation, the owners added on about 1,700 square feet of pure beauty. Of course, my favorite room—and Silvia’—is the spacious kitchen, with pristine maple cabinets and a large Wolf stove top, perfect for all those yummy family dinners at the Leepers. Dan’s favorite is the perfectly decorated living room with the gorgeous Colombian Marble fireplace (that I love). The walls throughout the house are painted the most beautiful colors, from lovely yellows to Gulf of Mexico blues. Outside is a charming gazebo and patio perfect for entertaining…or it will be when Dan gets on board with Silvia’s newest project, French doors leading out to the wonderful patio. This is the only house their kids have lived in. They love Crescent Heights and all their great neighbors. Dan and Silvia are both attorneys at Leeper and Leeper, 2532 5th Ave. N. Son Nico is a student at Columbia University, Simone will soon be leaving for New York to join him. Congratulations! – Erica Allums
