THE BEECHER HOME "We live in every inch of our home" is the way Becky and Vera Beecher describe their home.
Built in 1957 with seven rooms and two baths and bought bv the Beechers three years ago, the home is one of the oldest in Forrest Hills. A huge deck was recently added to the back of the home. Overlooking the golf course, the deck comes complete with bar and is ideal for entertaining during the summer months. A fireplace adds to the decor of the light and airy modern living room with an intimate dining area in view. Tastefully decorated in shades of burgundy, the spacious master bedroom-sitting room, comes complete with a king size bed. Access to the deck is also available from this room.
Stuffed animals, a stereo and rainbow complement 15-year-old Deanna's room, while son Jim's room is typical of an 18-year-old. A glass top table and gray carpeting highlight the dining area, adjacent to the kitchen.
