The living room is incredibly inviting with a gas fireplace, true wooden beams, car-siding walls, wood-planked flooring, and gorgeous river views. The main floor bath room has a custom vanity and a custom 4x6 tiled walk-in shower with two shower heads. The oversized main floor laundry room doubles as a utility room and has plenty of space for additional cabinetry if so desired as it is over twenty-one feet long by over ten foot wide. A newer frontload Maytag washer and dryer are included with the purchase. The first floor living space is 1003.72 Sq. ft.
Both bedrooms are located on the second story of the residence. The entire flooring on the second story is cherry wood and the walls are finished in pine car-siding.

The second story living space is 739.44 Sq. ft.
While the kitchen is quaint, it is functional, and also offers a river view. A recently constructed pantry under the stairway provides an abundance of storage space for canned goods, spices, coolers, slow-cookers, etc. A refrigerator and gas stove are included with the purchase.

There are plenty of electrical outlets throughout the garage. There are also two 220v outlets, one installed on each side of the garage. The garage also offers incredible river views.
A screened-in porch with high ceilings that is over thirty-feet wide and overlooks the river and sunset, is the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by.
A hot tub, three wooden docks, boat lift, and jet ski lift are also included with the purchase.
