There’s something about sitting outside day or night next to a running stream. Listening to nature’s sounds of summer — rippling water mixed with the serenade of a toad or an orchestra of cicadas. Sip your glass of wine and look up to the stars as you snuggle into the serenity of your beloved country home. 

Here are a few houses currently on the market with streams running through or alongside the property:
