Sitting off the roadway behind tall green shrubs, the property appears unassuming from street view, with only the hint of the butterfly roof visible through the landscape. With a second hedgerow outlining the driveway leading to the detached two-car garage, this home offers plenty of privacy despite being located in a community without walls or fences. The entry gate leads visitors to the north-facing patio off of the kitchen and dining room, while the front door to the property is on the side of the home.
