Property Description

THIS 2 ACRE FARMETTE HAS IT ALL! Edge of Sterling location, barn for livestock, plenty of garden space, 42x30 garage with in-floor heat, and a GORGEOUS professionally remodeled 3 bedroom home all located just 2 miles north of Sterling on a hard surface road. You'll fall in love as you walk up the brick sidewalk to the open front porch, perfect for watching the sunsets. Step inside and be wowed with the spaciousness and beautiful Hickory floors. The living room boasts a stone fireplace and an incredible vaulted, open beamed ceiling. The custom kitchen leaves nothing to be desired with quartz countertops, center island, so many soft close cabinets, stainless appliances and tile backsplash. The roomy dining room allows for easily entertaining guests. The primary bedroom suite is highlighted by a coffered ceiling, offers plenty of room for large furniture, and has double walk in closets. The en suite bath is a dream with separate double sink vanities, custom tiled shower, and a luxurious soaking tub. Working from home is no problem with the private full office complete with built in desk and Star Link Internet available. A 1/2 bath off the back door and a handy laundry area complete the main floor. The roomy upper level bedrooms are so functional and include dormers with built-ins and beautifully refinished hardwood floors. Anderson Windows throughout. Most electric and all plumbing - 2019. Zoned LP gas furnace and central air - 2019. 2 water heaters. RO system and Culligan water softener (rented). Whole house generator. There's a 12'x20' deck for grilling and a fenced area to keep pets safe. The amazing garage with electric car charger is 4 1/2 cars wide and is plumbed for a sink. The in-floor heat has its own boiler and separate electrical system. With its Carriage House styling, the upper level could be finished into a separate living space with separate entrance and driveway if desired. Now to the barn...nothing to do here, its' been refurbished. Solar panels area already in place and the $90/month lease gives you reduced electric bills. With the Ag Zoning, just bring the chickens and pot belly pig. You're all set!
