You’ll find ample windows throughout the home, which is a feature I always love in any house. Simple furnishings create a clean, uncluttered look.

  1. Oh my! Could it be any more light and airy, or more welcoming and comfortable? Who wouldn’t want to live there? And of course the screened porch I’ve always dreamed of. Lovely.

  2. Lovely home and so very peaceful, i would imagine a fire would change anyone’s way of living. They did a wonderful job.

  3. We’ve had about 6 fires due to lightening near our home in the past few years. I get my bags packed and ready when there is a storm near by.
    This house is just beautiful! What a great re-do!
