A family-centered home takes relaxing in nature and quality time to new heights.

For the Talberts, it was immediately evident that this was the perfect place to call home when they found it in 2006. As Tim Talbert shares, “We were looking for a home on the brow that also was in a neighborhood. It’s a ways out of town, so I get to decompress on the drive home, and it’s wooded enough to feel very private even though we’re surrounded by neighbors. The fact that the lot next door was also for sale was a big selling point. I planned to purchase it and expand as soon as we could if it was still available. So that was our goal.” It was a goal they accomplished after a few years, and now the lot next door holds their expansive garage which features multiple bays, their mother-in-law style apartment, and an epic man cave. The Talberts have patiently composed their family homestead and now raise their children in a serene mountain-top neighborhood with room for all kinds of family and friends to visit and stay.
