You've encountered a treasure! Authentic and gorgeous architecture- combining a loving restoration of quality craftsmanship with added designer renovations to serve the next 100 years. Nestled amongst heirloom landscaping and expansive private gardens, and served by towering trees, this charming wor...ld beyond the picket fence is seeking its next caretakers... Ascend the freshly painted steps of the Wrap-around Porch and a true "Welcome" awaits through the original doublewide Oak Doors!
