              Why the Owner Chose Austerlitz:
              This property is gorgeous, truly unique and filled with warmth. We cannot enjoy the house at this time but feel someone should since it is truly a special place.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              The Pond is truly Magical. In the evenings during a full moon watch the pond absolutely light up. The house is special, fully renovated and built to share memories with special friends and family.
