The lower level provides amazing storage, extra tall ceiling height and space for hobbies, workshop and wine storage. Originally built as the family home for local dairy farmer, the farm was sold in the 1940s to become a small airport. The home continued in use until approximately 1970 when the airport closed and the Skyline Complex was developed. At that time, the house was moved to its present site. In the 1990's the current owners hired the Moore Architectural firm to redesign the interior layout and add the master bedroom suite. A fabulous residence with a great history. Enjoy your tour and the joy of owning this one of a kind home.
