This is a unique property, about 20 minutes north of Winchester (Rt.522N)   This very nice home is situated on 9.5 acres, not in a subdivision, nor carrying any restrictions or covenants.  If your desire is to have a few cows or horses, or potentially other farm animals, along with a nice family style home, then don’t miss seeing this one.  The house is of Dutch Colonial style, with much brick and stucco finished board/batten surfacing exterior. This is a fairly large home with 3,000 sq.ft. finished above grade.  There is a partial basement with about 360 sq.ft. finished (billiard room) with a large, clean crawlspace that houses the furnace, hot water, pressure tank, and other utilities of the home. The heating/cooling system is by electric heat pump.   The home was built in the years of 1976 through 1978.  The perimeter foundation is poured concrete walls. There is a private well and septic system that services the home.  The main level of the home has entry into a center 2 story foyer.  To the left is a very spacious formal living room.  Featured here is a large brick fireplace (propane gas fired), with a vaulted ceiling and high grade laminated flooring  This room has large windows at each end with natural sunlight brightening this space.  Off the other end of the foyer is a step down into the kitchen.  The kitchen is a recent remodel with new Hickory cabinetry and hickory flooring.  New stainless steel appliances have been added as well as Corian countertop (sculptured edging and oversized sink.  The kitchen does offer space at the far end for a table and a view of the inground pool at that end of the house.  At the far end of the kitchen is access to a utility room with a pantry closet, then access to a mudroom with the laundry.  This mudroom also gives access to the side yard with the pool, to the 2 car oversized attached garage, and to a room that offers a 4th bedroom to the home. This room has a closet, ½ bath, and a glass sliding door that exits to the front driveway of the home. This room was used as a in-law bedroom.  These “back rooms” of the home all have recently installed laminated flooring.  The attached garage has workspace with cabinets, a closet and still offers enough space for 2 cars.  Back at the foyer, after stepping down, to the right is a home office, looking out to the front of the home with much natural light flowing in.  This was the dining room of the original house, but that is now located down a hallway in the opposite directions.  At the end of the hall is a full bath for this main level.  To the left is a door to a private side deck.  To the right is what is now an oversized formal dining room.  This room looks out to the side yard where the pool is, and with the supplemental heat of a free standing woodstove. Off this room is a huge sunroom.  This room has a wall of windows looking off to a great view of mountain ranges.  The hottub does work, and does convey. There is also a free standing gas heater.  This room offers two exits, one to the private rear deck (again, great mountain views) with the other exit to the swimming pool side of the house.  The stairs from the front foyer lead to the masterbedroom along with two additional, spacious bedrooms.  The ”hall bath” is at the top of the stairs has some recent updating. The masterbedroom has a full sized tile shower (recently redone) with additional upgrading.  The master has his and hers closets.  Flooring on this upper level is also upgraded and recently installed laminated flooring.  There are stairs from the lower hall that take you down to a finished room that now suffices as a billiard room.  There is closet/storage space here, along with dry access to the crawl space that houses much of the utilities of the home.  The property has a lot going on outside, for equipment and/or animals.  There is a 56 x 24 block building that had served as a dog kennel in the past.  One large room with an addition (additional storage space and an office).  Above this main level is a huge room used for storage (outside entrance).  To the side of the building is a “lean to” that offers shelter for equipment.  Another building on the property is 64 x 24 with a concrete floor and sliding doors.  One end of this building is open.  This is a great building for housing equipment (mowers, tractors) offering high door height.  There is also a large run-in shed on the property that could also house equipment or possibly a run-in animal shed.  The property has two large open fields that are fenced.  The lower field has a small pond.  The driveway leading up to the house is paved. An upper field before the house has some fruit trees and a grape arbor.  An above ground pool with a 6’ vinyl privacy fence is included with the home.
