Just a stone’s throw away from city conveniences, yet perched high atop rural Jenne Road, this charming Pleasant Valley home will provide comfort, serenity, and the opportunity to utilize the full potential of its 2+ acres however its new owners may see fit!
Take in the surroundings from your choice of the many natural settings the property provides. Lounge on the wraparound deck and patios. Gaze at the midnight stars while soaking in your large outdoor spa. Walk up the stone steps and past the garden to your own private paradise dotted with Douglas fir and cedar, various orchard fruits, an open field, weathered sheds and fantastical forts. And this is just half of the flora-fauna equation! Perhaps you envision a true “homestead” inhabited by Llamas and Chickens and Goats (oh my)? The possibilities certainly appear to be boundless, not just for the urban farmer, but for anyone who may enjoy a little bit of extra space between themselves and the neighbors.
Lovingly maintained by the same family for over 40 years, the interior of the home offers up its own special charms as well. On the main level; an open kitchen adjoined by a great room for dining and family recreation is warmed by a modern wood stove. The generous sized living room anchored by a new fireplace. Separate study, mudroom, & pantry areas serve the various needs of all members of the family. As does a well appointed bathroom and dedicated laundry area. For the handyperson, an abundant workshop is attached to the rear of the home. And at the end of the long day, relax by retreating to your own private indoor sauna. A stay at the Edgefield Hotel has nothing on this place!
Upstairs you’ll find another bathroom and three unique bedrooms, with the master adorned by period correct wood paneling, a walk-in closet, and a tidy project table inside. And what better way to kickstart a night of pleasant dreams than by peering out into the night sky and the territorial views of your property from the garden window at the head of the bed.
Original structure built as a barn in 1953 and renovated into a unique house in the 1970’s, this special property has so much to offer. New Milgard windows in 2011. Leafguard gutters. Extensive landscaping. Automatic sprinkler system. Efficient supplemental electric heat. Detached two vehicle garage. Onsite sewage system recently serviced. Public city water in addition to a functioning well. Adjacent to an upscale housing development. Gated point of entry at the rear of the property leads to additional parking at the front. Recently paved driveway.
A rare find and unique opportunity to own so much for so little!
