Brentwood resident Cathy Massoni, with her husband Anthony, bought the home nine years ago, graciously opened its doors a few weeks ago and let in some fresh air, a reporter and a photographer.
The wood floors creaked, most likely happy to have company shuffle about what decades ago was a busy farm home, while Cathy pointed out the pocket doors, sturdy handrails and small kitchen. She also let the walls do some talking themselves.
"There are no ghosts in here; this is a happy home," she assured.
