More than a nice property, this is a one of a kind experience that you'll always remember! Set on a hilltop in the middle of 40 acres, this house has magnificent mountain views all around.The property was a recent location of a lovely wedding and reception making beautiful use of the yard and first floor (note the 1st floor or basement is only accessible from a separate downstairs entrance).The second story is the main living area with 4 bedrooms, a full bathroom, open kitchen, dining and living room in a large great room with a stone fireplace, cathedral ceilings, a dining room table for 12, two wrought iron chandeliers and wood throughout. A complete wrap around porch provides views of the property's rolling hills and fields plus long range mountain views for sunsets that top it all! Two of the four bedrooms have French doors leading to the back screened in sun porch, a great spot for morning coffee! Scenic front yard has a tree swing. Take walks along the 1/4 mile driveway lined with apple trees and white fences, venture into the fields, or follow the low driveway past the basketball court to the pond. Enjoy a truly memorable stay at this unique mountain estate.
