Property description

The house is accessed from a small dirt road, part of a network of nearby like roads, wonderful for walking, running and biking. At the top of the driveway, the views to the north west are breath taking, but the house itself and the pool are nestled in a grassy meadow down hill of the road for privacy.
The inside is open in plan with a large eat in kitchen (fully equipped) giving onto an double height dining room which in turns opens onto the living room. Stairs and a gallery connecting the bedrooms above flank one wall of the central dining space. A ground floor guest room and full bath are handicapped accessible via the adjacent one car garage. On the second floor there are 3 double bedrooms, one bunk room that sleeps 3, a TV room/office that sleeps 2 and two full baths each w. double sinks, one with a jacuzzi and a separate shower.
There is an enclosed breakfast porch off the kitchen, a screened porch off the living room and a several decks.


Weddings: The house is ideal as a home base for a wedding party. Small weddings and/or rehearsal dinners for up to 40 people can happen within the house itself. Larger weddings require a tent to be installed on the lawn. We have had both kinds. The open kitchen is ideal for caterers, and trhere is plenty of parking on site in the field above the house. Wedding parties are required to take the house for a whole week, and there is an additional fee of $1000 for a wedding party.
