Enjoy life and nature in this updated ranch style home privately nested on 8 picturesque acres with a water view of the pond, lawn, gardens, and woods. This inviting retreat has been meticulously maintained, is move-in ready and features an open concept floor plan. The main living area features an updated kitchen with a custom island with seating and built-in cabinetry. New pendant lighting fixtures and LED recessed lighting add appealing appearance of the eat-in Kitchen. The kitchen appliances are 4 years old. The living/dining area looks out on the pond, lawn and woods and has hardwood flooring. A high-efficiency smaller style wood-stove easily provides heat throughout the main level. New electric baseboard heat is installed throughout the home.
Two bedrooms are found on the main living level of the home. Built-In units have been added within the closet space. A striking sliding barn door made of reclaimed wood from the barn on the property has been added to close off the master bedroom closet. The main bathroom has been completely redone from top to bottom. A staircase from the main level brings you to an expansion area that was planned to become two additional bedrooms with a second bathroom or a large master bedroom with a second bath and large walk-in closet. Two new Velux skylights were installed in this area of the attic space. Rough-in plumbing is ready.
The family room is located in the basement. The wood flooring is insulated. A built-in shelving unit on the southern wall along with the view of the property creates a beautiful focal point. In addition, there is a cozy reading area that was created under the staircase. The basement with a ground level exterior access has a new sump pump system and is fully insulated. The exterior door was made with an insulation of R-30 to retain the heat in the basement provided from new electric baseboard heat and solar gain from the larger windows to the backyard. There is a newer Hot Water tank as well as a Tankless high efficiency system ready to connect to supplement the hot water needs of the house. A new LG washer and dryer is in the laundry area. You’ll also find a workshop area available for your future projects.
The Septic system was done in 2012. The well pumps 10 gallons a minute (see attached documentation) and water quality was tested when homeowners purchased the property in 2013. The house is oriented to take advantage of solar options. The new raised seam metal roof was done specifically with solar in mind. Solar panels could be installed in the future utilizing the raised seam making a permanent roof penetration unnecessary.
The pond is visited by ducks and occasionally cranes. The baby ducks are a treat to watch in early summer. The pond was stocked with bass a few years ago. There are trails in the wooded portion of the property.
