Roof, siding, flooring, most windows, septic, plumbing, electric, and more have all been done. Walking into the kitchen from the door on the north side of the home you can hang up your coat and sit on the custom bench to take off your boots. The completely remodeled kitchen is begging for you to make your favorite home cooked comfort food with tons of space on the stone countertops and SS appliances. The restored original wood trim frames each room and preserves the classic feel of the farmhouse and accentuates the modern upgrades. You can separate the dining room from the kitchen with the beautiful original pocket doors but the space has a very natural and open flow from the kitchen into the dining room and large living room when open. This space is perfect for comfortable everyday living or hosting a special event. The stone masonry wood-burning fireplace in the living room provides heat and ambiance for a cold winter evening or a winter holiday gathering. Follow the staircase up to the bedrooms and you are greeted by the gorgeous restored original burled maple floor. A large modern full bath serves the second floor and a large walk-in closet with natural light has been added to the master bedroom. Outside is an insulated 3 car garage and the original milk-house that acts as a garden shed now. The large rural lot provides ample room for a garden or any of the numerous activities that are permitted by Boone County residential AG zoning. This home is set in an idyllic country location on a quiet road and is really a must see. This is the farmhouse you have been waiting for, schedule a showing today so you can come fall in love with it. You will be enjoying breathtaking sunsets on the porch of your new country home before you know it.
