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 is a stream in the back, a 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 security system and a dug well. Inside, the kitchen has new cabinets and appliances. Floors are refinished wide planks. There are 8 rooms total, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Years ago, the home had a one BR apartment and that could be changed back if desired. 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.
The barn has a block foundation and a Gothic arched roof. In good condition, it is 36×96’ and has 2 large pens in it now. It can be easily converted to horse, cattle or small animal stalls. There is also a fairly new 24×36’ garage. It has 3 doors with openers, and a concrete floor.
$475000. It is only 1 mile to town, less to school.
