Zerbe became both friend and photographer to movie stars and luminaries of the era, many of whom visited his beloved Windsong. In 1999 the current owners set about an extensive remodeling and renovation, adding a full second story and deep water dock, along with improvements to the 2200 sq.ft 2BR/1BA carriage house and heated pool. The impeccable grounds are bolstered and protected by a security system, irrigation system, generator and exterior lighting. Western facing views provide magical summer sunsets over the peaceful riverfront setting. Shown by appointment only. Please respect the owner's privacy, no drive-by's please.
