FEATURE HOME:

9448 LYTLE FERRY ROAD, WAYNE TWP.

Reused, repurposed, rejuvenated, this mini farm has been remodeled to blend the historical charm of its 1890 construction with modern conveniences. Two outbuildings have finished flexible space, allowing this 1.19-acre property many possibilities.

Listed for $379,500 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the mini homestead at 9448 Lytle Ferry Road has about 1,350 square feet of living space within the story-and-a-half frame house.

The property includes a two-car, detached garage with a separate workshop attached and a 60-by-90-foot barn. The barn has an interior dirt floor and a floored upstairs loft. Attached to the barn is an apartment or office space complete with a combined sitting room and kitchenette with a cathedral ceiling, full bathroom with walk-in shower and bonus room. Both the barn and the garage have an updated tin roof.

A white picket fence surrounds the yard around the farm house and pasture next to the barn. A gravel driveway leads to the garage and allows for extra parking. A covered porch wraps around nearly three sides of the house and a composite deck with pergola. Outdoor furnishings and a gas grill are included.

Formal front entry opens into an open floor plan with original rough-cut wood beams across the ceiling. Repurposed barn siding accents walls and creates a storage nook with shelves and hooks. Refinished hardwood floors fill the entire main level. Vinyl windows allow for plenty of natural light and a semi-open staircase leads to the second-floor main bedroom suite.

The front living room transitions into a family room with a texture ceiling. A stone fireplace has a wood-burning insert, wood-beam mantel and stone hearth. Windows flank the fireplace and look out over the side porch and pasture.

The family room transitions into the kitchen, which is offset by a partial wall that has a repurposed window. A vaulted ceiling extends above the kitchen and reused barn siding accents the wall space above the white cabinetry. Refinished butcher-block wooden countertops are a rich walnut color that complements the white cabinets. A window is above the double sink, which has oil-stained brass faucets. Two pantry cabinets flank the refrigerator nook, and an island has breakfast bar seating for four as well has open shelf storage underneath. Appliances include a range, dishwasher and refrigerator.

Walls of windows surround the breakfast room as a wood beams and cross beams divide the breakfast room from the kitchen. Underneath the windows is a full wall bench seat. Shiplap boards accent the ceiling, and a glass door opens to the backyard deck. Lantern light fixtures and ceiling fans complete the updates to the main social areas.

A repurposed sliding barn door opens to an elevated mud room. Three steps up, the hallway provides access to a laundry nook, complete with updated washer and dryer, a second rear entrance that opens out to the deck, a storage closet and access to a full bathroom.

The bath features a wooden dresser that has been repurposed into a vanity with sink and faucets. Tucked back and hidden is a whirlpool tub with shower and ceramic-tile surround. The bathroom has vaulted ceiling, ceramic-tile floor and updated light fixtures.

Two bedrooms are off the living room. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and large storage closets or nooks. One bedroom has a wood-beam ceiling while the other bedroom has a shiplap board ceiling.

A third bedroom and a bathroom are upstairs. The staircase ends within a hallway that provides access to an updated full bathroom. The bath has mosaic-tile flooring, a walk-in shower, a small vanity with extended sink. Across the hallway is a divided space that could be a double walk-in closet or closet and sitting room.

At the end of the hallway is a bedroom with two single-door closets, a cathedral ceiling accented with knotty-pine shiplap and rough-cut beams. A single-door opens from the bedroom to a balcony deck that looks out over the tree-lined side and back yard.
