What I love about the home
Just minutes from the conveniences of town living, this home sits on 5 acres of beautiful land. The pond is a fisherman’s dream and there is plenty of yard to tailor to your needs (We love the large vegetable and herb garden and space for chickens and children to run!). Mature apple and pear trees bear fruit every year, as well as the blackberry bushes that line the mowed walking paths throughout the property. Beautiful stonework surrounds the home, and the large front porch, back decks and patio allow for plenty of space to enjoy the fresh air. Inside the house, the large windows help to keep the rooms light and bright year round. Nearly every wall upstairs has been freshly painted and most windows have new, cordless window shades. This unique, move in ready home is just what you’ve been looking for!
