The house is perfectly positioned to take advantage of lovely views of Mill Creek which meanders through the grounds. Sit on the rear patio in summer & enjoy total tranquility, while the little ones fish in the creek or play in the backyard. The flagstone path that wraps around is great for walking, jogging & riding bikes or scooters. There's also a zip line which goes over the creek!
