1943 Bungalow

Built in 1943 with a concrete block foundation overlaid with large railroad ties to hold the framing for the house.

Cool Front Porch

What a way it would be, to spend a hot Summer's day here on a cool shady porch. A nice cup or glass of your favorite beverage in hand, sitting in a relaxing easy chair and listening to the running of a clear cool brook in the ravine below just a couple of yards off the front of your porch.

Sigh, if only this were mine...
