Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Migrated north from Virginia after buying Heron House as a summer house, to be closer when we can make it.

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
Heron House met all our expectations and visions of a woodland and lakeland all-season home; weeds, water, rocks, and tranquility. We loved the bird-watching; the possibilities for photography, painting, reading. Honeymooners welcome.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Family reunions have been a big hit.
