A subscriber on YouTube named Josh G has informed me of the following:
This home was owned by a couple who were both Holocaust survivors from Eastern Europe.
The husband died in 2006 while the wife passed away about 2 years ago and had been featured in the local news about her battle to receive her COVID vaccination in-home.
Inevitably she did end up getting her COVID vaccine and later contracted the virus from which she recovered.
I really like this house and feel a strong connection to it simply because the lady who lived here reminded me so much of my grandmother, almost to the point of sounding/looking a bit like her.
Unfortunately the home has been sold, likely to a new buyer that plans to build a modern monstrosity on the land.

What Is Mid-Century Home Design?
This style of design refers to a period ranging from the 1930s to the 1960s, during which a clean and minimalist approach was embraced.
Mid-century homes were designed to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living spaces, emphasizing the use of natural materials.
Typically, these homes featured large windows and sliding glass doors that create a sense of openness and a strong connection to the outdoors.
The style’s hallmark was its use of a variety of materials like wood, stone, and glass that came together to create a sleek and modern aesthetic with undeniable timeless appeal and practical design elements.
It’s worth noting that mid-century design has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years and is still widely admired today.
