The Ranch Property:  

Unique, elegant and stunningly beautiful 20 acre +/- ranch estate. The home took its design inspiration from the Grecian Revival era of architecture in the early years of our country’s formation (1810 – 1840).

For those seeking a finer quality of life ~ the breathtaking 360˚ views are matched by the exceptional craftsmanship, stunning beauty and unparalleled attention to detail throughout this property.

The home had a stunning remodel and update in 2005-2006 and blends traditional influences with all the modern conveniences. At that time the infra structure and operational parts of the ranch were updated and improved. The barn and second residence were also updated at that time.
