2 Driveways:
The most interesting part of this property is the 2nd driveway which loops around to the rear where there exists a huge paved parking area (could easily park 20 cars), a fully improved 2,000 SqFt LARGE WORKSHOP (used to be a barn), and a separate RV Canopy Cover which has electricity.
Plus there is still lots of room left over for more improvements and/or a small orchard!
The 2,000 SqFt Workshop (converted from barn in 1997) is fully sheetrocked and includes 3 rooms PLUS extra deep and extra wide 2 car garages each with its own roll-up door. 220 Wiring, Overhead Flouresecent Lights and many more conveniences make this the utlimate layout! The wiring and sheetrock were done to code, according to the owner, but no permit was taken out for these two items. The owner is currently working on the final permit for the barn/workshop, which just requires a site drawing.
