This exquisite property is situated on 1.52 beautifully landscaped acres, complete with terraced natural stone patios, a gorgeous heated gunite pool and spectacular views of the professionally landscaped property and nearby countryside. The current owners have taken every detail into consideration when renovating and restoring this very special property.

Complete with wet bar and french doors to the patio and pool. The sun filled gourmet eat-in kitchen with vaulted ceiling and professional grade appliances is every homeowners dream!
