It needs lots of work. Most of the buildings need roof repairs as does the house. The house is small and dated. Nothing special at all really. It seems to be quite solid though. No creaky or wavy floors. Windows are shot. It needs all new flooring and paint. In this case, however, it's not really the house I'm after. The land is beautiful! Rolling pastures, large maples, nice wooded areas, it really has everything that I want. We need to do some research about the farm, land values, and find out about the electrical, wells, etc. It's 21.5 acres.
I think this property is as close as I will ever get to what I want in this county. I love it! We can make it our own. Andrew isn't impressed with the house at all but I'm trying to make him see its potential. I'm the rose glasses wearing optimist. He is the realistic pessimist. I suppose that is good. If it were my choice, we would have bought and moved into an old farm that had no modern amenities a long time ago (giggle, giggle). I can picture it years down the road, much larger with big windows and a grand porch. Sigh.
An old hay rake?
