This beautiful, well-built Ellijay home is just right as-is, or it can be easily adapted to a homesteading lifestyle. It's a special place...private and relaxing, but with so many value-added features. The ten-acre meadow can be used for gardening or fenced for livestock. The sturdy pole barn can be enclosed for a barn with access to the meadow just below. Pole barn has electricity, fresh water, and a wastewater septic connection. The home has cement-fiber siding for easy exterior maintenance. Beautiful meadow views from the living area and bedrooms. The home is spacious inside with primary ensuite on main level and one half-bath in the living area. The upper level has two large bedrooms, 2 full baths, and a huge, finished bonus room above the garage. The bonus room has a separate exterior entrance and, combined with the upper-level office area and one of the full bathrooms, this space could potentially be used as a rental. The basement is over 1,600 sf, has one finished full bath, and is stubbed for the addition of a kitchen and second bath to create another potential rental area, again with its own exterior entrance. Footings were designed to keep the foundation dry...no damp or musty basement here! Turn off the furnace and save money with a wood burning stove to heat the home interior, with a second wood burning stove to heat the basement. Two 50-gallon water heaters assure hot water for all. The garage has two bays large enough to park a dually truck, ample workshop space, and a half-bath. The home has a 24kW whole-house propane generator, so you're never without electricity. The large kitchen has plenty of counterspace, and the gas range with pot filler makes pressure-canning easy. Large pantry in the laundry room off the kitchen. Satellite TV and Internet help you stay connected, or turn it all off and enjoy soft breezes and a beautiful view from the wrap-around porches. There is also room on the property to subdivide and build a couple of other smaller homes to sell, or create a family estate.
