                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: I have made a career in the fire service for over 20 years in central Florida. My wife works full time working with people. We are looking forward to retirement in Franklin N.C. Lots of love has been put into 'Fireman's Dream' We pray that your stay at 'Fireman's Dream' will be as life changing as both of ours has been.

                      Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
                      We came to Franklin 3 years ago and fell in love with the area and people. Working in the fast pace of central Florida we were looking for a quite place to retire. We found it in Franklin N.C. We fell in love with what is now called 'Fireman's Dream'. Peace of mind is what you will find here.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      What we enjoy most about our home is the beautiful 4 acres, and the layout of the property. Our rocking chairs on the porch and the privacy we have is amazing!
