Beautiful rock garden blooms in the springtime

Beautiful rock garden blooms in the springtime

House is situated on a small county road with blacktop access. In front, facing the county road, is a beautiful rock garden made of creek rock, planted with hostas and many other lovely perennials and annuals.
Behind the farmhouse is the quaint herb garden, also made with creek rock, filled with tarragon, oregano, mint, lemon balm, echinachea, and many other perenniel herbs. This, together with the large garden area, is bound to be the gardener’s delight!

gardenThe large garden plot is to the side of the house, with a raised strawberry bed and a raised asparagus bed along side of it. Note: greenhouse pictured does not come with the house.
The raised strawberry bed yields an abundance of delicious berries in early spring.
Up on the hill at the back of the property, there are some thornless blackberry bushes (pictured), and several young apple trees, peach trees, and blueberry bushes.

House interior features a large open living and dining area, with new windows and wall paint throughout the entire house, and a new hardwood floor downstairs. A large bay window faces the front of the house, displaying a beautiful view of the rock garden.

The large open dining room has double pane windows facing the garden on the right.

The kitchen is also large and open, with ceramic tiled flooring, an island in the center, new countertops, a dishwasher, and new kitchen cabinets.

The downstairs bathroom contains a tiled shower, a sink, and a toilet.

The laundry room is large, with cabinets and shelving, along with space for a washer, dryer, and deep freezer. On the floor of the laundry room is a large trap door, opening to a 15′ x 17′ cellar.

There is one 15′ x 17′ bedroom downstairs with a large closet.

Upstairs there is a hallway that leads to four more bedrooms,  along with a bathroom and a linen closet.

Upstairs Bedroom #1 is a charming room with lovely faux painting, a small closet, and built-in book shelves.

Upstairs Bedroom #2 is another big bedroom. It is attractive and pretty, with a picket fence and flowershand-painted around the perimeter and a sky blue background.

Upstairs Bedroom #3 is a small, picturesque room, with the trim and shelves made out of old barnwood. It is also the only room in the house with the original finished hardwood pine flooring.
