  • Single-story, 1600 sq. ft. home with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, living, dining and family rooms, sun room/porch and 1200 sq. ft. basement. It has electric heat, central air, ceiling fans in every room, like-new Rheem 50-gal electric water heater, wood-burning fireplace in the family room and an all-door alarm system.

  • A 3-car 36' x 48' garage is connected to the house by a covered walk-way. This like-new building has 3 overhead garage doors with openers, a walk-through door and is all insulated. A wall separates a 24' x 36' shop with a small overhead door for mowers and ATVs and a walk-through door. It is insulated as well and has a LP gas furnace. This is a very nice building.

Both the house and garage have tan vinyl siding and green metal hip roofs.
