Property Description

SOLD~This beautifully crafted single-story home has been lovingly cared for since built by the current owners, in 2005. Natural light pours into the back porch, which serves as the primary entrance. The large eat-in kitchen has hickory cabinets and island, as well as Duraceramic floors, and comes with stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher (all new since 2018). Laundry closet is conveniently located, just off of the dining room. Oak trim, throughout, and hickory hardwood floors in two of the three main-level bedrooms. A custom built sliding barn door adorns the bedroom which opens to the living room. Master bedroom with walk-in closet, is directly opposite of a spacious main level bath, with glass shower, and a secondary vanity ‘make-up’ area. In addition to the 1,510 sqft on the main level, there is ~800 sqft finished in the basement, with a second living room, large bath with whirlpool tub, and a bonus room that makes a nice office, or could become a fourth (non-conforming) bedroom. A secondary washer and dryer is located in the mechanical/storage room, and is included in the sale. High efficiency furnace (LP) and Central Air keep this home comfortable in all seasons.
Just out the backdoor, is a patio area and a detached garage (with semi-finished loft space) that has been converted into a “she-shed” or “man cave”. This space is insulated and heated, and could be made into an apartment, or used as office or retail space for your home business. A reclaimed barn wood wall, epoxied concrete floors, and another custom made barn door give this space loads of character and charm.
A pole building is half finished with insulation, concrete and in-floor heat, and is currently set up as a wood working shop. The north end is perfect for vehicle parking, or storing equipment, tools and lumber. It could also be converted to be used for livestock, as the level to gently rolling land behind would make excellent pasture for horses, cattle, sheep, goats or alpacas. A cute garden shed and fenced dog run are also included. Make this your home in the country, and enjoy the endless possibilities of owning over 6 acres of land (fully surveyed). This property sits on a well maintained blacktop road (“Fair Grounds Road”), 2.75 miles south from Highway 17 at the west side of Aledo, IL. Mercer County School District.
