The House... Room to Spare
Description: Overview of House. Photos | Video Clips
The main level has a 12' x 23' eat-in kitchen with plenty of windows and counter space. It is sunny and cheerful. We enjoy watching the birds that come to the deck for seed all year round.
Open to the kitchen is the 14' x 24' great room with a cathedral ceiling, skylights, and walk-out to the 550 sq ft deck. The great room has an airtight insert stove with glass windows and an electric blower.
The master bedroom suite includes a walk-in closet, a large bathroom (with a skylight and a deep soaking tub), and a door to the deck. The master bedroom is 14' x 18' with a cathedral ceiling. It is a nice, peaceful retreat.
There are three bedrooms on the main level, each with a closet. The bedrooms are 12' x 13', 11' x 11', and 10' x 8'. There is also a spacious full bath.
There is a 9' x 6' foyer with a coat closet, and a 12' x 7' room off the kitchen used for laundry and storage.
The main level bonus room, located off the foyer, is an odd-shaped 67 sq ft. We have used this room as a schoolroom, office, bedroom, and library.
The garage is attached to the house and accessed through the laundry room. It has electric garage door and a window.
There is a full, walk-out, mainly unfinished basement with an airtight stove. The only finished area of the basement is an additional bedroom, which is very bright and comfortable. The basement door walk out is under the deck, nicely sheltered.
The house is well built (constructed in 1989), with maintenance-free brick exterior. We recently had major foundation work done to stabilize the foundation (the soil has high clay content which expands / contracts).
Heating and Cooling: High efficiency propane gas furnace and central a/c unit (electric). Own 1,000 gal. propane tank (with no contracts or commitments to buy propane). Propane hot water heater. Attic fan. House gets good shade from trees in the summer and good sun in the winter.
Hardy outdoor wood furnace: This is a great wood furnace to easily heat the entire house and the hot water. All stainless steel construction, thirty feet from house (no smoke, ashes or wood in the house), 12 hour burn, connected to central duct system. Plenty of wood on the property to supply needed wood to heat exclusively with outdoor wood furnace (logs typically don't need to be split and can be as long as 26-inches).
NOTE: These photos and description date back about four years (when we first rented this property).
