The mountain home at 596 Crippled Oak Trail is situated on 1.5 acres, and has several decks, including two covered decks on the front. At the time of this post, the asking price is $289,900. Don’t let the driveway keep you from looking at this one. There is plenty of room to maneuver at the top.
A letter from the Bent Tree Board President, and another letter from the Bent Tree General Manager, were posted to the official Bent Tree website (under Communications Hub, property login required) yesterday, regarding the upcoming CC&R vote.
If reading the letters sends your blood pressure up, here’s a photo taken yesterday that should help bring your BP back down (click image to zoom).
