In many ways there's a level of uniqueness in the sale of this property. Ossory Hill is a Western Cedar log home, with a design like no other, sitting on approximately 3 acres of an elevated site, with views that are amazing. Western Red Cedar homes are 20% more costly to build than the standard Irish build and are also 30% more fuel efficient to run. Longevity is not an issue with Western Red Cedar homes, with some properties hundreds of years old. The maintenance is similar to any home, but at a lower cost.
