IN-TOWN ACREAGE ON THE RIVER

Overview

Location, size, view, quality and comfort all rolled into one!! This charming home with high and dry river frontage has seen extensive remodeling while retaining the original stone structure. Step into a gorgeous kitchen with large center island, granite counters, stainless appliances, built-in desk and adjacent dining area. Just off the kitchen is a large living room which leads to a spacious family room featuring a gas fireplace and beautiful bar. The shelving unit behind the bar came from 'The Barn', a piece of Independence history which will stay with the property. Big windows and French doors provide spectacular views and make the transition from indoors to outdoors almost seamless. A generously-sized master bedroom was added in 1991 and the main floor bath was just remodeled in 2018 with tiled shower, double vanity and laundry closet. A semi-open staircase leads to two more bedrooms and an updated full bath. A rear, recently enlarged deck is perfect for entertaining while providing panoramic views of the river and wooded areas. Other great amenities include a 2-stall attached garage plus a dream 28'x54' shop built in 2000, finished and heated. This peaceful and secluded location offers a big yard for kids and pets to run, big hill for sledding and all kinds of wildlife...
