Please keep in mind this is a rural country home. We have softened well water (not city water that is chemically treated) and a sensitive septic system. We are located ½ mile from a local dairy farm, so given the direction and speed of the wind, there may sometimes be a fragrant breeze from our cow friends. We have all kinds of nature living harmoniously within our area, including deer, squirrel, raccoon, opossum, fox, coyote, hawk, bald eagles, mosquitos, flies, and other insects. You may see and hear tractors during the daytime hours on the roadways and in the fields during planting and harvest season. This location is perfect for a peaceful evening stroll down the country road after dinner or for an early morning jog to start your day.
Our home is quiet, clean and very simplistic. We provide a thermostatically controlled environment with heat and air conditioning, however all windows open to enjoy the wonderful country breeze in the warmer months if you so desire.
