The most outstanding feature is the outdoor space. Whether enjoying time with family or hosting lavish events, it is the ideal location for any occasion. The backyard was envisioned as an entertainment mecca for friends, family or quiet evenings enjoyed from the three-season room or the patio next to the enchanting koi pond. Experience tranquil nights and superior sunsets from the private pool deck and cabana surrounded by fragrant Zephyr rose bushes. The in-ground swimming pool has been re-plastered with new coping, filter, and pump and was converted to salt water in 2018. In addition to mature foliage such as black oak trees, magnolia bushes, pink dogwoods, cherry trees and Japanese maples, the current owners used a portion of the 3.68 acres as a blackberry farm which yielded an annual crop of pick your own blackberries. Recent home improvements include new air conditioner with 10 year transferrable warranty, main house basement renovation with new carpet, ceiling panels and fresh paint, new sump pump, new hot water heater in guest house, newly remodeled owner’s suite bathroom, kitchen, breakfast area, laundry room and lower level bathroom in main house, and 2018 roof on main house.
