Property Description

Sturdy from the ground - up. This owner/builder is looking to pass the torch of responsibility, and care to the next owner. Built on a solid foundation, attention to structural detail down to the insulation, few houses have been built this well. There's opportunity to update finishes to your liking and the price reflects it. Four acres, plenty of room for the horse(s), mature trees in the wooded area with a small stream, some flat open area for a pasture or garden. A 21x24 storage garage sits near the far end of the property with a separate driveway, behind it is another shed, about 8x12. The house has a wrap around porch that welcomes you to sit and be consoled under its covering of shelter as you watch the grass grow and flowers bloom. The living room offers the 'glad you're home' feel with random width hickory plank boards, fire place with a mantel, a propane heater and the beam opening that leads to the dining area. The large bay window draws you to look out over the back yard and the wildlife that wanders by or the train that passes with a whoosh. The reproduction cook stove is definitely an eye catcher in the country kitchen and the wooden island can stay. Be sure to notice the light fixtures in these rooms. The first floor has a generous size primary bedroom, with two entry points, and next is a full bath with jetted tub that also serves as the laundry. On the second floor, the large bedrooms, are full size, there are three skylights and one bedroom has a half bath. Some of the trim is waiting to be finished and prep work will be a breeze. The walk out lower level is currently being used as an in-law suite with kitchenette/dining, bedroom and full bath. A second propane heater, (the tanks are rented). The rest of the basement has two rooms, one with utilities and storage, one with the wood stove and the fire wood shoot can easily be reopened. The septic tanks have been upgraded and the drain field is oversized with 3 laterals. This homestead has plenty of wood as a heat source, open area for gardening, a tiny dog fence and a secure chicken hutch. Sustainable Living. Buyer should check with zoning for potential of sub-dividing.
