26 Story Hill Road Chester NY – SOLD
I meant to write a post about a listing on 26 Story Hill Road, in the town of Chester NY and school district of Monroe-Woodbury. I put the home on the market on a Thursday afternoon, with the intent to spend some time the following day writing a blog about the property. But I never got around to it, because by Friday afternoon, the sellers had already accepted an offer at over list price, and had several backups in place.
What specifically sold so fast?
A two bedroom, two bath ranch style cottage on a two-acre lot. The description read as follows.
“If you have a desire for privacy, and an eye for potential, this is the home for you! This home is situated in the woods, surrounded by a natural preserve, but is also close to stores, schools, the rail trail, and more. This home was formerly a retreat for an artist and writer, and would be a perfect home for creative souls. The two bedroom, two bath cedar sided ranch home is situated down a gorgeous lane with canopied trees. There is a huge back deck that runs the length of the house and can be used to view deer, birds and other wildlife. Inside the main floor are two bedrooms, both with doors to the deck and wooded views. In addition, the kitchen and living room access the outdoors as well. There is a wood stove to supplement the oil heat, an extra room and bath downstairs, washer/dryer hookups and more. ”
What the listing did not say is that every time I visited the property, I would park my car, look around and almost invariably spot at least one deer. I also did not properly articulate that every single room in the home had access to the outdoors, most leading to a large deck that reached from one end of the house to the other. I did not get a chance to state that not only did the original owners love this home, but they brought love into this home. And I didn’t truly share how private and peaceful the area was (picture of driveway above).
I was going to share those observations in a post, but did not get the chance. But here is the information! It’s now too late for this house, but if this sounds like the type of house that would work for you, let me know! I’ll keep my eyes open, just in case something similar pops up at some time.
And that is the story of 26 Story Hill Road in Chester, NY! I wish the new owners all the love and peace I know that home will bring.
