If you follow this blog on a regular basis, you can probably guess that I’m not a huge fan of new construction. My personal preference is for older homes, both for character and quality, but that doesn’t mean I can’t spot a good thing when I see it.
Take 14620 Old Halls Ferry, a 4300-square-foot house in unincorporated North County. Built five years ago using the owner’s custom plans, this place has loads of space and style. Truly, a perfect home for entertaining. But what has me really excited about this property (besides its 2200-square-foot garage/man cave) is that it sits on 14 acres, right at the edge of the Florissant Karst!
If you want privacy, you’ll definitely find it here. You’ll also find a lovely forest to explore, and row after row of fresh local corn. Even better, the house is located on a historic section of Old Halls Ferry, not far from the enchanting Coldwater Cemetery, which dates from the 1700s! It’s also within walking distance of Hammer Farm, where you can buy grass-fed local beef!
Of course, the price tag for all of this amazingness isn’t small. It’s $599,000. But good luck finding this kind of home, on this much land, for anywhere near that in the rest of the metro area!
14620 Old Halls Ferry is listed by Tina Bruce, Keller Williams Realty. It offers 4 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms, not including the full bath in the garage! And the garage also has a mini kitchen, workshop area, loft space and satellite TV!
