712 E. Park Avenue This was another lakefront property the judges thought would be a fun place to hang out at. The home is owned by Steve and Diane Munson. The judges liked how the steep yard was turned into small gardens and sitting areas to make it a useable space, and they appreciated the flags hanging from the deck and also on the flag pole. The judges also liked the fact there were two docks — one for the big kid toys and one for the actual kids.
