What the seller loves about this home
The deep front porch is one of the most appealing features to this home. Our family gathers here to tell stories and laugh. The smell of Mom’s cooking inside and memories of canning tomatoes from the garden. There’s even a great pull out pantry that can store tons of canned product from the garden. We gather eggs in the morning and lived a simply wonderful life here on the island.
