Owner Cheri Sciscione


Of more immediate interest, perhaps, to the couple's three preteen children, was the fact that the property possessed a fishing pond, though they'd have to bushwhack their way through heaped trash and fallen trees to reach it. It also had five bathrooms (none of which worked), as well as a barn, a corncrib, a springhouse, and an overgrown orchard, all of which would surely take years to revive. In the home restorer's vernacular, the place had endless "potential", if only the new owners could be patient enough for it to reveal itself—and Cheri (shown here in the garden) and Tony had not only fortitude but also a clear vision and a workable plan.
