RURAL FARMSTEAD

Country living at its finest on this 6.40 acre farmstead in Central North Dakota located in Wells County near the city of Cathay.  The farmstead is very centrally located to the four major cities in North Dakota being approximately 2+ hours in any direction, the closest cities of Fessenden, New Rockford and Carrington are all less than 30 minutes.  The home is 1 mile from a hard surfaced road  (State Highway #30) so there is only a mile of gravel to travel which is not very common when in a rural setting!

 

The ranch style home was built in 1960 with approximately 1348 square feet of living space on the main floor while the basement is finished with another 1288 square feet of living area.  The home has been kept in immaculate condition and should certainly be move in ready. Just arrive with your furniture and you will be ready to go!

 

The home has an attached 2 stall garage that has been finished with a floor drain and heated with an electric heater, WOW!  The heated garage has to be a wonderful addition in the winter and with the floor drain it should stay reasonably dry while the snow melts from under your car during our North Dakota winters.

 

As you enter the home through the garage there will be a large open area that will either take you directly into the large laundry/mudroom with plenty of storage space and the washer and dryer which will stay with the home.  The laundry room also has a bath that includes a shower with no tub, this is certainly a nice feature especially if you have been out wor More

As you enter the home through the garage there will be a large open area that will either take you directly into the large laundry/mudroom with plenty of storage space and the washer and dryer which will stay with the home.  The laundry room also has a bath that includes a shower with no tub, this is certainly a nice feature especially if you have been out working in the yard and need to clean up before tracking through your home. 

 

From the laundry room you can either go to the finished basement or a couple of steps up into the well designed kitchen.   The kitchen was renovated in 2003, the cabinets are beautiful with a large pantry to store all those daily needs while preparing meals.  The kitchen has an eating counter with four (4) built in stools so there is never a need to be pushing chairs out to sit down, this is a real neat feature.  The kitchen comes complete with appliances, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave.   There is lighting above the kitchen cabinets which certainly is a real touch of class!  It shows up very nice during the daylight hours and outstanding when it is dark.

 

The dining area is directly between the kitchen and the living room.  This is possibly where you would be serving those large holiday or special occasion meals to family and friends. There is a patio door that leads from the dining area to the front entrance.

 

The living room has a couple of eye catchers with a beautiful bay window with finish that glistens in the sunlight and a custom-made fireplace and entertainment center.  The entertainment center has doors that swing open and the fireplace operates on propane so no mess to clean up after using.  The living room is spacious enough for your furniture needs with the large bay window allowing an abundance of light to enhance the rooms interior.

 

There is an extra-large bathroom with a corner Jacuzzi tub and shower along with a large vanity, stool and sink.  At one time this had been another bedroom is the reason for being so spacious.  There is also a storage closet in this room with mirrors on the door.

 

The room that had been the bathroom has been converted into a dressing room with a vanity and large mirror with plenty of lights, should be a great spot to use before heading out for the day.

 

The main floor has 1 bedroom while the basement or lower level has 3 additional bedrooms however there are no egress windows.  The basement is a block basement which should not be a real difficult task to install an egress window if that would be a concern of you, the new home owner.

 

This lower level also has a full bath with tub and shower, with the easy access from the back entry this could be another option when coming in and needing to get cleaned up in a hurry.  There is a very large family room which could be your special place to watch a football game or possibly just relax while reading a book.  If you enjoy a daily fitness schedule this could be a great spot for a treadmill or other exercise equipment.

 

The furnace is a high efficiency forced air furnace that operates on propane, the seller owns two propane tanks (1000/500) by owning the tanks it is the home owners’ option of who they   purchase their propane from.  The home also has a reverse osmosis system for the water system as well as a water softener.  The home’s water is rural water provided by Central Plains Water District, there are also two outdoor hydrants near two of the Quonsets.  The water heater was new in 2017.  The electrical is a 200-amp breaker system while there is also a standby generator in the event here should be a loss of electricity.  There is central air for those hot and muggy summer days.  The home has its own private septic.

 

The exterior has a beautiful bricked front entry and metal siding, the home has new windows and doors that were installed during the renovations taking place in 2003. 

 

There are several very functional out buildings.

 

34’ x 64’ Shop and Storage Building with steel siding, there is also an insulted and heated front shop in this building with the back portion being cold storage, there is a rural water hydrant next to the front door.

 

49’ x 96’ Steel Storage Building with a good concrete floor, this building has a hydraulic overhead door and another rural water hydrant next to the entrance.  This hydrant has a connection that will take you to the garden area where it supplies water during the growing season, this line must be blown out during the winter months.

 

37’ x 61’ Storage Building with steel siding.  There is an elevator next to this building with a grain dryer that is not hooked up along with a bagging machine, flax finisher and a number of items needed to have operated as a farmer’s home elevator, this has not been used since the present owners purchased the property in 2002.

 

I f you enjoy peaceful surroundings and a beautiful setting look no further!!  It is difficult to find a rural farmstead and one that is move in ready, the well manicured yard is surrounded by tall trees and is very private as well.  Take a chance, take a look, this may be the one!!
