For many months of the year, Sallie doesn't even bother turning on the air-conditioner. Why would you when you have the cool breezes coming down the bluff to circulate inside? Screened windows and doors are essential. Just off the dining room stands a comfortable screened porch that is sparsely decorated except for the surrounding woods, perfect for enjoying the weather and nature.
The incredible views make the front deck a popular spot. French doors open from the living room onto the deck, which is furnished with plenty of seating and a small dining table for casual nights spent with family and friends.
