Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: I grew up on the land where my cabin is as a boy, and built the cabin last year. I'm a fireman/medic that decided to develop my family land in 1997 after studying new urbanism at Oxford in England. People seem to like to be in a place where you can walk to everything that you need- grocery store, restaurant, tavern, hair salon, trails, fields to walk your dog, etc. So I built my cabin where everything is easy to walk to and yet you have a secluded little slice of nature surrounding your cabin allowing you to relax and enjoy your tranquil surroundings. I love the view of Camp Branch Creek with the sound of babbling water and birds singing invites you to kick back and enjoy the elements that I have thoughtfully put together to create this very special place called Cheshire after my grandmother's family name.
