Farmhouse • 3 Bed. • 2 Bath. • 224.45 m² • Ground floor • Ref: 11103789

In the midst of the Amish community and a short distance to the Produce Auction is a 132 acre farm with up to 105 tillable. Decent soils too, black silt loams. The land has not been used in a number of years, a shame - but the bright side is that it qualifies for organic. The remainder is abandoned pasture. Although there are trees, nothing is really wooded. There are 2 dug wells across the road, lots of good water here.There is a stream in the back, a large creek in the front, and there are 1800' of road frontage. The home is an 1860 classic Brick Italianate of 2412 sq. ft and although used part-time by a single man, it is in good or better condition with a nice view across the creek valley. It is serviced by an updated 4 zone oil furnace and has a (non-active) security system and its own dug well. Inside, the kitchen has new cabinets and appliances. Floors are refinished wide planks (some need another treatment). Lots of new sheetrock, nice choice of colors in the paint, too. There are a number of odd and end type of minor improvements the owner intends to make as we progress toward a closing.There are 8 rooms total, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Stove, refrigerator and dishwasher are included; all else will be removed. The basement is high-ceilinged, dry, with an epoxy-painted floor and can easily be converted to useable space if one wished. The third floor is a walk-up attic and could be refinished for substantial additional living space if you didn't mind abbreviated head room along the outside walls. The view from there is even better - in all directions. The barn is in nice shape with a block foundation and a Gothic arched roof. It is 36x96' and has 2 large pens in it now. It can be easily converted to horse, cattle or small animal stalls. The gutters are there but were filled in with gravel. There is also a fairly new 24x36' garage. It has 3 doors with openers, and a concrete floor. $525000. It is only 1 mile to town, less to school. Taxes estimated at $10300 (no exemptions taken - you could finagle it far lower). The owners told us to say they 'are motivated'. They also told us to not even submit offers that were decidedly lowball. Make it reasonable and we'll submit it.
