Foxfire

One of the neatest things I ever stumbled across in Bent Tree was back in 2012. I was walking the Beaver Run Trail one dark morning and saw a weird yellow-green glowing in the distance. I kept heading towards the glow and came across a patch of bioluminescent fungi…foxfire.  The photos above and below show two of the glowing fungi, but the photos don’t come close to capturing how amazing it looked in person.  Click the photo below to zoom:

A “Highest & Best” Home Sale

Looking back at the 2019 Bent Tree home sales, one that caught my eye this summer was a cabin with unique custom touches.  The home hit the market on August 1st (with an asking price of $219,900) and the immediate serious interest led to a call for “highest & best” offers being due just four days later. By August 6th, the property was under contract; it sold above asking price in September.  Click here for more information.
