My home was built in 1939 by Anson Zambano, one of three brothers whose father owned a well established concrete contracting company. Anson built this home as a wedding gift to his wife using his skills from the concrete business. The house is made entireley of steel reinforced concrete, concrete block, and stone. Many of the floors are exposed and stained concrete.
The style of my home was inspired by a very large and elaborate cottswold-style mansion that the brothers were completing for the Mellon family in Ligonier PA. In fact, many pieces of our home, the stone, fireplace, window sills, roof vents, and door jambs were leftover concrete molds from the Mellon family estate. The home also includes a large flagstone terrace and staircase that overlooks the property inspired by a terrace (at least tripple it's size) at the Mellon estate.
One of my favorite parts of this home is the acreage and property that our dogs enjoy. There is plenty of room for exercise, play, exploring, and socializing. I am very proud of the casual and cage-free life that my dogs enjoy. I choose not to have large numbers in confined areas with kennels and runs, but rather for our dogs to live with us an among us in smaller numbers. Every day my dogs look at me and say "thank you" with their eyes because their souls are happy.
When searching for your next great dane, I will welcome you to my home at a time that is appropriate for the mother and puppies. I prefer visits prior to the birth to familiarize yourself with the parents of the litter. Please e-mail me to express your interest in meeting our dogs. I look forward to meeting you!
