The outside ground of the house continues the theme of both relaxation and entertainment. A roughly 2000 square foot stone patio allows for a lot of possibilities. Most of the stone used in the making of the patio was taken from around the actual property.
As you go up the driveway to the house you will see the initial stone pathway. To your left will be a tiny man made frog pond complete with waterfall. Please be kind to the inhabitants if they decided to make an appearance and sit out on stones surrounding the pond. As the path winds around the house it opens up to the main portion of the patio. Big enough that it comfortably houses two very nice outdoor tables which sit off to either side of a large stone island with 5 burner drop in propane grill. For the charcoal enthusiast a Weber is provided on the deck as well.
In the far corner of the patio is a sunken hot tub that makes you feel like you are part of the forest. Terry cloth robes are provided for when you finish soaking while looking up at the stars. Descending from the main part of the deck down some wonderful stone steps you arrive at the fire pit. Get the s’mores and campfire stories ready while you sit on huge natural stone slabs that have sat on the property for ages. The deck is lined with both solar and electrical lighting. Pls note the hot tub has been damaged and wont be functional until Spring.
This home is perfect for all seasons.
