Being agriculturally zoned, this property has no restrictions on its use.

A lovely wood-burning fireplace complete with a mantle and a beautiful brick hearth creates the center of this home.

An additional room with endless possible uses (library, office, den, etc.) sits off the kitchen through French doors. This room has many windows to let in natural light, opens to the driveway and is accessible from the outdoors. On the opposite side of the living room you will find three spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Towards the back of the home, off the patio, you enter an area of the home that is separate but connected to the main house. It has two separate entrances and is the room that truly sets this home apart from all the rest. Many windows and doors allow the true beauty of this property to enter this bedroom. With a suspended bathtub to accommodate a Hoyer lift, and a roll-under sink, this room creates an independent, peaceful place for your special-needs or elderly family members. If buyers desire, seller is happy to remove the special-needs accommodations (tub and sink), so that this large space may function in one of many additional ways depending on the needs of your family, including a home office or additional master bedroom. The home has carpet in three bedrooms and brand new, gorgeous, textured ceramic tile (wood grain in appearance) throughout the rest of the home. Although the home sits in flood zone X, French drains were added to the lawn to ensure adequate drainage.
