About the Property

This home is a special place to us & has been in our family for over 50 years. Over the years we have made many updates to the home. The location is a 3 acre waterfront setting, on Cox Creek, that features incredible western views along with gorgeous sunsets. Relaxing in the 3 season sun room and watching the sunset is a must!

The home has approx 2500 square feet, a wonderful Great Room with 46' HDTV w/cable, fireplace, large Dining Room table that seats 10, & eat-in kitchen. There is a spacious Master Bedroom (queen bed) + Master Bath, Bedroom #2 has a queen bed, Bed #3 has 2 twin beds, Bedroom #4 is also the den off the Great Room & has a pullout sofa bed.
