Plenty of sunlight and a small yard drew Pam and Jerry Daniels to their Hardy Pointe home in Evans nine years ago.
Their previous home had a wood exterior, was on a heavily wooded lot and required a lot of maintenance.
Now their two sons are grown and have families of their own, and the small front yard and a largely concrete backyard are much easier for the couple to keep up with.
The 2,900-square-foot house, tucked into a quiet cul-de-sac, is filled with items that are meaningful to the couple.
Jerry’s office, just off the foyer, is decorated
with Masters Tournament memorabilia. A shadowbox above the closet features a portrait of his father and two of his baseball gloves.
Above the doorway, four colorful Korean opera masks smile down at guests. The couple picked them up while working for Westinghouse in Korea.
A lighted curio cabinet custom made in Taiwan is filled with treasures the couple collected while overseas. Beside it hangs a painting of a Korean farmer and his water buffalo.
When the weather’s nice, the couple can often be found in the backyard. Pam likes working in the gardens around the concrete patio, and her husband enjoys relaxing on the screened-in porch.
“It’s very nice back here when the trees are in full foliage,” she said. “Very peaceful.”
