From Hampton…to “Hampton South”

A young friend said that she could not understand why going to a retirement community would be such a big deal. She said that she and her good friends went to college at age 18 and stayed in a college dorm together.  “Isn’t it pretty much the same thing?”, she asked.  Bonds of friendship still connect a group of 18 former residents of Hampton who moved to Edenwald over the past ten

Renovation: Rancho La Paloma

Last winter when John and Kelly Hellmuth first toured a house on Doves Cove Rd, Kelly was excited at the prospect of living in Hampton and John, an architect, was excited as he immediately recognized the Frank Lloyd Wright influence in this architect-designed 1954 ranch house. Built with multiple features that emulate Lloyd Wright Eusonian homes of the early to mid 20th century, this home has

New Neighbor Spotlight: The Eylers

My wife Kristin, daughter Anna, and I bought our Stags Head Road house in 2008 and after doing extensive renovations, finally moved in February 2009.

I started my website design & development business, Fluid Web Solutions
