Property description

Lovely historic home with two bedrooms and one bath. The house has its old charm with some modern renovations. The house was built in 1912 from beautiful old growth pine. Wood floors are throughout the house. We have a beautiful dining room to entertain or to just enjoy each other. The living room has two comfy Moroccan daybeds to hang out or sleep on. The kitchen is renovated with an artsy mosaic floor and sitting nook. The master bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and closet space with a little room attached that can be an office or sleep a child. The second bedroom has a full sized bed and closet space. The house sleeps six. There are sitting areas in both front and back porches. The backyard is fenced and has a spacious entertaining area with deck, bar, and outdoor dining table. In addition, we have a beautiful outside shower and antique cast iron tub to enjoy the outdoors. We also have a lush active nursery. Throughout the yard enjoy mango, mulberry, sour orange, papaya, and of course plenty of bananas trees.
