“The location of the property is unique because it is on a fairly good street with normal traffic, but when you turn down the private drive, you have your own private oasis on 2 acres of wooded splendor, yet you’re close to everything,” says Realtor Anne Koons. The home’s backyard doesn’t disappoint, either, with an outdoor kitchen space, an in-ground pool, and spacious tennis and basketball courts.
