Ellen and I built this house some years ago as a place to get away from the hectic life of New Jersey. Now that we are both retired from the telecommunications industry and travel to see our 10 grandchildren all over the US, we want to share this beauty with others who will appreciate it. The construction of the house is unique and all of the wood still smells as it did when we first built it. Because it is our second home, it has been kept in excellent condition. When we are here we use the park almost every day and enjoy exploring other towns nearby.
Although it is a somewhat long drive from NJ, this whole area has a certain mystique about it---slower pace, cleaner outdoors, healthier atmosphere. This home has that relaxed feeling also. We fell in love with the whole area after the first time we were here.
