Property Photo


Welcome home to this historic family farmhouse... complete with what's believed to be the biggest yard in Cerro Gordo! Yes, it feels like the country... (yet in town, just 5 blocks from the school), complete with a picture perfect insulated chicken house & a view of horses galloping in the back! The wraparound front porch greets you with warmth the second you pull up. Step in and this home embraces you... you can tell it so wants a new family! Warm hardwoods... original trim, floors and sets of pocket doors... even a sunny window seat. Big windows let in lots of natural light, emphasized by the soaring tall ceilings. Even the piano used for teaching lessons by the original owner is still on display... she charged 25 cents apiece! There are as many as 6 bedrooms with up to 3 on the main level along with the laundry, and plenty of storage in the basement below. The super oversized lot, 2.5 car garage and newer roof are just the icing on the cake! Cosmetic love is wanted here, but such a gem this one is! Small town living and schools, yet an easy 15-20 minute drive to Decatur.
