Rear-facing bedrooms have their own balcony. Much of the hardwood used for floors was harvested on the property and milled on-site. The home is abundant with storage and designed for entertaining.
No detail was spared by the owner, but the fixtures and finishes may not suite all tastes. The beautiful, yet hefty, acreage will require more upkeep than a typical backyard.

There is no basement or attic. A column and built-in bar in the oddly shaped living room might limit furniture placement.
