About the owner: Native New Yorker, currently living in California. We used this house for ourselves for weekends and vacations for years, since relocating we are now renting for seasonal use.
Why the Owner Chose Olive: The house is very centrally located, easy to get to, yet quiet and surrounded by nature. You'll feel a million miles away, yet less than 15 minutes to places people drive hours to see.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This is a great house for relaxing or entertaining. Inside is full of light, with ceiling fans to circulate the heat from wood stove or cool it off just enough in summer.
In spring, summer and fall the back deck, screened in porch and large yard are like a slice of paradise. There is a small stream that usually runs in springtime. The fire ring and benches sit alongside the stream.
