PRIVACY is an understatement in this mountain-style RETREAT–sip sweet tea while relaxing on the large DECK (NEW in 2018 and is considered the front of the home.) and listen to the rustling water of Buckhorn Creek and the birds chirping from the abundance of mature trees surrounding the property. Amble down to the SPRING – FED POND, complete with dock, and throw out the fishing line, or hang out for a picnic – super quiet back here – get those relaxing moments you need alone or with your kids. An old rope swing on a towering tree over the water is always a big hit with the youngsters. The wooded areas are perfect for carving out great hiking paths! You can access the pond via a short path or a primitive road from the barn up and around the pond. HORSE OWNERS - pastures in the level area by the creek has a 3-stall barn and the previous owners had horses.
