An additional extensive list of recent improvements was also completed this past year. The sun-filled main residence, charming guest houses entertainment barn, pool and tennis court, effortlessly serve as fabulous living and gathering spaces while the original clock tower building efficiently functions as a well-outfitted, high-tech business headquarters with multiple offices, kitchen, 2 bathrooms and board rooms.
