Located in the tiny hamlet of Garrettsville, southwest from Cooperstown, this home just completed a very complete restoration. All the expensive hidden stuff too, not just cosmetic, although that was certainly taken care of as well. Newly insulated, new furnace, well updating, new parking spaces, completely new wiring, much new sheetrock, completely new septic and leach field, all engineered and approved. The home has vinyl siding, a good shingle roof and features a great back yard, dominated by a massive spruce tree and leading to a bubbling creek in the back. There are also sugar maples and cedar trees. There is an older 1 car garage near the creek. The home, of 1580 ft2, was built in the late 1800s and was once the residence and office of the doctor who owned the first automobile in the area (a Buick). All the original woodwork has been retained, along with the windows and all doors. Yet it is perfectly modern in function, with everything freshly painted. There is a large mud room with storage cabinets across one end. The kitchen is off this and is quite large, with the high ceilings that are throughout the first floor. The original custom-made cabinets and pantry are freshly painted, using bright and cheerful colors, along with additional cabinetry that was recently added. There are ceramic countertops and backsplash and an interlocking and waterproof vinyl tile floor. A large refrigerator and stove are included. A living room and a dining room lead off the kitchen. These rooms are only partly separated and could be considered one large room. They have newly refinished oak flooring and a bow window covers the southern end, giving you some solar gain. Also off the kitchen is a new laundry (washer and drier included) and a half bath. Upstairs are 4 rooms and a full bath. The bath, hallway and master bedroom have new hardwood flooring. Two more bedrooms have the original wide planks; All bedrooms have large closets. The 4th room would make a good office or crafts room as it is off the master bedroom. There is a full walkout basement that could be remodeled for workshop space or an additional room, which would add another 280ft2 to the total size of the home.. The lot is just under 1/2 acre in size and taxes are only $2189.47 - with no deductions taken. Your taxes could of course be a lot lower. It is more than fairly priced: $169000 will buy it. You can walk to a country store and post office in a minute. Although close to the road, traffic is very slow, due to stop signs only a stone's throw away. Please note that additional land has been added to the original lot. This will not show up in county rewords for a while.
