Home And Outbuildings For Sale On Small Acreage Near Mt. Vernon


This is a nice 3b, 2b, home located just East of Mt. Vernon. It has a large backyard with approximately three acres of timber affording the owners a lot of peace and quiet. This timber has a great spot for a pond also. The owner started the pond process and actually dug some of the area out for the pond but his work got very busy and he didn’t complete the project. The home has been completely remodeled with much of the flooring being brand new. One bathroom and the great room are in the process of getting new flooring. The house is nicely furnished and the furnishings can stay with the house with the right offer. The great room is very large with a wood burning stove, fireplace, and Jacuzzi. Everything is electric in the house with the exception of the stove. With the high-efficiency new heat pump and great insulation, the average electric bill is only $200, which is low for a 3300 sq. ft. home. With a new roof, new furnace, and new AC, this house is move-in ready. There is an additional 4.75 acre piece bordering the east side of the property that has a modular home, an additional living quarters, and a couple of storage sheds that is for sale with another real estate company that would make almost 9 acres if purchased with this property. If you are looking for a home that’s close enough to shopping, restaurants, etc. but yet far enough out for country living call me today for your private viewing.
