We have a huge family with 20 grandchildren, so we built around the idea of having everyone over on weekends and holidays. Why did you choose the location? We chose this secluded, peaceful location so the children could run and play at will. With acres and acres of communal space, there’s always a lot to do with fishing, boating, hunting and even raising chickens. What is a unique feature of the property? The ancient oaks on the river’s edge and incredible sunsets make this a special spot to live. What are some of your favorite spaces? Since we cook, the kitchen is a major hub where everyone gathers. Since this is a family of sports lovers, the television area with several on the wall for multiple games is another favorite spot for the guys. I prefer to read a good book and have coffee with Bailey’s Irish Cream in the library.
