A little about us:
We love the character and quality of these historic homes and have fallen in love with several homes in Laramie.  Being an artist and designer, René has done much of the work herself.  David has an eye for quality and vintage features.  After living in this house and enjoying all of the features, David found another property in desperate need of some attention before it was removed and replaced with commercial property.  The new property is located at 311-315 S 4th Street and it has a greenhouse (original Laramie Floral) and an art studio for René’s home base. 4th Street Studios

The neighborhood is amazing with retired, UW professors, interesting folks with stories about the hood mixed in with young families and people like us that wouldn’t live anywhere else.  It is nice to see the kids playing in the streets and riding their bikes all summer.  Everyone around here is a dog walker and as we sit on the porch everyday it is great to see everyone.

We look forward to finding the perfect new owner for this property.


René and David Williams
