In the weeks leading up to the Home Tour, The Friday Flyer will feature each of the five homes. This week’s feature is the home of Randy and Mavis Schultz at 30563 Wood Duck Pl.
Randy and Mavis designed and built this traditional home 14 years ago. Visitors enter this 3900 sq. ft. home through custom leaded glass doors, flanked on either side by lovely white columns. Randy did the design for the doors, while Mavis hand selected all of the glass. The rear of the home boasts views of the Dam, hills, Campground and Main Lake. The owners have traveled extensively and their home reflects their journeys.
The large travel maps in both the family room and downstairs bedroom show how much world there is to see. besides 50 books of their travels, Mavis creates a yearly book for each of the five grandchildren, documenting where they have visited. These are displayed in the living room, near the family piano.
Note the Christmas tree displaying ornaments purchased on their trips and the snow village setting the tone for the holiday season. The Master Bedroom houses a wonderful hope chest from Mavis’ mother that was built by her mother’s high school boyfriend.
Be sure to visit the “man cave” where Randy has a collection of sports memorabilia from his sons and others. This is 40 years of history and memories, all in one place. This house is truly a “Wonderland of Travel,” showing the great adventures enjoyed by this couple.
