This Bixler Church home will make you feel as if you are on vacation year round. Built of white cedar and glass, the changing views from season to season are absolutely spectacular.

The 3500' of finished space makes fabulous use of three floors.

A gourmet kitchen with walnut center island, granite counters, decks for dining alfresco or watching the birds as you sip your morning coffee.
