House is 2 bedroom/1 bath (easily expandable,) with a huge raised deck, screened in porch under the main roof of the house. Ceiling fans throughout. 1,440 Sq. Ft. CBS house built with extra insulation and lots of extras (in 2003.) Observatory houses a 14.5" f4.13 Newtonian, ready for astrophotography. Property includes 24x26' equipment barn with concrete floor, 10x16 (new) utility shed, 40x30' organic veg. garden, 2 wells/pumps and LOTS MORE!
