PRICE REDUCED! Nice country homestead perfect for large family, horse or hobby farm or someone who just wants a lot of space to get away. Several visiting guests have suggested it might make a great Bed and Breakfast. This property features a huge six bedrooms three bath home with two car attached garage. If you’re a hobbyist, flea market flipper, collector or car buff, you love the newer 45’ X 64’ fully finished toy barn with a fully finished room with bathroom and ceramic tile shower. There is also a huge 54’ X 80’ equipment shed and a classic farm silo. To the back of the property, there are several acres of natural timber, brush and thick cover for deer and wildlife. Here you’ll find some space to hunt, shoot, ride horses or ATVs or just enjoy the land any way you choose. The home is a nice mix of modern comfort and convenience with classic country styling. Most of the main floor has been updated over the years to include a large family room with gas fireplace, huge master bedroom and bath, a home office, efficient kitchen with island, stainless steel appliances and a second in wall oven for big family parties or the baking enthusiast. There is an off-kitchen dining area, a large enclosed wrap around porch used as a game area and a separate laundry/mud room. A feature you may really appreciate is the handicapped accessible guest/related living quarters with a huge ceramic tile shower and bathroom. To add to the convenience of this space, there is a separate entrance to it from outside the house. In addition to the third main floor bedroom, there are three bedrooms upstairs. The walk up and those bedrooms are where the history of the farmhouse really shows with the original wood railings, woodwork and doors all finished in classic white paint. Upstairs is where some of the homes efficiency improvements can really be seen or more like “felt”. You’ll notice how comfortable these upstairs spaces are due to numerous home improvements. The newer replacement windows, upgrades to the homes insulation, roofing materials, heating, and cooling system, as well as a professionally conducted energy savings audit, are just a sample of what the long-time owners invested in improving the home. Couple this high-efficiency furnace, wrapped water heaters, newer well and well pump, a water softener, whole house water filter, electrical system upgrades, AND an automatic whole house generator, you have safety, comfort, efficiency and lower utility bills! As many features and amenities, the house offers you may want to take advantage of all the outdoor features as well. Sit on the large backyard deck accessed via sliding glass doors from the family room. Talk a walk around the house and barns and enjoy all the details in the natural plantings, flowers beds and vegetable gardens. Relax on the tree swing or picnic table under the several magnificent oaks and maples providing shade to the back of the house and yard. Touring the rest of the property, you’ll find more mature oak, maples, pines and firs in the front and back, providing shade and privacy from the road. Pick apples, blueberries, grapes or vegetables from some of the plants and trees right on the property. Out behind the buildings, you can hike, ride horses, ATVs or hunt if you a hunter or outdoors person. The current owners did not hunt themselves, but they did establish an outdoor shooting range complete with a dirt berm for safety. Come see why this property will give you the opportunity to have that country retreat, hobby farm, recreational or horse property you always dreamed of.
