Watch fish jump, and ducks swim through the mirrored reflection of sunset skies, directly from the home’s large backyard deck with built-in fire pit. Sightings of elk, deer, and fox are common, and migratory birds cross the sky each spring and fall. Whatever your hobbies include, this incredible property can accommodate any outdoor enthusiast’s adventure. Horses and other livestock graze among acres of fenced pastureland, adjacent to two well-maintained riding arenas.
