When passing by this week’s “Beautiful Home”, one will see a house with flower boxes overflowing with bright pink petunias, two large pots filled with petunias and white impatiens, and ground cover consisting of pink petunias, yellow marigolds, and white impatiens creating a beautiful and welcoming feel.
But, if one just passed by, they would have no idea of what the back of this beautifully maintained home looked like. Entering along the side of the house through a mass of red/orange impatiens leads to a set of stairs that take one to a spectacular back yard that can only be described as a sanctuary.
The entire area is covered with granite slabs instead of grass. A raised area covered by a pergola has furniture for sitting and relaxing and a dining area that has a large table and chairs. There is also a fire pit surrounded by seating where one can relax and have quiet conversation. All sides of the area have flowers growing on waist high walls.
And the work continues as an outdoor kitchen is in the process of being installed and a charming miniature greenhouse has just been completed but not yet utilized.
Frankie Ippolito, the son of the homeowner, informed us that all of the work on the property has been done to allow his mother to be able to entertain the many family members that live in the area comfortably.
The Revere Beautification Committee (RBC) commends Mr. Ippolito for setting an example of what a property owner can do to make it beautiful and urges all Revere residents to emulate Frankie Ippolito so that Revere becomes a lovelier place in which to live.
