This home in Watercolor
422 Pine needle Way, Watercolor
with an outdoor pool and kitchen is a great value! It’s nestled in oak trees and backs onto a nature preserve for extra privacy. The interior has all that is expected, including elevated ceilings, travertine, claw tub, stainless appliances, wine rack and custom lighted cabinets. Would work well as a vacation rental.
