This refined Park Place townhome is now on the market and listed by Kerry Walton with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $435,000. And there is more than one reason to fall head over heels for this Perry Heights gem.

Nixon was installed rather unceremoniously in the White House in 1981, according to an article written by the iconic White House news reporter Helen Thomas.”
