House surrounded by trees

Your Perfect Mountain Hide-Away in Mt. Washington

Mt. Washington Nature Compound

I grew up surrounded by trees. My mom was super smart and purchased a plot of land in the middle of a forest preserve to build a house and raise her family.

Waking up to birds chirping at my window and deer prancing through our yard is how I remember my childhood. Squirrels, raccoons and geese flying in pairs will always remind me of home. That is probably why I fell head over heels in love with your perfect mountain hide-away in Mt. Washington.

House among trees

It really is completely surrounded by trees. There is so much opportunity to make this piece of land so spectacular. But first, the house…
