  • Stone walkways encircle the house; an occasional few stone steps up or down add charm; retaining walls terrace the landscaping; Nature paths wind through wooded areas and offer a special place for reflection and relaxation
  • 5328 Three Waters Lane shares a sparkling clear pond with just a few other property owners in Hedgerows, it is not a community pond so seldom are others present; this property's private dock is perfect for sunning on the water, jumping into the pond or getting into a canoe or small boat (no motors permitted) 
  • This property is attractive to those with horses, offering 3 pastures which connect and can be separated by gates; in all there are 7 wide gates and 2 pedestrian gates. Prior to fencing, the sellers had the Agricultural Extension Agent come and examine the soils, then supplemented the pastures per his recommendation. Each pasture has it's own auto waterer directly plumbed from the well providing continuous fresh water for horses or other livestock.
  • Once good pasture was established, cows were kept on the property for several years. All the cows would be rotated into fresh pasture while other pasture recovered. There is a cattle corral with an exclusion gate and there was a squeeze shoot which has been removed but space remains to insert one. Of course the pasture arrangement is equally well designed to accommodate goats, sheep, etc.in addition to horses or cows. Covenants appear to prohibit only swine and state that “...Horses, cows, goats, ducks, geese, chickens and all other fowl, dogs and cats...” are specifically allowed
  • Open style barn could easily be divided into several stalls for horses or other livestock; includes hayloft and extended shed roof on 3 sides for equipment storage
