    This house was built in 1940 of the best timber (and without scrimping) with all the best construction methods of the time. It has been updated over the years to make a most comfortable home.

    There are four huge bedrooms, with one being used as a sewing/hobby room. Queen beds on two and double in the other.  There is a sofa bed as well.

    The main level includes the living room (with large TV), dining area (with attached seating area), kitchen, sunroom/breakfast room, and the guest bedroom. If a guest is  unable to climb the stairs, they could live comfortably on the main level.

    There is a bathroom on both floors, and laundry and garage are downstairs.
