Situated on over 1/3 acre double lot within Ridge Historic District, this new home offers exceptional interiors, huge gorgeous yard + patio, quality construction, plus state-of-the-art technology. Designed and built by Bill James who spared no expense. Extensive landscape lighting of the limestone entry, west facade & stone cascading water wall yard sculpture complement the Dryden mansion and grounds creating a magical setting. Over $30,000 of professional landscaping using mature trees and shrubs, provide beauty and privacy for you to enjoy from inside & out via custom hi-end Marvin floor-to-ceiling windows and 3 sets of French doors. The exterior materials such as butternut face brick and limestone, green metal roof, elaborate copper rain collection boxes, downspouts & trim speak easy-to-maintain quality.
