Patton home to appear in Country Living 9.12

Written by David Green.

A Morenci home will be listed in the Real Estate Sampler of Country Living magazine.

Carl and Elaine Patton’s historic home at 610 W. Main will be one of five homes shown in the monthly feature.

Lynne Fox of the Coldwell Banker Success real estate office sent a photograph of the home to Country Living more than a year ago, but never heard back from the magazine. During that time, the house was taken off the market.

That changed last week when she received a call from New York City notifying her that the Patton home would appear in the November edition of the magazine, hitting the newsstands in October.

The Real Estate Sampler features a group of homes from around the country, showing a photo and listing information submitted by a real estate broker.

Homes are grouped by themes and that’s why Fox hadn’t heard back for several months. Photos are held, said a representative from the magazine, until a theme is chosen and the top five homes are selected.

The current issue features the salt box design and the previous month showed homes with a Spanish influence. The Patton home will appear under antiques—home that are at least 150 years old.
