Kevin and Monica Flanagan moved to 10th Avenue in May from their Oak Park home of nine years.
Kevin, originally from Salinas, sells German manufacturing equipment. Sacramento native Monica is director of innovation and partnerships at the Sacramento Area Council of Governments. She can bike to work.
The Flanagans had lovingly restored their Oak Park Craftsman bungalow but wanted a larger home.
They visited an English Revival-style home a few times before deciding to make an offer. They loved the bones of the house, but it needed some attention.
Talented and experienced old home restorers, Monica and Kevin have been at work from the moment they received the keys. Several projects will keep them busy into 2021.
While Kevin is focused on the house, Monica also finds time for sewing and food preservation. She has entered her delectables in the State Fair three times, receiving 14 blue ribbons for jams, marmalades and a variety of pickled vegetables.
