Property Description

Amazing 33.68 acre(mol) property with pond, timber, deer, and turkeys--a hunter's dream! Add to this a stunning 4 BR, 2.5 Bath 3034 sq.ft. home built in 2001 with beautiful views out every window. Open up the windows in the spring and fall and a whole house fan will pull in the fresh cool country air. You can relax on the front porch looking out over the pond or go fishing in the stocked pond for bass or panfish. Plus, deer and turkeys abound on the 33+ acres. There's even a chicken coop for raising chickens and a pair of resident peacocks who have made this area their home. This elegant home has crown molding and French doors with beautiful cut glass knobs creating a grand entrance into the living room. Anderson windows were used throughout the home and new hardwood flooring was installed on the first level in 2019. A first floor master bedroom suite has a huge master bath with whirlpool tub, separate shower and a large walk-in closet. The home is set up with a WINK Smart Home system for controlling lights, etc. from your phone and it also has a whole-home stereo sound system throughout most rooms. A four-season sun room for year around enjoyment completes the first floor. Upstairs, are 3 more large bedrooms and full bath. One 14'x20' bedroom has 12' vaulted ceilings and four skylights. There's also lots of extra storage space on this floor under the roof line. The basement has been professionally waterproofed with a tiling system around the entire perimeter keeping the basement dry. A 22' long concrete storm shelter in the basement gives you peace of mind during bad weather. Home has hot water boiler heat plus an outdoor furnace if owner desires to use it to lower winter heating bills. There's also a tankless hot water heater for on-demand hot water. Home has an anaerobic septic system and the well is set up with a Grundfos Water System with a special pump and controls. Outside there's an above-ground pool along with mature trees--walnut, cherry, & oak. Great location just off Rt.26 and only a few minutes from I-180. Put all this together and you have the perfect property--a very rare find!!
