Nestled among mature trees on a quiet country lane, this quintessential 1912 farmhouse is a special blend of old-fashioned charm and modern amenities, creating a warm and welcoming home. From the moment you enter the front foyer the comfortable, timeless floor plan draws you into the heart of the home. The stately fireplace visually divides, yet anchors, the gathering room. Whether sharing everyday life, or celebrating holidays surrounded by family and friends, the living room and dining room has been the central gathering spot for over 100 years.
The spacious kitchen has plenty of room for the cook, the baker, and the lemonade maker with additional open space to add an island or a breakfast table. Handmade solid wood cabinets (by a past owner who worked at the local mill in the 1950’s) include a tall wall of pantry cabinets. Enjoy the soothing cross breezes, dappling natural light, and lovely views of the yard from the two garden windows and patio slider. Whether you wake up to the aroma of fresh brewed coffee wafting down the hall to the master bedroom, or come in from the outdoors to the sweet scent of fresh baked cookies, the kitchen is the life blood of the farmhouse.
With large corner windows and room for a king-sized bed, the main floor master bedroom is a pleasant surprise sure to please many buyers. Meander down the hall a few steps to enter the well-appointed, updated master bathroom and unique staircase nook that is used as a quaint office space. Head upstairs to the open landing that would be ideal as a homework space, play room, or den. The 2nd full bathroom with bonus linen storage is shared by 3 spacious bedrooms – all with impressively large and charming walk-in closets with ample room for bonus storage or play areas.
Wander outside and enjoy the quiet rural sounds and sunny open spaces including expansive gravel parking areas that will accommodate many guests and provide room to park campers and boats. Amuse yourself and your guests when entertaining on the tiered covered decks and play area, or envision the many possibilities offered by the multi-purpose outbuilding.
Bonus spaces - the full, unfinished basement offers abundant storage, hobby and shop space, easy access to all mechanicals, and an attractive exterior paver walkway entrance from the driveway. The main floor laundry room off the kitchen offers a half bath and second door to the back deck, creating a very functional mudroom that you will use every day.
Ideally situated in N. Albany the home offers an easy commute to Albany, Corvallis, and surrounding areas, as well as parks, wineries, and impressive restaurants. The location is prime for those desiring a little bit of land and a property destined for a new chapter to be written in the home’s history book. Welcome Home!
