From the Zillow listing:


A fixer-upper oozing with potential near the old trout farm. Perfect for investors looking to revive a piece of the past. Close to the Rural Retreat Lake recreation area and the lovely town of Rural Retreat. The area boasts some of the finest schools in the county. This property with some creative ingenuity and TLC will rise fast in value. This structure is a blank slate except for a few little gems like the stained glass window, cedar sided walls and built-ins. This cute little cottage could be restored to make someones home ownership dreams come true. There is a nice-sized workshop with a separate power meter for extra storage, wood working, or whatever tinkering one might require. Horses and livestock are welcome. An original chicken coop and other out buildings could be useful for garden tool storage. Come see if this project is for you!
