The dining patio is flanked by large granite boulders, directly accessible via the bonus room, connected to extensive redwood decking and located within the fenced yard. ~100 year old productive plum trees sweeten the view.
Stylish and Comfortable Interior
The living room is located in the oldest part of the house and has a very large convection style flagstone fireplace. With wood floors and original wooden beams in the ceiling, you'll want to cozy up and watch the deer and elk walk by.
Views, Views and More Views
Pull into the circular driveway and be amazed at the gorgeous flagstone entrance. Quaking aspen, tons of bulb flowers and blue spruce set the stage for fine country living. 1000+ Ft of Redwood Decking makes for fine outdoor entertaining.
The vaulted ceiling, floor to ceiling windows, natural wood walls and extensive rockwork make the sun room a perfect entrance to a really great home.
Fenced yard - great for pets and kids! Ponderosa pine forest with hidden valleys and south facing orientation are just a few of the many wonders this property holds.
