Looking for peace and quiet? This is the perfect retreat. Encompassing 98 acres, approximately 55 acres of the property are wooded. Enjoy the meadows, hike through the woods to the tallest hill on the property, swim or fish in the pond in summer, ice skate on the pond and ski at Elk Mountain (35 minutes away) in winter. A dirt/gravel township road leads to the only house on Ainey Road, a circa 1900 farmhouse overlooking an almost 1-acre spring-fed pond replete with waterlilies, tall grasses and plentiful fish. Centered in the house's facade is a traditional front door, opening into an entrance hall with a beautiful walnut staircase, railing and newel. To the left is a large living room with oak flooring, a Franklin Stove and a sliding door to access the southern deck. A large dining room with a bay window breakfast nook is found on the right. The ceilings in all the front rooms are tall and airy at 11' 4". Large windows flood the rooms with light. Enjoy the views up and down the valley of approximately 50 acres of fields, Hop Bottom Creek, and wetlands. The southern-facing, open deck off the living room can be enjoyed almost year-round, as the house protects viewers from the wind and the sun warms the deck. Beyond the dining room is a kitchen, mud room and window-enclosed porch that runs along the entire north side of the house. The porch, a perfect place for cool dining in the summer, has a view of the 4, 000 sq. ft. bank barn (one of the largest in Susquehanna County) and of a second smaller spring-fed pond beyond. The second floor has 4 bedrooms with large windows. Each floor has a full bathroom. Spruce hardwood floors are found in all the bedrooms, as well as the entrance and upstairs halls. The dining room has wall-to-wall carpeting. Linoleum was used in the kitchen, bathrooms and mudroom. Hand hewn beams in the basement support the structure. Oil heating has 2 zones; there is baseboard heating in all the rooms. I-167, a State-paved road, borders the property on the east. Ainey Road, a Township Road, runs through the north-south length of the property. Enrolled in the Clean & Green program. Oil, Gas & Mineral Rights are NOT conveyed. No right to drill on site or easements for pipes has been given. Montrose, the Susquehanna County seat, is 5 1/2 miles to the northwest. 3 hours (151 miles) to the Lincoln Tunnel New York City; and 3 hours (154 miles) to City Hall in Philadelphia.
