Southcott Pines Retreat

10261 Pines Parkway, Southcott Pines

Welcome to the beautiful home of Ruth and Jake van Leeuwen, one of the original homes built in Southcott Pines. The couple made the happy decision to move here after retiring in 2016. The interior of the two-story home had been completely renovated by the previous owner, leaving Jake to add some finishing touches, including a large outdoor deck and relaxing hot tub. The interior of the home is decorated in traditional style, showcasing the couple’s beautiful collection of antique art and furniture. Note the “baptismal” sink in the main bathroom that is accompanied by Ruth’s grandfather’s Baptismal Certificate (dated 1892 in Dashwood). Other treasures on display throughout the home are family heirlooms and mementos collected during the couple’s extensive world travels. Exiting through the garage, you’ll get a glimpse of Jake’s garage/man cave that houses his treasured 2014 Corvette. Surrounded by tall trees and lovely landscaping, the van Leeuwen home is the retired couple’s dream. Jake and Ruth wish you all the best of the season from beautiful Southcott Pines.
