This property was owned by one of the original landowners of this area. The family carefully selected this beautiful piece of land for their daughter, and the father built the house himself in the 1920s. The creek is prolific, and the land is vast with a natural aquifer high up in the back of the property that could perhaps be used to make a large pond. The acreage is full of natural beauty – giant ferns and azaleas flank the house, a fragrant lilac tree blooms in the spring, apple trees, lilies, daffodils, poppies and peonies grow wild. Scroll through the above gallery to see the property in it’s verdant summer glory.
