What I love about this home
This house highlights the beauty of laid-back country living. The lot is peaceful and beautifully landscaped and has been very well maintained throughout the years, offering lots of privacy. It’s a close drive to larger nearby towns which makes shopping and entertainment convenient. With over 16 rooms, this house is perfect for entertaining yet easy to maintain. While it has many updated features–Such as the kitchen and laundry room–Many of the fixtures and hardware are still original.
