Why it’s for sale Roger, 79, a retired engineer in the construction business, and his wife, Carolyn, 71, a homemaker, are moving to Florida.

The Heyrmans’ contemporary home is a Levitt prototype that was built in 1970. The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has 2,400 square feet of living space, cedar plank siding and an attached two-car garage. Roger talks about the home:

“We have a large screened-in porch that looks out to a completely wooded lot. We use it every day from May to October, and eat all our meals there ... It’s a convenient, nice and relaxing place ... and private ... There are no neighbors to the rear. The living room, dining room, den and master bedroom have vaulted ceilings. The living room has exposed beam running through it and a wood-burning fireplace. In front of the fireplace is a conversation pit. It has a recessed floor and built-in bench seating for about a dozen people. The den has barnwood walls ... slate floors and a fireplace. We use the fireplace every night November through April and use about two cords of wood each season. Also in the den we have a wet bar ... and sliding glass doors ... that lead out to the porch. The ground-floor master bedroom ... is a suite. The sink vanity is in an alcove and the shower, tub and toilet are in a separate room ... There is central air conditioning throughout the house. There’s a covered breezeway running the full length of the garage ... which is quite different ..."
