You can survey the country scenery from one of the two balconies or wrap around porch, and enjoy the tranquil sound of running water from the Houston Run stream which runs along the property. If relaxation is your main goal, enjoy a dip in the private in-ground pool (open Memorial Day to Labor Day), or spend time lying in the sun on the large patio surrounding the pool. The backyard features a large fire pit, flower gardens, and a swing set for the children’s enjoyment.
