The towering columns supporting the covered front porch are reminiscent of many of the great southern plantations. Enjoy morning coffee on the front porch while watching the horses graze in their pastures. Upon entering the tiled foyer through the custom front door with sidelights and transom, you will be pleased to feel the comfort this home offers. The bright and sunny kitchen is centrally located with easy access to the living room or family room. Upgrades include Corian countertops with decorative tile backsplash and custom cabinets. Friends can sit at the breakfast counter while visiting with the chef. Access the rear covered veranda through the sliding glass doors in the breakfast room. Whitewashed Bamboo floors only enhance both the kitchen and breakfast room. Sneak down the back staircase off the breakfast room for a midnight snack.

The main floor has two guest bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms. Turn this into the master suite, should you desire a main floor master.

Two more guest rooms grace the second floor and share a bath with dual vanity. One bedroom also has access to the balcony. All of the bedrooms have plenty of closet space.
While the home is a warm and inviting place to spend time, the best place to do so would be enjoying the grounds and equestrian amenities. Horses are kept safe and comfortable in the fenced pastures with shade trees and a run-in shed or in the 6 stall barn. A turn-out paddock on each side of the barn is ideal for mare and foal. Dutch doors from a stall ensure escape from the weather if needed and a comfortable place to lie down and rest for the babies. Automatic waterers in the pastures provide a convenience to the owner and unlimited supply of fresh water for the farm animals. An in-law/guest house and a caretakers home round out this estate. All is conveniently located to town, shopping and dining.
