40 acres in Section 29 Township 148 Range 71 St Anna Township, Wells County
Have you been waiting for that perfect family home in rural North Dakota, well look no further this 40 acre farmstead will be the delight of your life!! The 3 bedroom ranch style home has an appearance of just being built as the renovations make it as near perfect as you will want. It is a home that should need no work, just move in and enjoy the peace and tranquility of rural living.
Access to the home is 6 miles west of Fessenden on old highway #15 which is a paved road and 2.5 miles south on a well maintained gravel road.
As you turn into the driveway you will see the immaculate surroundings which should give you a hint of what you will be seeing as you enter the home. The exterior of the home has all new steel siding, new windows, new doors and a new front step as well as a new metal roof in 2011.
The large two stall garage will be your point of entry; the garage is completely insulated and finished with an abundance of storage with cupboards and closets. The double door has an electric opener. Always warm and comfortable no matter what the weather may be.
As you enter the home from this location you will be in a large foyer with closet space for storage of your coats, boots and other articles from the outside, the laminate flooring in this area certainly makes it an easy place to keep clean. You have a couple of options from the foyer, the large spacious dining room (13'6x21) is directly to your right, this is the location where you will enjoy your meals and if you like a good barbecue the wooden deck is accessible through the patio doors in this room. The room has new laminate flooring which certainly is a smart idea when this is where your meals are being served. The sliding patio doors lead to the 12x14 wooden deck which gives you complete privacy in the back yard and easy access to your dining room. Directly off the dining room is one of the three bedrooms. This is an addition to the home that was completed in 1987, the two rooms have a combination heat source with forced air and electric baseboard, the great thing about the electric if it is a little chilly in the fall or spring when you are not about to turn the furnace on just dial the knob for instant heat.
The other avenue to take from the entrance foyer would be to journey into kitchen as you do the main floor bathroom will be just to your left with plenty of cabinets for storage of all of the needs a bathroom would have.
The large beautiful kitchen is a delight with the brightness and looks of a new home. The decorating and cabinets give this room an appeal that is hard to describe without seeing it in person. The laminate flooring and the well maintained cabinets should make this a model kitchen for the person who will be spending time doing those household chores. There is a center island possibly pull up a stool which would certainly making it the spot where you want to sit and enjoy your morning breakfast. There is a side by side refrigerator with an ice maker, glass top electric stove and oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal and a built in microwave. There is an abundance of cabinets for storage of those kitchen commodities and work items.
There is a family room adjacent to the kitchen with matching laminate and tile inlaid for a very comfortable look, when being in this area you get the feeling of being in a large furniture stores show room as things are so perfect it would seem it may be something a home decorator would have designed and laid out. There is storage as well with cabinets in the dining area that match the kitchen cabinets.
From the family room there is a step down into a sunken living room (13'6x17) the living room has three new windows facing to the south. You can sit here and see as far as your eyes will allow you look into the beautiful North Dakota Horizon. What a place to enjoy while entertaining friends or maybe just reading a good book. The front door of the home enters into this room.
The two remaining bedrooms can be entered from either the kitchen or near the front door. The large master bedroom (11x18) has space for all the furniture you may have, possibly that large king sized bed with dressers and lights.
The basement is partially finished, the present owners are using this area as a bedroom however it could very easily be a nice family room to possibly watch your favorite television show or maybe even a game room.. The basement does not have an egress window. There is plenty of storage in the basement with a pantry for canned goods or whatever your desire may be. The laundry room is in the basement along with a bath which includes a stool, vanity and shower. The high efficiency furnace (2005) runs on propane there is also a newer hot water heater (2007). There is a water softener in the home and the kitchen sink has a reverse osmosis system so there is a faucet where you can get water directly through that system which is just like bottled water, there are two outside faucets that do not go through the softener. The home also has central air conditioning; the electrical service consists of a 200 amp breaker box. The home is supplied by Rural Water from Central Plains Water District located in Fessenden. The basement has 2 sump pumps with a Beaver Drainage System to alleviate problems from possible water.
The large well kept and landscaped yard looks as good as the home does, there are flower beds with well established perennials, a garden area and a number of landscaped flower beds that certainly add to the beauty of the backyard. My goodness you can sit on the deck enjoying the beautiful surroundings while taking a break who knows you may even see a moose walk by!! While being in the back yard in early spring when the Lilacs are in full bloom the sweet aroma from the flowers will fill the air. The flowers and surroundings also attract a variety of birds to include the goldfinch, orioles, and the always intriguing and fascinating little hummingbirds.
There is a new 40x40 metal building by World Wide Steel, the ceilings are insulated so there will be no dripping of humidity on your animals or vehicles depending on what you decide to use the building for. The present owners have horses and cows and the plans for this building were to install box stalls maybe a tack room and use it for their horses. There are three overhead doors with one being a 10 foot door while the other two are 8 foot doors. The east side of the building has the fenced pasture right up to it for easy access of the animals into the barn, the flooring in this building is gravel. There is a rural water hydrant just next to the building outside of the fenced pasture while there is a Ritchie stock water in the pasture for the animals to have access to water. The pasture is fenced with a 4 wire fence and the fence around the barn area has sucker rods for stability and security. The pastures are separated with cattle in one pasture while there are horses in the other. The property owner also rents additional pasture and hay land from an area landowner.
If you already own animals this set up is certainly ready to go for you and if you have always wanted a horse and have never had a spot for it well look no further this is the spot!!
If you're an outdoorsman this may be an added bonus for you as there is an abundance of wildlife, there are plenty of pheasants, grouse, deer and there are even some moose filtering through the area and if you enjoy doing a little fishing there is some great fishing just a few miles from the property.
If you have been keeping your eyes open for the perfect farmstead look no further this place has everything you would ever need. The owners are retiring from their present occupations and leaving the area. A property in the condition this is in seldom comes on the market and when it does it may not remain for long.
Take a chance, make the move, and don't hesitate as you may be a day late! There is nothing better than North Dakota in the summer.
