Wow! A dream, a promise and vision transformed a deteriorating circa 1860 house into a spacious and comfortable home and horse farm. A promise was made to the man whose family lived there for generations. Foundation, stone exterior walls and part of the original section of the house would be kept. The house was designed around them & photo album is available. Almost everything is brand new ~ infrastructure, plumbing, electric, windows, flooring, walls! Old and new seamlessly blend together to create an exceptional, unique home with exterior stone walls now part of interior hallways. Walk-in stone fireplace, impressive and restored, is the focal point of the original living room w/deep sill windows, wiring for sound, new cherry flooring and a former exterior window now inside. First floor addition includes French doors leading into dining room w/Brazilian cherry floor & brass chandelier. Eat-in kitchen has custom maple cabinets, granite counters, gas cooktop, double wall ovens and two deep sill windows. Across rear of the house an enormous family room was built. Filled with natural light from windows and Atrium triple glass door, it has a bathtub w/handheld shower for dog washing and another door to outside kennel. Tiled entry area has full bathroom, double closets and a mud room with side door. Upstairs has gleaming cherry wood floors in stone wall hallway and two distinctive sides. On the right is the old house with two bedrooms, deep sill windows, lower ceilings and lighted closets. There is a back staircase to the living room, 2 more closets and a door to a large floored attic that could be finished for more living space. New second floor section has a full bathroom, laundry room, and stunning master bedroom suite with an unbelievable size walk-in closet plus two other closets. Vaulted ceiling, 4 windows, Atrium door with half circle window above leads to your own covered balcony. What a serene place to sip coffee and enjoy the views. Bathroom has whirlpool tub, Quartz top vanity and separate room w/toilet and large tile shower. Twelve acres are completely fenced, the sand mound septic was installed in 2005 for a 4-bedroom house and was purposefully located at the furthest corner of the property so it doesn't interfere with the horse farm. Stucco over stone on the house was redone in late 2018. There is an Amish built pole barn used as a garage, 26x22 w/high ceiling, that accommodates more than 2 vehicles. Main barn is Amish built 60x60 pole barn w/16 center features 10 12x12 stalls, wash stall and two heated rooms, one with sink and toilet, currently used for tack and feed. Upstairs is a 16x60 hayloft. Added to the barn is a workshop w/shelving and covered area for equipment storage. There are also 3 additional outbuildings set up as: 5-stall with 2 dry lots, 3-stall with dry lot and 2-stall with overhang. A 60x150 riding ring with lights, round pen and multiple fenced pastures complete the equestrian amenities. Owners raised dogs and kennels have indoor and outdoor runs that could be used for small animals. Front of the property has stone ruins of a bank barn & could become a special sitting area. It is part of the ambiance of this exceptional property that offers character of a bygone age and all the modern conveniences you could want. Country setting and exceptional home for a horse or farm animals~ enthusiast. Welcome home!
