Back in the 1870s, when the village of Carversville was a bustling hub of artisans and craftspeople, a tinsmith built a stone and frame house and workshop overlooking the Paunacussing Creek and a greenspace where a few cows might be set out to pasture. Fast forward to the mid 20th century, and this property was purchased by the present owner’s family, who kept the house and converted the workshop/stable to create three rental units still used today, generating income that covers property taxes, insurance and other expenses. For being in the center of a village, walkable to the general store, post office and historical tavern/inn, the setting is fantastic, which you can appreciate when you look out from the dining room and rear deck. The creek, a pretty arched wooden footbridge and a park-like area with mature trees form a secret, scenic little world behind the houses that line this side of Aquetong Road. The house is a typical village house with hardwood floors, a large living room with brick woodburning fireplace, dining room with built-in breakfront and a galley kitchen with pass-through to the dining room. Notably, there is a side porch and rear deck accessible from the dining room, great indoor-outdoor flow for entertaining. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a full bath. The walkout lower level is set up as an efficiency apartment with a kitchen, full bath, and space to serve as a sitting room and bedroom. The property also has a two-car garage and offstreet parking, important amenities for village living. The three rentals have a strong history, with specifics available from the listing agents. They have their own entrances and are connected to the house via a courtyard area. This is a tremendous opportunity to join the Carversville community. Take this property into the 21st century, keeping the present house + 3 units or by creating one large home with delightful views and a location perfect for a leisurely stroll down scenic Fleecydale Road or a minute’s walk to the post office and general store.
