The roof is all new within the last year with an exterior painting planned for the spring, just in time for the new owners to pick their colors! Additional features include wrought iron fencing, stone driveway with stacked parking for up to 3 cars, storage building with unfinished loft area, outside shower, brick paver patio and manicured lawn & gardens.
