Additional Information


Vintage Charm Accompanies this 1895 Farm House and Barn which is set on 3.2 acres of sub-dividable land. This home offers 3 bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, and Potential for 1/2 bath on 1st floor. The Living Room, Dining Room, and Family Room on the 1st floor have old pine floors waiting to be restored. Pocket doors separate antique spaces. The original front door from 1895 still leads to the front porch overlooking a huge old oak tree and sprawling front yard. Probably the most interesting feature of this old homestead is the barn. Fully functioning with 2 floors of creative space. The age and charm resonate in this space, from the operational sliding doors to the Ringling Brothers Mural used at barn boards and insulation. The 2nd story of this barn has been converted into a craftsman space with ample natural light. This is a very special property looking for a creative new owner to restore it.
