Overview:

Reminiscent of bygone days, this extensively renovated century home, set into a hill with a backdrop of mature trees, invites entry from the moment you set eyes on it. The back deck is a few steps from the ample kitchen with island and eat-in area. The dining room is next with full bath adjacent. The large living room looks out over Eastern Skye Glen with a view of valley and hills that is lovely. Raised vegetable garden beds surround the house and should continue to be useful for years as will the large apple tree on the edge of the paved, circular drive next to the house. The garage, like the home, has a wood stove, plus space for a work bench or storage. There is a nearby spring and a small brook bubbles out of the woods to add a pleasant sound. The distance to Whycocomagh is no more than ten minutes, Mabou about twice that. This is a very reasonably priced 4-bedroom house and five acres.

Comment:

The basement is partially developed and well designed. A large room with a wood stove at the bottom of the steps leads into a wood storage / utility area with a food pantry storage area in between. The outdoor entrance opens onto the driveway allowing easy fire wood delivery.
