Julia Friedrichs & Delcie Bean, IV

Julia and Delcie were renting in Hadley, MA when they came across the listing for what would become their home. Their charming house in Forest Park features arched doors and a porch that provides a comfortable space for conversing with friends and neighbors. They couldn't believe how affordable such this large, well-built, and architecturally interesting home was. They moved to Springfield in 2006 and have been surprised and pleased by how much they like it here.

The couple appreciates the benefits of city living -- being near to shops, seeing people walk around, being minutes from downtown -- and the comfort of their quiet neighborhood. From their home, Julia and Delcie can be in downtown Springfield or on the highway to Hartford, Boston, Northampton or New York City in minutes.

Julia and Delcie plan to stay in their home for a long time. When they first bought the house, they thought it would be a stepping-stone and they would move away to raise children. However, after meeting many young families in their neighborhood, they expect to stay in their home as they start a family and later send their children to Springfield schools.
