Home and Property, Blackfoot, Idaho – Comforts of City with the Feel of Country
This move-in ready brick home with metal roof was built in 1956. Significant changes give the main floor an open floor plan kitchen, dining and living room with vaulted ceilings. Flooring in this great room is all oak hardwood, and the kitchen cabinets are also oak. New double-hung windows in the living room make window cleaning easy. Since they open at both bottom and top, it is easy to cool the house in the early summer morning by opening them at both top and bottom.
The laundry room adjacent to the kitchen has a full set of upper and lower cabinets and a small pantry and there is space for an upright freezer and/or sewing area. There is a 3/4 bath off the living room. The master bedroom has a tiled full bath in addition to a plumbed vanity in the bedroom.
The downstairs has two offices with walk-in closets. A new owner can convert them to bedrooms if needed by adding egress windows and window wells. A cool storage room and mechanical room complete the downstairs. Window coverings and appliances currently in place will remain with the property.
A sun porch on the back of the house has beautiful, new, double-hung windows as well. If you like to fall asleep watching the stars, this is a perfect place to do that. There is also a Blaze King wood stove with catalytic converter for cold days when a fire gives the kind of heat only a wood stove can provide. For the stove, there are approximately 2 cords of blocked, split, dry, Lodge Pole wood.
The house has new doors at the front living room door, back door into the sun porch, and from the sun porch to the outside. The front door has a substantial locking, metal screen door, and the back sun porch door has retractable screen doors.
Heat is by fuel oil (new installation). The cost in the cold months of October-April averaged $50 per month. There is also a gas hookup already plumbed. Power is through Idaho Power, and water and sewer are through City of Blackfoot.
The property is .677 acre and has two (2) shares of irrigation water. Those water shares are sufficient to water the entire property and avoid the expense of using culinary city water for irrigation. The property is currently in use as an Austree tree farm, which defrays a great deal of the cost of owning the property. If you would like to purchase the business as well as the home, please let us know.
We have provided a number of photos of the trees. They make all the difference in keeping the home cool and provide a country feel to the home. In addition to the tree farm trees, there are three fruit trees (apple, apricot and plum), and various evergreen and deciduous trees.
There are three (3) outbuildings. The two insulated cinder block construction buildings have been built butted up against each other and appear to be one building. The other is a metal building. All three are on cement pads. There is a garden space or spot to build a large dream shop or garage. Excellent schools, safe neighborhood, and livestock/animal friendly.
