The backyard is AMAZING with another rocking chair porch, large stone patio, stacked stone fire pit, and a large, fenced flat grassy yard. There’s additional storage space in the wired shed, or convert it to be a workshop, studio, or your new “she” shed! The irrigation system makes watering your backyard oasis a breeze. The fence has the open wood look, but with the security of wire backing for Fido to not wander. The back gate allows you private access to the tranquil woods beyond and Nancy Creek.
