When the Terrills' moved here in 1967 there was no interstate to be seen out backyard, no 4-lane Ind 49, or a large church across the street, it was simply close to Dunes State Park. This 4-bedroom, 2-car garage home on large lot with Chesterton School system is For Sale, by direct private sale.

Thanks to the Fairhaven Baptist Church & Academy we have a very large gravel parking lot, that's on the north side of Oak Hill Rd. It adjoins this estate home - PARK in lot, plenty of parking. Don't park along road, it's simply dangerous.

Diana's trademark photo look, the 6" Benjamin Franklin paper bill, seen in some photos is for size comparison, it isn't the price.
