Part of the attraction to this house was the area it is in. It’s surrounded by 27 acres of nature preserve. This includes woods, wetlands, and the beach. There are critters everywhere , which I absolutely LOVE! We’ve only been here a week and I’ve already spotted a lot of animals…most of them right up on our deck! The first day I was here I put some seed out on the deck and almost immediately cardinals, blue jays, doves, a woodpecker, and blackbirds flew down to eat…I knew then that I was going to love it here. 🙂 I love looking out the kitchen window and seeing this!
