The homeowner dues pay your water bill.

Stone wood burning, masonry fireplace is literally the centerpiece of this home. Wraparound deck and travertine back patio with partially fenced yard gives you many places to relax outside. Large eat-in kitchen space. Room measurements are as good as I could get them (it's a octagon home....). Buyer to verify measurements.
