The cascading landscape provides a nice retreat for walks around the property or s'mores at the firepit while being on quiet dirt road away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. This peaceful setting allows for privacy and enjoyment for larger families or multiple families with an adjoining guest apartment above the garage. The spacious bathrooms and living area are ideal for family getaways.

Exceptional time as always!! thank you.
We love the property layout. Its perfect. The improvements to expand the dining area which in turn expanded the living room is wonderful. The clearing of the trees through out the perimeter of the land expands the exceptional views and feel of the property. The master bedroom view and wrap around porch are our favorite features!
