Along with the main house are a restored former kitchen house and carriage house with additional guest quarters and a reconstructed tack house containing all the mechanicals for the property. The 1.25-acre property has expansive gardens, a newly built pool house, salt water gunite pool with infinity edge all beautifully maintained.
