And there is so very very much potential for lots more “gardens” and special places so important to B&B’s!

Structural Description: This house was built before 1880! We have the square nails to prove it! It was originally built as an elegant farmhouse complete with a parlor and closets and fancy woodwork! Because it was built long before air conditioning was even thought about there are the most beautiful breezes blowing through from every direction! Nature’s air conditioning is all that is really necessary! New roof 4 years ago & repainted 2 years ago, electrical and plumbing up to code. Restored hard-floors upstairs/downstairs! Lots of lace curtains! Wallpapered Walls! Ah yes! Facing south, there’s a beautiful bay window and sunroof that keeps you warm and cozy on the coldest of sunny wintry days. This home is a refreshing revitalizing retreat for body, mind, soul!…and, of course, there is a huge pantry perfect for all the stores needed for a B&B! The Green Suite! The Blue Room! Potentially, the Rose Suite (needs at least a half bath)!

Offering: This is a real opportunity for anyone wanting to own a B&B! Perfect house! Perfect grounds with lots of potential for expansion! Nice private space with full kitchen, full bath, office area, and a wall bed if all suites are occupied. Yea! Large dining room. Living room. Sun room. There are several dining venues depending on season and number of guests and ambience desired by guests. This is a beautiful old restored house with every room being completely re-modeled with the exception of the innkeeper’s/apartment. There are 2 complete kitchens including washers & dryers. The one on the B&B side has been completely re-modeled and is beautiful.

$232,000. Just a thought…if one chose to actually live off-property renting the private apartment long-term could cover the mortgage.
