Property Description

If you are looking for something with low maintenance and plenty of potential, look no further. We are selling a 'completely renovated' church that we have made into a 5000 sq ft home (excluding basement). Room Dimensions and more information on the property listed below this writeup,

Located in a country setting yet minutes from the city, it is zoned for residential (with option to change for community use). It has a two car attached garage and an amazing 24 by 42 ft deck which has both a gazebo and a small greenhouse. It is absolutely great if you love entertaining friends or doing a bit of gardening. This property is zoned as a one or two family home....but could easily be made into three (rezoning would be necessary with that option), or a part of it could be used as an Air-B and B. So many possibilites.
As you come in the driveway, you are coming into a huge fully paved area for parking. Great for storing travel trailers, or those extra vehicles you may have. The paved space alone will amaze you. This home, being in a country setting has its own well and septic. (Septic will be emptied upon the sale of house) The septic area is easily accessed for dumping your RV or for RV's of those who may come to visit....all for convenience. The front yard grass area is small and takes very little maintenance. Just move in and enjoy your space.

MAIN LIVING SPACE
This is an amazing space that offers a cathedral ceiling in the living room featuring a fan and two country style chandeliers on each side of the fan. The space is fully open to family living, entertaining and a huge kitchen with a full upright freezer and a full size fridge side by side. Fully equipped with a stove and over top microwave with fan, a dishwasher, and a farmer style stainless steel sink. All appliances are stainless steel. The lower cupboards have all been installed with pull-outs for convenience. All counters are beautiful butcher block with a large island topped with butcher block. This full view open space has "six" 4 by 8 foot windows with two of them looking out on to the 24 by 42 foot deck with gazebo and small green house. Lots of space and privacy for entertaining here, or to just relax and enjoy the space. If you prefer to hang out your clothes, you even have a hide away clothes line that can open at your convenience for those sunny wash days.
As you view the photos, you will see two gorgeous genuine red leather sofas with lazy boys on each end. a beautiful coffee table and long electric fireplace that can be used for ambiance or heat. The furniture in this room can be purchased to stay with the home or negotiated with the sale. All in excellent condition. I can't imagine anything more beautiful filling this space. A short hallway leads down to the electrical panel room. This is a great area for a little office space or reading nook. Use your imagination for many ideas.
There are two heat pumps in this space. One in the kitchen area and another in the family room area. This main area has two bathrooms which are wheelchair accessible. There is a small hall way with another fridge/freezer which leads to the entrance of the granny suite. This area has a broom closet and storage. From here you can also go through a door with a little porch area leading out into the double car garage, as well as a stairway leading up to what could be used as bedrooms or another living area. Let your mind run wild as to how you could use this fully finished space to your advantage. We will call this "imagination area".

In the main area still, there is a set of stairs going to the master bedroom which has a good size full en suite featuring a large sink area and a separate vanity with large mirror for the lady of the house. As you go up the stairs to the Master bedroom, at the top of the stairs is a storage closet. Washer and dryer have been placed in the Master bedroom for convenience. This area also features a good size walk-in closet with upper and lower rods for hanging clothes on each side. Above the rods are shelves for extra storage. To the back of the closet is a full length shelving unit for storage....sweaters/shoes, or whatever it's needed for. This is a very large bedroom with a king size bed which will also be for sale if the buyer should choose to purchase.

"IMAGINATION AREA"....
So there is a stair way leading to what can be used as extra bedrooms, or even another decent size apartment. This space has a small kitchenette with fridge and sink but no stove. My daughter used a little counter top oven. So much potential in this area. You have to see it to imagine it. It has a full 3 piece bathroom as well as a half bathroom with a washer and dryer just off the living room. The living room features an amazing large window letting in lots of light as well as a small chandelier on the ceiling with a fan. There are two areas that can be used as closets or for storage. This upstairs area also has two heat pumps. So on one side of the kitchenette you have the livingroom and on the opposite side is another huge room for bedrooms or whatever one choses to use it for.

GRANNY / IN-LAW SUITE
You enter the Granny Suite through a beautiful stained-glass door that has an extension on one side that opens up to aide in moving in your furniture. The first thing you see are the beautiful ceramic floors as your eye continues to glance over to the two stained-glass windows, one on each side of the room. This apartment has two heat pumps...one in the foyer and one in the living room. From the foyer you enter through a wooden double door to the large living room which features two large 5 by 8 foot windows (with custom blinds). In this part of the Granny Suite you have a beautiful cathedral ceiling with the original church lights, a ceiling fan, as well as a seating bar area looking through to the kitchen. This apartment is so open, you would never feel closed in. From the living room, which is fully opened to the kitchen and dining area, you will see another smaller window and garden doors which over look and lead out to the 24 by 42 foot deck. The dining area has plenty of room for your table and at the end also features a lower bar seating area across the back of the room.
To the side of the dining room you walk through to the good size kitchen with plenty of cupboards containing pullouts, and a good size pantry. Kitchen is equipped with a fridge, stove and dishwasher. Lots of counter space and a little nook for your microwave. As you walk through the kitchen you enter the 3 piece bathroom with a washer. Stairs from the kitchen lead up to a cozy loft/bedroom with a good size closet and a three piece en suite. This would be comfortable living for anyone.
