Starting on the outside, the owners have slate walkway leading to a custom built portico, covered front porch with columns. The landscaping is thick and blends well with the natural growth along the wooded backyard. Majestic trees are your backdrop on the .44 acre lot and then runs into the thick woods of the common area behind the property. Private, serene and you can be very in touch with nature while you sit out on your screened covered rear porch 24x18. So much room for furnishings, tables, roughed in for TV and speakers.
