Property of the Week

This week's featured property is a farmette just outside of Monroe.

If you enjoy older homes and are looking for space in the country, look no further! This 8.49 acre farmette is waiting for a hobby farmer or family who wants to spread out. The classic square brick home has four bedrooms, a large farmhouse kitchen, formal dining room and living room as well as a family room/den. The current owners have lovingly cared for and restored this home, refinishing the wood trim to its glory. Hardwood floors gleam throughout the home, and two sets of pocket doors add to the period charm. There is a full walk-up attic and a full basement, giving you storage options galore.

Outside, a paradise awaits. Towering oaks and elms dot the lawn, and a double row of trees provide a barrier between the home and the road. The land has been turned into a homestead with everything you could ask for. 21 varieties of fruiting trees are growing in the orchard and 5 varieties of grapes are in the vineyard, plus there are strawberries, red and black raspberries, rhubarb and perennial herbs. A large open field awaits your horses or livestock. The sturdy traditional red barn has been immaculately cleaned and is waiting a new life. There are also two other sheds, a chicken house and a silo, each in good condition.

This property is a slice of country living in an unbeatable location. Located just three minutes from Monroe on Highway 11/81, you will never have to worry about being snowed in after a winter storm or wasting too much time ferrying the children to and from events. The motivated sellers are asking only $265,000 for this idyllic country estate.
