The kitchen is spacious and well stocked, and it's easy to cook and converse with folks in the common space. There is a large dining table that can be expanded to seat 12, as well as 2 comfortable couches, and armchairs by the cozy indoor gas stove. The central heat and A/C work great.
A sunny deck with 5-person hot tub, outdoor shower, and retractable shade-awning overlooks a beautiful wooded ridge beyond the enclosed back yard. Outdoor picnic table and benches are perfect for breakfast or dinner and several zero-gravity chairs make for great outdoor lounging or reading.
On the other side of the house, a brand new, elegant, large swimming pool blends beautifully with the natural forest setting. Solar heat allows swimming from May through September.
