Beautiful warm wood flooring covers both levels of the home making for easy maintenance and also adds to the wonderful, open feel.Downstairs there is a full bathroom with roll-in shower for those in need of extra care, and the den can easily be converted to a first floor bedroom for convenience as well. Upstairs you will find four spacious bedrooms, one being the main bedroom, with en-suite bath and jacuzzi tub and a balcony to take in the beautiful sunsets. A whole house attic fan will keep the mountain air circulating on those summer days and the back deck offers the best views of the distant Butternut Valley. The unfinished basement is ready to be transformed into a game room or workshop but with two large out-buildings there is room to spare for everyone.
