Heisser’s home is 1,714 square feet, and the den features a soaring ceiling and sliding French doors that lead to the deck and in-ground pool. Heisser shares:

“The backyard is really the centerpiece. I jokingly say that it’s a mini national park. I have 26 hemlock trees that line the fence line and the back side of the pool. The pool is oval and 19 by 39 feet. The wood deck is 650 square feet and runs almost the length of the house. It’s an entertainer’s paradise.

"The highlight of the interior is the vaulted ceilings and the brick wood-burning fireplace in the den, which is open to the kitchen. The den has two large skylights. The kitchen appliances are new as well as the washer and dryer in the mud room.

"The large master bedroom has a half-bath. The front siding and rear windows are all new. The neighborhood is wonderful. It’s an isolated area in a cul-de-sac. There are about 60 homes on the street and only one entrance, and it’s a commuter’s dream because it’s less than 30 seconds from the expressway.”
