Description

Bring your horse, showcased in the heart of Horse County in the highly acclaimed Owen J. Roberts School District. This charming stone farmhouse with 2 fireplaces and 2 woodstoves is nestled on a level 2.24-acre hilltop with wooded backdrop and adjoins equestrian estates. There is very little traffic at this end of Mount Pleasant Rd, primarily just the residents. The 23X18 stone barn has a tack room and a horse stall, plus a sizable walkup haymow with a high ceiling. A separate freestanding garage and the original outhouse are included. This home exudes the charm of a bygone era, with curved staircases and thick stone walls offering gorgeous deep curved window openings and deep windowsills, most windows have been replaced. The stunning fireplace is a natural focal point for the large 22x15 great room with wide plank random width flooring complimented by tall baseboard, and a coat closet has been added to define the dining and living areas and can be easily removed if the original open feel is desired. This stone home is flanked by two additions, the addition on the west side offers mobility-limited access to a large room with a wall of closets and an adjoining Jack & Jill full bathroom, this space served as a mobility-limited bedroom suite. This versatile main-level bedroom could be an in-law suite and is also a natural for a formal dining room or family room, or maybe you want to open the entire area within the addition to create a massive country kitchen, it would be spectacular. The other addition also offers outside access and is a natural for a mud room, the washer & dryer could be moved to this room if a main-level laundry is desired, the space would also be ideal for an office or fun gathering place with the existing bar sink, cozy Franklin Woodstove, and lots of shelving. The upper level is complete with two bedrooms and a bathroom, one with a fireplace, the owner envisioned adding an upper level to the west addition to create a luxurious 4th bedroom master suite. Stairs access the attic. The expansive level grounds meet the Township requirements for equestrian use (buyer due diligence required, please double verify your use with the Township), and the property line has been adjusted to allow for two lanes accessing the barn & garage, please see the attached subdivision plan, the color arial photos do not properly show the adjustment, a marker pin is provided onsite for clarify. This is an estate sale, and the estate does not have the ability to make repairs, so it is Sold AS-IS. The home has been well maintained and the big-ticket items are up to date. The furnace is newer, the home is updated with modern wiring with a 100 amp circuit breaker box and a water treatment system with a fresh ultraviolet filter bulb. The following big-ticket items have been replaced within the last 10-20 years: the roof with modern ridge vent & flashing; the stucco over the stone; exterior soffit & gable trim; most windows, but cosmetically it needs TLC, offering a great opportunity to get a property like this at this price and create instant equity with a little elbow grease while making it your own with your favorite paint colors and ideas. Location near Warwick County Park with quick access to major routes including Rt.23, Rt.100, Rt.422 Bypass, and PATP.
