Why This Property?
" OMG, you're in THAT house? I LOVE that house!"
It's one of the most recognizable houses in town. The views are absolutely stunning, at every time of the day. On summer days, it's sunny mountains, no humidity, and green, green, green. From 5:00-8:00PM every summer night, a progressively heightening golden glow settles over the property as the sun sets.
"I've always wanted to see what the inside of that house looks like..."
The screened porch is pretty much the center of the universe each night. We bar-b-que on the deck and eat outside regularly. A few times a week, we have campfires in the stone fire pit. It's built into the hill, so there's plenty of places to sit and enjoy the awesome smell of woodsmoke with friends around the fire. Stacks of wood are always available to fuel the flame, and of course, there's music.
Many nights we'll get marshmallows and Cornish hens and just cook right on the open flames. The sun sets over the mountain peaks across the valley and we always "cheer" to the last light of day. Then you've got a good hour to watch nightfall settle. The frogs start a chorus, lightning bugs occasionally light up the fields, and the stars come out. The air is so dry and clear that you can enjoy endless stars, the milky way, shooting stars, and (if we believe the locals) occasional UFO sightings. We think they are crazy, but who knows! Most mornings, the mountain tops are buried in mysterious clouds, and then by 10:00AM the clouds burn off. We can get incredible thunder storms that pass through mid-day, and then the sun comes right back out. In the fall, the entire region turns to gold, orange, and red. Our British business partner said it best:
"I've traveled all over the world and I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful piece of property."
