Breathtaking Vistas

The beauty of Longview is undeniable. Manicured lawns provide a bucolic accent to the rolling hills and vales visible from the myriad windows found throughout the home and provide the changing natural canvas from which to enjoy the sunsets and seasons. A beautiful red brick patio and path surround the home, while specimen plantings, rock gardens, native plants, a brook and a pond, a perennial garden and even a vegetable garden adorn the grounds.
