Everything about this home was designed for relaxation and enjoyment. There will be no reason to leave! From a master bedroom with furniture made from a local furniture maker to the living space designed by a Feng Shui expert, you can feel the care put into this home.
The house also includes a saltwater pool, fire pit, and table tennis. In addition, the master bedroom includes a sliding glass door that opens onto a deck with an outdoor tub. Most nights you can enjoy the tub under moonlight while listening to the owls around you. This beautiful oasis is also in a great location.
