Built with high-quality oak from the Meadow River Lumber Company, this quaint, comfortable 2-bedroom cottage on Rupert’s main street has been recently updated and is turnkey ready. A stone foundation and flowerbeds accent its tidy, well-kept appearance, and its vinyl siding and metal roof require relatively little upkeep. Some rooms feature the original 1934 tongue-and-groove oak wall paneling.
A flagstone walkway leads up brick steps to the covered, elevated front porch, which has plenty of room for rockers and a porch swing. The entry opens into the living room, which has oak flooring, painted oak paneled walls, crown molding and a ceiling fan.
The dining room, which separates the living room from the kitchen, has stained oak paneling, sturdy Pergo laminate flooring and a propane gas fireplace with a wood mantel.
White cabinetry in the kitchen is offset by attractive butcher block-style laminate countertops. There is a double stainless steel sink with a garbage disposal. Appliances conveyed with the sale include a Whirlpool electric range with a vented hood and a Kenmore dishwasher. A Frigidaire refrigerator-freezer is negotiable. The kitchen flooring is Pergo. A small breakfast nook overlooks the back patio, providing an ideal spot to enjoy morning coffee or grab a quick snack.
A laundry room with laminate flooring is next to the kitchen. The laundry features a Speed Queen washer and dryer. Primarily a manufacturer for commercial laundries, Speed Queen also builds home appliances known for their durability and longevity. In fact, the average Speed Queen washer will do 8 loads of laundry a week for 25 years! The laundry room exits to the back yard.
The master bedroom has oak flooring, a walk-in closet and a ceiling fan. The bath has a shower-tub combo, a vanity with an integrated sink, and a linoleum floor. The second bedroom has wall-to-wall carpeting (with oak flooring underneath), a closet and a ceiling fan.
The home’s basement, accessed from outside, is essentially a ¾ utility and basement with a built-in 3 x 15-foot storage ledge. The basement maintains a constant year-round temperature of 55°, and includes a sump pump. The home is heated by a Trane electric furnace capable of accepting the addition of air-conditioning, and is supplied with water and sewer by the town of Rupert.
The back yard has a stone and concrete patio, a 24 x 36-foot metal garage capable of housing as many as 6 vehicles, and a separate heated 14 x 16-foot studio/workshop.
Accessible, comfortable and located in a friendly neighborhood, this compact and cozy home is affordable and move-in ready.
