Once a quaint little farmhouse, built in 1952, this lovely bungalow was once a country home with wood clapboard siding on a property of over 100 acres. It now sits placidly on 5 pastoral acres, secluded and serene. It is within city limits but it feels like the country. The home has an updated Mediterranean look, with stucco, stone, a cupola, and arches. Peacefully poised amid tall oak trees, the little house is colorful, comfortable, clean, and cozy!

The interior of the home has been completely modernized with new, green and energy-efficient materials and appliances.
There are three bedrooms in the home. Two have queen size beds, the third has twin beds. There is also a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room, so the home can accommodate up to 8 guests in total. There are two full bathrooms and a washer and dryer for your convenience. The great room is divided into a living area, dining area, and small corner office space. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, dinnerware, utensils, and a small selection of commonly used condiments for your convenience.
The living room has a 42' LCD TV with Dish Network and DVR for your pleasure! Watch the game, record your favorite TV shows, or enjoy one of the many DVD's in the video library. We've provided a Wii system and a couple of games for your kids, or use the Wii Fit to make up for missing your workout! There is a small stereo and some CD's for your use, as well as a small collection of books if you just want to chill and enjoy the quietude.
The overall size of the home is 1200 square feet (heated/cooled area). The rooms, while small, are comfortable. The term most guests have used to describe it is 'cozy'.
Are you an art lover? We hope you will appreciate the original art that adorns the walls in this little home.
If you have allergies, you'll be pleased to know that the home has all wood and tile floors, with few area rugs. Pets are not allowed and there is no smoking allowed in the house or on the property.
The front of the house has a small porch with rocking chairs so that you can sit outside and appreciate the views. Bordering the backyard is a wooded area, which lends a touch of privacy. There is a stone patio in the backyard, with a canopy/gazebo and patio furniture. A charcoal barbecue grill, with charcoal and lighter fluid, is provided.
Whether you're visiting for a weekend or a month, you'll find this home 'just right'. Sit on the front porch in the evening and you might see one of the red tail hawks that live on the property. Or, maybe the pair of owls that visit frequently. Coyotes, raccoons, and an occasional armadillo or roadrunner can also be seen as the sun dips down on the horizon.
The owner's home is next door, in case you should need anything to make your stay more enjoyable. Please note that our vacation rental is not suited for parties or large gatherings, due to the proximity to our own home. If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay, this is it.
In addition to the one-car garage with garage door opener (which has a handy entry keypad), there is a parking area in front of the house, just beyond the trees. If you're concerned about privacy, there is rarely traffic on the dead-end road (which is a private drive). In addition, we have a driveway sensor and security cameras, so the owner is aware when vehicles arrive and depart.
All items in the bungalow are inventoried. When you make your reservation, you will be sent a contract, house rules, and a partial list of items/amenities provided for your use (so that you don't have to bring the kitchen sink with you!).
