You are going to LOVE the woodburning stove in this house – and the kitchen – and the garden in the backyard.

The updated kitchen is so light and bright, with white cabinets and gorgeous marble countertops. The backyard is the perfect entertaining space, with a large deck and pergola begging for an evening of market lights and a perfect sunset. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms mean there’s plenty of room to spread out.

Thank you for your kind words. We loved working with you!

Rose is amazing “Super professional, very caring, and just a great person to work with. She was very understanding of my situation and hopes/dreams, and executed everything quickly and efficiently to make sure it all came together! Rose and Gina made a great team. Timely with paperwork, would text to make sure I saw emails to sign documents and relayed all my Q&As to appropriate parties. ABSOLUTELY would work with Rose again. 100% stoked on my new place”.
