    Feeling a bit silly right about now, but can someone tell me what/where are the (3) 95” Rosetta ornamented fluted windows? I’m not sure exactly what I’m looking for but I am not seeing them. Thanks

    The kitchen is mentioned in the description but no photos are included….. Nice place though.

    Silly me – how do I “favorite” a house? I am logged in but don’t find that option. Please and thank you.

    I’m confused. Are these recent pictures? It’s states that there are 2 large A/C units installed however I see window unit A/C’s also what’s with the black extension cords running on the wall?
    These are found in the pictures from the realtor.com link?

      The Facebook page linked up top are the most recent photos from April. I don’t know how old the photos are on Realtor.com.

      The owner had two window units put in because her brother (who used to live there) was very sensitive to heat. Here is a link to see the 2 large A/C units. You’ll notice some bees in the video, the bees have been professionally removed after briefly setting up shot in a nearby tree. LOL. https://photos.app.goo.gl/OIvvxwuthn38NXJx2

      The photos we have were taken in March and April of this year. See my comments below for a link to see the HVAC units. There are two (not window units). The window units are there for someone with extreme heat sensitivity. So, they had that in case the individual was overheated. The two HVAC units work well.

      Afternoon All, It looks like they are black cables for TV etc. not electric. The cable people usually do not bother to try and hide the cables (unless you are watching them) doing the installation with the least amount of work for them. When we bought the house in Texas it was amazing what some of them had done. The first job was to rip it all out and start over burying the cable in the walls and if not possible run it outside.
      The light fixtures are to die for even if reproductions they cost a lot of money.
      I know about the air conditioners.I have a heart condition and can’t have a bottom fridge cause if a seizure happens the best place to get is somewhere cold and dry (like in front of a air conditioner or freezer). I know it sounds silly but it works every time till help arrives.
      I wish my house was that clean and polished.

    The driveway is evidently new with 4-inch asphalt. You can see the owner explain in a little video clip here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/QX6H34spqjpbYi8Y2 I was trying to do some videos that we ultimately did not share widely. But most questions can be answered with some video footage that I’ve recorded around the house. So, feel free to ask any questions and I’ll be happy to answer!
