WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: "There are several oak trees on the property," listing agent Patty Kampsen said. "We're building around the grandfather oaks. There's one that's 206 inches in diameter. We believe that the trees add to the overall ambiance of the property. When you think of Tuscany, you think of older natural environments."
