    "We live a few doors down from this house and have since 1995. The owners have always taking extremely good care of their home and maintained a beautiful yard. (We are all very sorry to see them move.) Once you have lived on the lake you are spoiled for life. You not only have the peaceful, serene views of the lake, but the gorgeous views of the park and hills on the other side. You can enjoy fishing, sailing, kayaking, etc. anytime you want. Truly a lovely area and lovingly maintained home."
