AUGUSTA – Ideal for a young family, for an equestrian, for a contractor who needs a fine workshop/garage, here is a sparkling, 2012-new, single-level home offered at the very friendly asking price of $179,900. And, the home sits on an 8.5-acre lot.

The three-stall horse barn, which has water, electricity and walkup storage above and could readily be converted to other uses, is actually just a year old. So is the large deck on the home’s sunny south side, and in fact, the home throughout feels every bit as new.

Thanks to primarily open-concept design, the house also feels and “lives” significantly larger than its 1,344 square feet. The south side is devoted to a front-to-back family room that has a pellet stove on a tile hearth and floor-to-ceiling surround. The family rooms flows into a stainless-applianced kitchen so large that it doubles as a dining room, with a large table fitting perfectly along the inner wall.

Off the kitchen, a very cool custom door of barn wood opens to a large, daylight laundry, with a pantry. Another custom barn board touch – a built-in head board – is seen in the second bedroom, which like the master bedroom is at the front of the house, while the third bedroom is tucked at the back. A well-appointed full bath serves all.

In addition to lots of storage, the full, partially daylight, walkout basement has good finishing potential, including the addition of a bath.

The barn also has a run-in at the back, and a side overhang for a vehicle or trailer. The lot includes woods with trails, and a couple of streams running through. With some clearing, horse-lovers could create a wonderful pasture and paddock.

The home at 376 Church Hill Road, Augusta, is listed by Earle Kenney of Sprague & Curtis Real Estate. For more information or to arrange a viewing, please contact Earle at 623-1123, 242-7636 or at [email protected].
