It is now being used as an office/storage room for used furniture. Many ideas for this room.. ...could be an in-law apartment with 1/2 bath, media room, family room or 6th bedroom for overnight guests or rooming house, which it has been in the past.Now, off the kitchen, you will find the dining room with a wall of new windows with full view of the lake and original pine plank floors.Next, let's go through the cozy warm den with French doors to a family size living room with fireplace/wood stove with NEW insert and cap....great for those cold winter nights.Next, you will find the favorite room in the house....yet, it is not in the house! It is a 10 x 26' sunroom with NEW windows that reach across the full front of the home. Here you can see a panoramic view of Chautauqua Lake all year round.There is also a storage room off the dining roomdon't miss it!Let's go to the 2nd floor. You will find a large landing, big enough for furniture of your choice.Here too, you will find 4 more bedrooms, one with an access to the attic, SKYLIGHT, an UPDATED FULL BATH, and a sewing/bonus room off the bath.Now let's go outside and enjoy the large side covered porch with, again, an awesome view of the lake.The red barn has been made new again with INSTALLED CUPOLA, WINDOWS, DOOR on Ramsey side, and ROOF (VERMONT GREEN SLATE). Also, total tear off of siding with NEW SIDING RESTORED.The garage was also a TEAR OFF OF SIDING and then resided. There is a NEW floor and NEW driveway.There is still more...the orchard, grapes, apples, pears, blueberries, raspberries, mulberries and an herb garden.Don't forget another place to relax is in the patio in the grove.
