The team at Southern Moss Realty Company is thrilled to announce that the Porch of the Month for April 2019 belongs to Mike King! Mike has a love for plants and design which is quite apparent when you arrive at his beautiful home. Check out the photos and a little bit about his inspiration below.
What is your favorite thing about having a front porch?
Being able to enjoy the weather and converse with passing neighbors.
Was there a special inspiration in the decorating of your porch?
I wanted to keep with the Historic Tradition of the neighborhood. I envisioned the original homeowners having big hanging baskets of Boston Ferns and potted flowers scattered through out the yard and porch with multiple areas for seating.
How long have you lived in Springfield?
It will be 3 years in May
What is the best part of living in Springfield?
Living and working in the Urban Core. I pretty much live and work on the same street. 1.2 miles from home to work…..lol. The sense of community is amazing. I moved from Riverside to Springfield and it’s like two different worlds. I love being in a front porch community.
What advice would you give to folks thinking about moving to Springfield?
Do it. You won’t regret it. Come walk the streets and talk to current homeowners. It’s what I did and what convinced me to buy in the neighborhood.
