Mountain View Lot:
Prospect Point is one of the few gated communities in this area. All lots are large to ensure privacy and some elbowroom. The paved road is leading you gently up the mountain, ending up right at the lot that is located at the cul-de-sac. The mountain view is fantastic and with some selective clearing, it would be even more stunning. https://vimeo.com/517229283/f2f1cedbd9View Listing
Under Contract: Old foaling barn, a Landrum gem
Originally built circa 1950 as a horse barn, this dwelling served in that capacity for almost 40 years. It was in the late 1980s that an artistic new owner made an enlightened transformation. With the Foothills vernacular as the architectural guide, the barn structure and spirit were preserved. The support columns and beams were left exposed, a master suite, country-style kitchen, and a two-car garage attached. The feed room became the guest suite, and a portion of the hayloft a cozy nook overlooking the great room.View Listing
