The home features 'Green' building features such as No VOC wax finish on the Fir Floors floors, and Low VOC finish materials. Our vision was to provide a Restorative Sanctuary. Judging by our reviews here, and comments we have had in the past, we've hit the mark.

We also have a separate cottage near the property with its own garage, Japanese maples throughout, bamboo garden with hot tub, 2 person slate shower, cherry floors and cabinets with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.
