Gilroy Today story by Larry J.Mickartz
In 1981 John and Rachel Perez bought property in the east side foothills. After years of planning and construction they are now enjoying their dream home. The house is large at 7,100 square feet. It has five bedrooms, seven baths, an indoor spa/exercise tub, multipurpose media room, office meeting room and most of the things one would expect in a large house. But it has one other feature that makes it truly unique…it is home to an extensive collection of American Indian, southwest and Mexican art. Everywhere there are unique museum-quality pieces. In fact, during the building phase, many additional nooks, shelves and display areas were created to house specific pieces of this endless collection.
