40 Saules was a private home before World War II.┬áThe Current owner’s family lived here.

The patriarch of the family, Janis Mucinieks, was the weightlighting champion of Latvia.

The family escaped from the conflicts of war on a small boat in 1944. The property fell into disrepair after the war.

The owner’s mother was an actress in the United States and was also busy raising a family.

Recently a total renovation was done.
