361 College Grant Road, College Grant

$156,000. ~ Privacy, 1870s Home and Cottage
The first time I visited this property I was impressed by the wonderful level of privacy. The property includes 17.5 acres with blueberries, apple trees, gardens and mature trees. The house dates back to the 1870s and I'm told it was actually two homes joined together. It's very neat and quite original. Inside, you'll love the hand-hewn beamed ceilings, wide plank flooring and unique character. The ceilings are lower than 8 feet which adds to the charm but if you are over 6'2'', you may find them too low. Talk about charm, you enter into a huge room with lots of windows. It is currently used as an entry, but could be a family room, studio, home office or dining. Off this room is a back hallway and stairs to the second floor.

There's also a second ''cottage style'', 1.5 story building with an attached workshop. This building at one time was home to pottery making and the attached shop was used for the kiln. The main floor is open concept with a kitchen counter and sink and a small bath with shower and toilet. This cottage also has its own septic system. Upstairs is a loft bedroom. This cottage has not been used for several years, but could be an amazing studio, guest cottage or perhaps the start to your B & B business.
