Meet the Homeowners
"Old houses have something you can’t just make today." — Judy Ashley
Mark and Judy Ashley of Landisville, PA bought the home they loved to save it from demolition.
When Mark Ashley became a coach at Hempfield high school, he found himself on the soccer field again — still playing next to that old, familiar landmark. Because of their interest in the home, Mark and his wife Judy decided to visit the couple who was restoring it. They walked through the house, then looked through photos showing what it had been like before its recent renovations.
When the school board abandoned the idea of converting the home into offices, they wanted it removed. Mark and Judy stepped in to save the home demolition and inquired about purchasing the home from the school. The Ashleys were able to purchase it with a sealed bid, for only $1000, with the understanding they would be responsible for re-locating the house.
