I am a Classical musician and live with a Classical pianist. We do concerts and recordings. I am 53 and my boyfriend is 46. We work hard, have no TV, and also host house concerts occasionally on the ground floor of our property. (if you are here during one of those, you are cordially invited.) I lived in Holland for 14 years before moving back to California. I love France and Italy. Our house would be great for a visiting professor or music lover, or anyone interested in the arts or just wants a peaceful place to stay near the university. We generally give our guests total privacy, unless there are questions.
