What I love about the home
You will love the country setting! Very comfortable home loaded with character and much potential. The dramatic cathedral ceiling in the kitchen adds light and makes an incredible space! Open concept kitchen, dining and living with a cozy room with woodstove for cold winter evenings. Spacious master/study/bath wing. A very nice blend of old and new. 6.5+/- acres to frolic on, camp out or hike down to the river.
