Home of the Month | May 2012

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

The May Home of the Month belongs to Kelly and Doris Cope at 744 25th Ave N. This 1946 alabaster cottage with detached garage is a cheerful accessory to the neighborhood. With its rounded doorways, beautiful kitchen, and brand new laundry room, I can see why the Copes have lived here for 33 years.

Retirement is fabulous for Kelly and Doris who enjoy going out with friends and traveling. Their plans this month are Orlando and a wedding in Georgia. (I love weddings!) You can find Doris most days outside gardening and working out at the YMCA. Their favorite room in the house would be the front porch. And what a porch it is, with all built-in seating with extra comfy cushions and storage underneath in deep drawers! Doris loves to cook, and I can see why. Her kitchen is great, with its wood floors and handsome cabinets. A few years ago, the Copes returned home from their honeymoon to find that neighbors had gotten together and surprised them with brand new landscaping. What can I say: Crescent Heights is the place to live! – Erica Allums
