"Spring Hill"- Delightful, whimsical, and enchanting 1929 Arts & Crafts style English cottage situated privately on 4.8 bucolic acres with gated entry to adjoining 4 acres of Redding Land Trust meadows.
This storied home was built by celebrated artist Lizabeth Clifton Hunter (note her watercolor at the foot of the stairs).

The compound also offers a detached 3-car garage with potting shed and regal clock tower.
