Making the dream
Dream realized: "To me, a dream home doesn't have to be a mansion. It should be a place where you feel comfortable and at peace, where you make happy memories." said Maura Iacoboni. "I must say, this home works for us. I love to see family and friends together having fun because that is what it's all about. I tell my husband [that] now we will have room for lots of grandkids (someday) to stay with us."
Personal touches: "In the living room the clock on the credenza is from my great-grandmother, a wonderful family heirloom," Maura Iacoboni noted. "Mary Veiga [local artist and creator of trompe l'oeil] painted me the 'Amalfi Coast' which is simply beautiful. She is so talented and a great friend to have."
