Beginning in late 2005, high-quality and energy-efficient improvements have resulted in a lovely home with all the character & charm you expect in a vintage farmhouse, along with the modern conveniences that you desire. Craftsman quality and details have been preserved, like double-sided oak hutch, French doors to the living room, original built-ins for storage & beautiful oak floors throughout.

Other special features incl: refurbished heated/cooled sunroom; south-facing windows for panoramic views & plenty of light; smaller upstairs bonus room for office or crafts; full open, insulated walk-up attic; period hardware, accents & lighting throughout.

This mini-farm includes a flowing creek, 9+ acres for grazing & crops (incl 6A now in hay), & 10+ acres of cash-generating CRP. When this was a family farm operation, the homestead included another 1+ acres of fenced grazing areas, including a paddock area beside the barn. These areas are currently mowed to create a park-like setting.
Outbuildings offer plenty of space for a variety of hobbies and uses. Four buildings have been rebuilt, incl the 18X51 structure now repurposed into a garden shed & a workshop, with walls of windows & newly-installed elec & lighting. A 1943 barn (07 roof) with big lean-to has lots of possibilities, as do 3 pole barns (largest 40X60).
