3 rooms upstairs could all be bedrooms
Sitting off the road, this two-story farm house is surrounded by 6.31 acres within Clay Twp. The property includes a barn with overhead garage doors.
Listed for $148,900 by D.J. Rose Realty and Associates, the frame home at 7638 Brookville-Phillipsburg Road has about 1,470 square feet of living space. The 25-by-35-foot barn offers two single-car overhead doors that open into a gravel area while the side door opens into a storage or workshop space with electric and concrete flooring. Most of the acreage is behind the barn and is tillable.
Formal entry opens off a front porch directly into the parlor of the formal living room. Refinished hardwood flooring fills the parlor and continues into the family room or dining room, depending on floor plan needs. Both rooms have large windows for plenty of natural light. A staircase with painted wood steps and railing leads from the parlor to the upstairs.
At the back of the house is the eat-in kitchen with vinyl flooring. Two walls have painted cabinetry with a double sink below a window. The cabinetry includes a lazy Susan, and the kitchen comes equipped with a range. There is a pantry closet under the stairwell, and a breezeway has storage shelves. The breezeway leads to a side entry and the basement staircase.
The cellar houses the mechanical systems, which have been updated. The furnace and water heater were installed in 2010, and the water softener was installed in 2009. The property has a private well system and septic system. Cooling is available with window units. Both the house and the barn have tin roofs.
Upstairs, there are three rooms and a full bathroom. The two bedrooms at the front of the house have parquet wood flooring and extra-deep step-in closets. The rear room has the entrance to the full bathroom, which would allow for a possible main bedroom setting or a sitting room area as there is a furniture nook and closet.
The bathroom has tile flooring, a tile-surround tub/shower, a single-sink vanity and a triple-mirror medicine cabinet.
A second full bathroom is part of the utility room off the kitchen. The laundry hook-ups, fiberglass shower, toilet and wash sink are all part of the closed porch, which also has a rear entrance door. There is a bonus room off the utility room, which could be used for storage or a hobby room.
