Home Features

Upper Level:  Five bedrooms, 2 full baths, a bonus room and a full walk up attic. 

Main Level:  The spacious eat-in-kitchen with back stairway is somewhat dated (retro look), however, just let your imagination run wild and you�ll see the many possibilities.  Off the kitchen is a newer addition that was once an office and workshop.  This room with vaulted ceiling could be used as a great room/family room or whatever you desire.  The living/dining room area is spacious enough for entertaining, family dinners or elegant dining by the cozy comfort of the fireplace.  There are two additional rooms with adjoining full bath that could be used as bedrooms or offices.

Lower Level:  Full, unfinished basement with washer/dryer hook-ups and outside access. 

Mill/Barn:  This large 3 level structure was a Grist Mill in its early life.  It is sound, has been rewired, and previously served Mr. Nina (a master craftsman) as his wood working/cabinet making shop.  There�s tons of room for equipment and other storage.  The favorable B-1 Neighborhood Business Zoning should allow you to operate your small business, shop, studio, or gallery.   However, check with the local governing authority.

There are hardwood and random width floors throughout the home, deep windows, screened and wrap around porches.  Original, forged iron fencing surrounds the front of the property.  Don�t forget to check out the Owls that adorn the two chimneys.  Also, take in the gated springhouse.  The home is in need of some TLC, however, it is in good all around condition, with all mechanicals in fine working order.  Owners have set a fair and reasonable undisclosed reserve on the property.  Therefore, we recommend that you conduct your own due diligence, so you can bid with confidence.

�Homes and possibilities like this don�t come around very often.  So don�t miss the opportunity to own this wonderful property for just one bid increment higher than someone else is willing to pay.�
