Property of the Week

This week's featured property is a 3 bedroom home on 40 acres.

Not a drive-by! Designed by an award winning local architect, this artisan built home overlooking a private valley on 40 acres lies tucked behind 10 greenhouses.

The three bedroom, three bathroom home is filled with light, built-in storage, quality details, and natural woods. A two story atrium overlooks organically maintained valley - nature lover's paradise! Quality abounds in the details in this home from the variety of natural and rare woods used to the construction details like 12 gauge wire in the entire home or the solid red elm siding.

Paradise awaits outdoors. A hot tub sits within steps of the house and overlooks the entire valley. There is a cleverly created outdoor amphitheater that has is ideal for concerts or performance art. Host gatherings and spend time at the large fire pit. This is a perfect retreat, available fully furnished. With private entrances to the main house, two bedrooms and the lower level, this home would be ideal for a bed and breakfast or for housing a home business.

Ten greenhouses sit between the house and the road. These are part of the current owner's herb business. Take over this turnkey business and start your own work at home adventure. Combined with the natural land and over 180 berry plants to establish a CSA, small vineyard or market gardener. This property is ideal for any hobby horticulturist. Rare plants, over 350 species of herbs and established grapevines dot the landscapes.

A second building site with separate septic, electrical and driveway are also on the property. This is presently the site of a concrete pad with a mobile home. This is currently leased to a caretaker in exchange for property management and greenhouse assistance.

This is a rare opportunity to own a unique home and parcel of land within minutes of Monroe. Do not be fooled by driving by - this one is a true gem.
