Childhood Home of Drew Brees Hits the Market
It's no secret that celebrity ownership can add a little bit of value to a home. Sometimes, the value is tangible and the house can be treated as an investment. Other times, the value is in the intangible. Perhaps, some believe that by buying a home, perhaps they can harness some of its creative energy.
The home is just around the corner from Westlake High School where the legend of Drew Brees was born before he went on to play college ball at Purdue.
The listing describes the home as sitting on almost half an acre, spanning three city lots.
Born in 1933, the all-brick American Four Square home adds a 3-car detached garage and guest house.
The back yard is described as park-like.
In the living room, the listing describes a craftsman-style wood-burning fireplace and original natural wood trim. Hardwood floors complete the entirety of the home.
Lots of original details remain including the original floor to ceiling bookcases in the family room.
On the other hand, the kitchen is more updated with stainless appliances. The cabinets are also updated but period appropriate.
The back yard looks like a great place to spend some time with a covered porch and a gazebo.
A stone wall toward the rear of the property even backs up to a creek!
