House for sale

Jean and Gil Mettler are selling their house. 

It is listed in the WLA Classifieds section with a slide show of this very nice property. 

Perhaps you know of someone who is looking for a nice home in the area.

Notice: Copper water pipes cut and stolen from underneath a house.

posted Apr 13, 2018, 8:07 PM by Washington Lake Association   [ updated Jul 1, 2018, 9:11 AM ]

We were informed by a home owner that during this past winter someone had stolen the copper water pipes running under their house. The house was not entered and it appears that nothing else was taken. 

If you have a home that you have not recently visited you may want to perform a quick check before coming up with a large number of guests only to find out that you have no water.
