Sitting majestically on a corner in Westmoreland, the brick beauty, built in 1939, is owned by Tim Valko and Jim Moore. Lovingly updated to reflect the owners’ good taste, the first floor is traditional; understated elegance with beautiful glass and art  piece adornments. The home is used for many charitable functions and lends itself well for an intimate dinner of 10 or a group of 50— often with Tim sharing his culinary skills.

The lower level plays to a contemporary beat – bold, vivid colors with comfortable modern furniture and art. Built in wall shelves feature a considerable glass collection. A fun alcove houses the bar, dipped in reds and ready for any party.

The backyard is amazing. The landscaping boasts a multitude of plantings, comfortable sitting areas and garden art pop-ups. For those ‘oh so hot’ days,  the lap pool is the answer.

The home is surrounded by a stately and dignified neighborhood with the Moore/Valko home as a focal point.
