The pair, now each 44 years outdated, purchased the property for about $600,000 in 2018 and tore down the postwar duplex that was on it. They then spent about $1.three million to create the three-story, 5,700-square-foot, five-bedroom home. It options retractable partitions that permit the household to show their yard into an extension of the lounge.
