Did you know that National Pineapple Day was on June 27th? What is National Pineapple Day?
The image of the pineapple has long adorned the welcoming entrances of some of the world’s finest homes. The exotic fruit’s association with fine living dates back to the fifteenth century, when European explorers brought them back from their voyages to the Caribbean. By the seventeenth century, when this rare and highly prized fruit began to be cultivated in hothouses, only the very wealthy could afford them and would sometimes use them as the centerpiece for their lavish entertaining tables. Pineapples became so synonymous with opulence that some were even known to rent them for their table displays.
So, when I was asked to represent the owners of 154 Broadview Avenue, and first saw the front door, I knew it was destined to be a Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s listing!
New Rochelle is GREAT!
