The southern exposure of the back of the home overlooks the protected wetlands & gives the home light & warmth throughout the day. Over 150 tons of natural limestone was brought in to create terraced gardens. Stone steps descend past the terraced gardens to a large 850sf patio w/fire pit & natural stone capped curved sitting wall creating a pavilion like atmosphere to take in the beautiful views of the wooded wildlife refuge bordering the lot. Off the patio is a much desired screened porch for late nights & an evening breeze. Outdoor lighting illuminates the home's exterior in the evening hours. The care & quality of the exterior are carried through to the interior starting w/quality construction.
