Keep cool, active and entertained all summer long in the sparkling blue water of the 16 x 32 inground saltwater swimming pool, complete with waterfall. The heater allows you to extend the swimming season and the liner was replaced in 2016 for your convenience. “Catch some rays” on the expansive stone patio”. The stone retaining wall creates a nice separation between the pool and the green space and the trees create lots of shade and privacy. Barbecue or dine “al fresco” on the deck, or curl up with a book on the second deck off the master. Lattice on both decks ensures your privacy. Fully fenced, with gates on both sides of the home, this is the perfect backyard oasis.
