It has 15′ thula hedges across the front. The property is fully fenced with a sliding electric gate (not currently operating).
The 2nd Building (STUDIO).
A former city storage building of about 900 square feet, incredibly thick steel-girdered and galvanized sheet siding. It has clamshell front doors measuring 12′ x 20′ and open completely. As a working artist, it is the ultimate space for art/cars/projects. Lots of windows and plenty of power (not only in building 2, but throughout the property)
The 3rd Building (SHOP)
It is actual a fully functioning 8′ x 40′ container converted to a shop with doors, vents, lights, power and heat. I am currently storing a large car in there and it works great.
