From the large wrap-around porch, you enter into a spacious entryway which is open to the living room. The living room has lots of windows, all with deep window sills and original wavy glass windows. A woodstove is conveniently located in the entryway. Older-style doors open to a hall closet. Located behind the living room is the kitchen and dining area. There is a wonderful, vintage built-in cabinet in the dining area. Also located just off the dining area is a nice-sized pantry with lots of shelves! Additionally on the first floor is a large bedroom, full bath and a smaller room which could be a 4th bedroom or office. The 1 car garage is conveniently accessed through a door in the kitchen making for an easy way to bring in groceries, etc.
After ascending a typical farmhouse set of stairs, you’ll be in a good-sized central hall. To the right is a large bedroom with painted wood floors, two windows and two closets. To the left is a larger bedroom with two windows, shelving and a closet.
Also located on the 10± acres is an older barn with a shed. Both structures will require some TLC! The house, barn and shed are all being sold in their “as is” condition. This property is priced to sell so don’t miss out on the opportunity to restore this farmhouse and own a piece of history.
