You’ll enjoy the mountain view while relaxing with a glowing fire in the gas log fireplace. The open floor plan has a kitchen with hickory cabinets, tile counter tops, black appliances. A pantry in the kitchen for storing your food items is a plus.  Half bathroom connects the kitchen to the master bathroom.  Convenient one floor living is here… what’s missing is you!

A spacious front porch is ideal for your rocking chairs (seller is conveying the swing to the new owner!)… it doesn’t get any better than this with the serenity found here!  On the exterior of the home is a mechanical room housing the 50 gallon hot water heater, in-line water filter, well pressure tank, and a small work bench suitable for working on some of your projects.  A short distance is a fire pit with custom wood table, benches for gathering with friends, or family.
