A large wraparound porch is perfect for enjoying the sunset or playing cards on a summer evening with the Buttes as your background.
Big Springs Gardens offers a peaceful setting and tranquil ambiance. Light, sunny and bright throughout the home and surrounding grounds, you will overlook the towering evergreens shading the trails that take explorers in every direction through the well-cared for forest floor and garden.
