Seeking to buy a special house

Hi, my partner and I (she's a farmer/teacher, I'm a playwright/teacher) have been living in beautiful apartments in Fair Haven and Fair Haven Heights for a long time, thanks in part to the help of folks on this site. We're finally looking to buy a house, and are hoping someone here might know of a really special one (ideally near the river or some nice trees).

SUGGESTION FOR STRONG SCHOOL USE

       Since I could not stay for the entire meeting, I wanted to add my suggestion for a new use of the Strong School.

       Despite the diversity of the neighborhood on both sides of the river, we don't have the variety of retail that I personally would like to see. There used to be a lot of good stores on both sides and both ends of the Bridge, but some were lost to fire and some to development. Fair Haven has a lot of retail, but Fair Haven Heights does not.

       The…
