Property Description

Welcome to Tara with unobstructed golf course views, amazing grounds, perennial gardens, and space for everyone!

The current owner added a self contained apartment addition in 2011 on the main floor off the library overlooking the golf course, featuring a living room, kitchenette, 1st floor bedroom, and full bath with zero-threshold shower. Off the kitchen is a private bedroom, bath and sitting room on the 2nd floor, separate from the 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor.
