What the seller loves about the house

"Having so many different functional rooms, both inside and out, is so wonderful, whether it is family and friends over for a BBQ, a glass of wine in the courtyard in the afternoon, kids in the rumpus, or having a quiet moment of peace in the master bedroom. It is the perfect house for entertaining large groups, or for a family to spread out and have space to grow."
