Country Living: Be sure to check other pages for properties that are somewhat larger or smaller than this as you may find something just right there. And don't forget to look under "Farms" as well. Some of the "Acreage" properties have barns, so if you don't need a home, that is another spot to search.

NEW LISTING - SOLD #1126 - Central Montgomery County Here’s a great spot if you want to live in the country and have some fun with land. There are up to 19.4 acres here, about 1/2 in flat fields used by a neighbor farmer. The remainder is wooded and it varies from flat to steep, as the land falls off down to a large creek. There are a number of apple trees and the home is surrounded by tall spruces and cedars. There is an amazing amount of road frontage here, 2046’. The home sits 125’ off a dead end road. Though not at the very end, it is the only home on the road. Yet with a 5 minutes’s drive you are in town. It enjoys pleasant area views.
The Victorian home is in good condition, meaning it is quite livable, but there may be updates you might wish to do at some time in the future. There is a good drilled well. It features 3 bay windows, lots of light. High ceilings, plank floor, a full walk-up attic, a Thermopride hot air furnace in good condition, a new water pump and new electric entrance. Built in 1885, it has 2637’ of living space.
Downstairs, one comes into a very large mud room which in turn leads into the kitchen. Off that hall are 2 baths - one is handicapped accessible and features a walk-in shower, nothing to step over. The kitchen is an eat-in country kitchen, bright and colorful. The main living room is off this and has a bay window, pellet stove and double French doors leading to the second living room, which has its own bay window. In another direction off the living room is a sunroom, featuring beautiful heavy curved support beams and a slate floor. There is water there so it can be used as a greenhouse if wished. Sliding glass doors lead to a deck which is handicapped accessible. Also on the first floor is a room which can be used as a bedroom or an office.
The second floor has 5 bedrooms. One must be accessed through another, so someone might want to turn that into a third bath and a short hall. the bedroom which enjoys the third bay window was planned to be a home clothing shop. It has floor to ceiling shelving on most walls, which could be used for crafts or a dedicated library.
Outside , a 20x28’ hip roof building can serve as a garage, shop, or even a second home with some work. It has enough windows and a finished floor upstairs. And it is heated and has electric. There are some small, older buildings located on the edge of the green space or just within the woods, but they add little value to the total.
