Hand Crafted Elegance
This custom designed home is nestled among beautifully landscaped gardens in a very private setting, and often on the local garden tour. It was designed and built by the owners with comfort and quality at every turn. Reclaimed wood was used to add a personal touch. The house features a unique altar railing from a 19th century local stone church. Much of the reclaimed wood, from vintage buildings, adds to the charming ambiance of this romantic home.
