Each of the guest bedrooms on the main floor have their own look. One is paneled in native Ash and the other in Redwood. The later room may also serve as an office, as it has plenty of cabinetry and setup for office equipment.

The lower level of the house is also on ground level, at the rear. Here you will find the guest suite. This space has its own bed room, full bath, living space and kitchen area. It has its private entrance and its own stone fireplace. Off of this space there is an abundant storage gas fired furnace & a/c two water heaters and a FIVE CAR Garage.

Mr. Picklesimer was able to realize his wifes dream. With this home and property she and Mr. Picklesimer so enjoyed all whom visited.
