Property Photo


Built in 1913, this historic homestead, known as The Wilcox Place, is nestled within 2.81 landscaped acres at the foothills with a winter mountain view. The entry level is country style with a bright foyer and an adjacent office. The main level is ground level with the back gardens. The living room is 30 feet long and is wainscoted-encapsulated with small, richly hued boards accented by a stone fireplace. In a former attic space is a newly created bedroom suite. The bright kitchen opens onto a garden deck. At some point in time, the bedroom wing was separate but has since been joined by an enclosed breezeway that opens to a stone, garden terrace. There is a fireplace in the master bedroom, and a second bedroom is joined by a den. The old hen house has been converted into very comfortable guest quarters from which visitors must be forcefully evicted! The entire property has been professionally fenced and is secure for all makes and models of dogs; diggers and climbers.
