Present Owners: Jess and Nancy Fowler
Jane Whitnack, a Fair Oaks Historical Society member, suggested we seek out this home for our article. In 1993, she did a series of notecards depicting old homes in Fair Oaks. A sample is the ink drawing above which is the featured colonial home this issue.
The present owners, Jess and Nancy Fowler and their three sons, bought the home in 1997. They have made major changes in the landscape including a beautiful swimming pool and terraced lawns. The large lot is canopied with massive oaks.
The architecture of this home has been retained. The main house has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, dinning room and basement. There is a mother-in-law’s quarters containing 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. Presently, the owners share it as a "get-away" area. In the future, either of their mothers will be welcome to live with them!
The former family, the Boldini’s from Chicago, upgraded the kitchen during their ownership. It is said that the chandelier in the dinning room came from Al Capone's home.
