As winter presses on and depletes us in more ways than one, it is a respite to daydream about the warm seasons ahead of us. We promise ourselves that we will take advantage of every warm ray of sunshine and never complain about the extremes of summer. I have always said that it is always more than the house. What I am usually referring to would be the local amenities and attractions in the community.

In the case of 220 Byram Lake Road, a stroll away from this classic luxurious home are two amazing outbuildings that will extend your enjoyment of the house and property throughout the year.  These photos will only enhance your thoughts of a warmer climate!

The piece de resistance is the Pool area which boasts a salt water pool, surrounded by private gardens, an outdoor shower, inviting patio and then the Pool House. This idyllic retreat is warmed by both radiant heated floors and a wood burning fireplace for those non High Summer days. The Great Room has soaring ceilings with double doors out to both the pool and to the Party Barn. There is a kitchenette, full bath and a Changing/Guest Room.

A Finished Barn which I refer to as the Party Barn can also serve as an art studio. The owner said her children used to host their own New Year's Eve Parties and more in that welcoming spot.

Enjoy the full Video of the Property.
