The bottom floor of the home is a very nice partially finished basement. On this level, you will find a dining room, living room, school room and bedroom. It also has an unfinished kitchen area with walls and flooring in, but lacking all of the cabinets. The majority of the floors in the basement are hardwood with just the school room and bedroom being shag carpet. What makes the basement special is that the walls were poured (not block like most) by a company who builds bridges so they are built really well and don’t leak so the basement can be used as living space without the fear of leaking. The basement walls were poured to a thickness of 12″, were reinforced with rebar and sealed and waterproofed in order to insure there is no leakage. In the basement is also a safe room in the back corner with the same specifications as the walls. It measures at 8′x8′.
The basement does contain an unfinished space, approximately a 40′x14′ area. This is the area in which the safe room is located.
Outside of the basement, you will find a poured porch the length of the house.
Moving to the top floor, we find two bedrooms, a sitting area and a full bath and also an unfinished room. This would make a lovely bedroom or a study.
All the flooring upstairs is hardwood.
The exterior construction of the of the home is built stronger than the usual home, as they construction consists of 2×6 rather than the usual 2×4. The floors are 2×12. There are two additional porches which run almost the length of the house and are 8′x69′.
Outside, there is a little building or shop that measures approximately 12×16 with an 8×16 porch. This building was hand constructed using wood from the property. It was made to look antiqued ,using the wood to make a board and batten rough cut siding on it.
