We bought this property and built on it believing we would retire here. It is a magical place to live and the location is perfect – peaceful, private, surrounded in nature and yet minutes to groceries, movie theaters, restaurants and more.
Unfortunately, we need to move back out west for reasons we did not anticipate. This website is our way to share the beauty (and a bit of the history) of this unique property.
