Step inside to discover a sanctuary where modern convenience meets rustic charm. The floor plan unfolds effortlessly, offering a spacious living room, a cozy kitchen, a restful bedroom, and a rejuvenating bath. Behind the facade of simplicity lies meticulous attention to detail – the water heater discreetly tucked away, the shower enveloped in waterproof plaster, each element meticulously curated for comfort and functionality.

As custodians of the land, the owners’ reverence for nature permeates every decision.
