Unique Opportunity! INVESTORS, DEVELOPERS AND CONTRACTORS take note! Built in 1915, this charming homestead was the original Nelson Farm, which in its prime days of operation raised and distributed 2500 chickens each month.The original farm spanned approximately 600 acres. What remains today is the original homestead, barn, an additional garage area and one of the chicken barns positioned on a partially wooded, open field, 3.3 acre corner lot. The home retains much of its aesthetic character and charm including beautiful wide pine floors, exposed beams, a large stone fireplace, stained glass windows and inviting porch. Two of the bathrooms have been updated with granite and stone countertops, new fixtures and tile. Envision yourself on a bucolic farmstead? This property could be completely restored to its original grandeur and utilized for livestock, agriculture or equestrian facility. Alternatively, the lot can be subdivided and developed into individual home sites.
