Creativity Abounds!

With its charming historic colors, wide front porch, and perfectly landscaped front yard, this home is a showstopper. The front garden features all shade plants under a large willow oak. Unique finds grace the front porch.  The side yards leads through a charming work space to a large screened-in porch with more vintage salvaged finds. The periwinkle blue fence sets off all the perennials and sculptural flowers for a garden you won’t want to miss. Construction by Jim McCown.
