This one of a kind, 2,368 SQFT, rambling ranch home, is situated on 2.33 acres. It provides a private country feel, even though it is located within the town of Houston. It has approximately 240 feet of frontage on School Street and the home is set back approximately 150 feet from the road. The back and side yards are quite spacious as well. The setbacks to the right, and left are approximately 60 feet and 90 feet, respectfully. The rear setback is approximately 200, feet that includes a 60 foot deep wooded area on the rear boundary. These features all contribute to the country feel. The home has several distinct and separate living areas, which together, offer a significant opportunity for privacy both within and outside the home, should you prefer to capitalize on this feature. For example, when you enter the home you pass irrigated flower gardens in the front and step up to a cozy white front porch, with white vinyl columns and railings. In the home you are greeted by a spacious open dining room/kitchen area. To the right, off the dining room, is a large living room, which includes a cozy wood stove. The bedrooms, office and laundry rooms are on the left wing of the house. And the three season porch is located off the Living Room. The door at the rear of the kitchen offers outside access to a 24x14 wooden deck, complete with a Pergola. From there you access the hot tub area, which is enclosed by a privacy fence, or the back yard. Like the entire property, the back yard is spacious. It sports a fire-pit and several varieties of trees and bushes, including fruit trees, which occasionally attract wildlife including white-tailed deer. Back inside, the living room includes hardwood floors, a wood-stove, a pass through window from the kitchen, and ceiling fan. The living area to the left, down the hall, includes 5 bedrooms, including the master bedroom and two other primary bedrooms. The two remaining bedrooms have been converted to a large laundry room and an office, respectfully. Entry to the partial basement is at the end of the hall. The basement includes a sump pump, wood stove and outside access. At the end of the paved driveway is a detached 26x24 oversized two-car garage. Behind the garage is a 12 x 15 shed and an 8 x 19 storage container. The roof is only 10 years old. The gravity fed septic system will be pumped and inspected prior to settlement. The air conditioning system is only 1 year old. This is a must see!
