PROPERTY AND GROUNDS
A series of paved and gravel paths wends its way about the nearly 2 acre property, stopping off at gardens both formal and informal and at a naturalistic waterfall with its own seating area. Gorgeous mature specimen trees include Japanese Maples, Magnolias and Dogwoods, and are carefully integrated with the property’s native cedars and fi rs to provide dappled light and sheltering shade without disrupting the home’s great siting for natural light. A large wooden RV storage area out back is perfect for conversion into an art studio or private retreat, while a fully fi nished 3 car garage with high ceilings is currently divided to allow for a studio space with storage and all mechanical systems. This singular home’s fabulous hilltop location allows for yearround light complimenting its forested surroundings, and invites its owners to enjoy the quiet of an almost rural environment in which the relaxing sounds of passing horses are as common as traffi c noise in other areas.
