This home was rebuilt/rehabbed in 1998 with most of the home built as new and the remainder rehabbed to create this expansive oasis of relaxation. Are you tired of the fast pace life? Need to get away but too busy? Why drive countless hours or spend agonizing time getting through airport security when your home can be your own personal vacation spot? Working from home these days? Not a problem; work in one half of the home and relax on the other side. This serene, vacation-style spa-inspired home is close to the city but offers you the opportunity to go horseback riding right down the street. Kayaking, biking, jogging, or just walking your dog in a calm environment without having to leave town. Why spend the money on a luxurious vacation when you can have your own pool and tennis courts complete with a bathhouse, all without even leaving your own personal enclave. This expansive 7,000 plus sqft estate is a solid home built and built by a reputable carpenter and sits on 1.5 acres of peaceful privacy. No corners were cut on this quality home!
