If you are interested in a home with a rich history, able to fish off the back porch but have every modern amenity then there are few homes like this one. This home has been meticulously restored.

To maintain the character and history of the home many built ins were installed, and the restoration of one of the doors, that is now in the kitchen, as a pantry door on a barn door rider.
