There is an approximate 80’X50’ main garden, three 10x20 plots, a 15x25 plot, a mature asparagus bed, a young orchard (plum, 3 pears, 3 apples, cherry, concord grape). A berry patch contains raspberries, blueberries and thornless blackberry. All these gardens and the orchard are fenced and are pesticide free. Lovely perennial flowers surround the house. There are also two beds of culinary and medicinal herbs. The property is private, the neighborhood quiet. The upper field could easily support one or two cows. The 2 car detached garage has electric and an attached woodshed and workshop area. There is a small barn (also with power) and a chicken coop. All these outbuildings have metal roofs. There is also a carport at the end of the driveway. Septic was cleaned and serviced in 2018. Private well with delicious water. Exterior hydrant for watering the gardens.

The house is bright with natural light and the 2x6 walls are well insulated. The crawl space contains a new Rinnai on-demand water heater (2017) and fully serviced propane furnace (2018). We have used the crawl space as a root cellar for squash and root vegetables.
