This house was purchased from a family member and some remoldeling has taken place on the inside to make it more appealing and usable. Living in the area for over 50 years has been rewarding in meeting new people and making it easy to stay in touch with ole friends.
This property has been in the family for many years and we want to keep it that way.. We have everything here except for the ocean, and being able to see the beautiful mountains around us everyday is such a treat. It's wonderful how the community comes together and stands together on different issues. I just like to call it home.
This home has character, it's style is fun and it has so much room inside. To be able to have a place that is safe and relaxing for folks to visit and feel like their at home is and has been our goal. When guests tell you they want to stay and not go is very rewarding, knowing that they love it here as much as we do. The yard is amazing with this house, it has a built in firplace which has been here for over 50 years and it's usable, you can cook on it and relax in the yard, watch the deer as they come to feed off the apple trees,sit back and see the mountain peeks around you, in the evening look up and count the stars, there is so much to enjoy here!!
