Mr. Montandon has admired the Beiger Mansion for most of his life.

I knew, even then, that one day I had to own it.” Having purchased and restored several homes in the area Mr. Montandon was able to purchase his lifelong dream home, the mansion, in 1989. The restoration of the Beiger Mansion has since become his greatest passion in life, a pursuit of over 25 loving years.
