Originally Lot 209 of Woodland Estates, which is known for the wooded character of all its properties, the property was on a deadend street that runs along a forested ridge. This house sat on a square lot 175 feet by 147 feet, with an extended corner in the woods of another 77 feet. Over 50% of the lot was forested and the house ass surrounded by shrubs and flower gardens, including over 50 mature hybrid daylillies.
