The cottage resides on seven acre property with many mature Live & Valley Oaks. There are several seasonal ponds as well as a large koi pond with a waterfall on the property. Mid May through mid September there is a 20'X 40' solar heated pool with ozone treatment to enjoy. A ping pong table is available for use and we enjoy frisbee golf with our friends as well. The cottage overlooks the koi pond and there is a variety of bird life to enjoy throughout the year. About 2.5 acres of the property are landscaped in some form; we have roses, fruit trees and a seasonal vegetable garden which we share with guests. There are many paths and benches to enjoy throughout the property.
The cottage itself is fully contained with full kitchen, shower with heated slate floor, dinning table and chairs, sofa, TV & internet access, and has a single bedroom with a queen bed and "space foam" mattress. The house is heated with baseboard heaters and enjoys floor and ceiling insulation and double paned windows with casements that may be opened. Electricity is provided by a 15 Kw Photo-voltaic system that meets our needs.
