Contemplate the advantages of owning two houses on 3.45± acres of hamlet land with potential for additional buildings! The main house is move-in ready and has had improvements and upgrades in the past 10 years. The cottage is situated at the opposite end of the property and is currently occupied by a month to month tenant. Behind the houses and uphill is a plateau which has the potential to be a stunning building site. Add the attractions of being just a little outside of the village of Keene with easy access to the post office, the medical center, several eateries and attractive shops and consider this home a must see!
The main house is two stories with a full basement and a two-car garage. It is in excellent condition having been re-roofed in 2016. Built in 1925, it was recently re-painted both inside and out. There are three bedrooms and two baths upstairs with a living room, dining room, kitchen and half bath downstairs. The living room has a brick fireplace. The baths have all been renovated with new fixtures including lovely pedestal sinks installed. The floors are hardwood throughout, except in the kitchen. Cast iron baseboard delivers heat. Water comes from the town and the septic system has an input pipe which can be used by a motor home. The heating, plumbing and electrical systems were updated in 2007 and there are contemporary electric refrigerator, stove and dishwasher in the kitchen. A full basement has cement floors and very high ceilings. It houses the clothes washer and dryer, an extra refrigerator, two sturdy workbenches, the oil fired hot water heating system and the hot water tank. One very appealing amenity of this home is the sheltered walkway leading the short distance from the kitchen to the garage.
The cottage has living room, dining room and kitchen with a bedroom and a bath. It has its own water and septic systems, power and driveway.
You’ll see from the photos that there is a very large lawn between the main house and cottage. Uphill from there, the plateau, part of this ownership, has potential for good views with some selective cutting.
