This house was originally built more than 100 years ago in its original location on the golf course by the stone wharf.  After being moved to its current location on South Road nearly 100 years ago, the shell of the house was completed, but left unfinished until the Oderdas purchased it in 1979.  The interior of the house was completed approximately 35 years ago, with updated plumbing and electrical systems.  Bathroom and kitchen appliances have been more recently updated. Features of the house include:

  • 3 Bedrooms
