Seeking a new home with a huge, amazing yard in Sparta? Whether you desire a historic Cape Cod or a gorgeous Colonial, Team Nest Builder has you covered with OPEN HOUSES for 2 Sparta homes, both with fantastic yards, this Sunday, July 21st from 1-3 p.m.!
Fall in love with this charming 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Cape Cod, tucked away up a private drive on 4.54 picturesque acres, surrounded by majestic trees and fun trails. Sparta’s 135 Sterling Hill Road is the home you’ve been seeking!
According to local lore, this 1913 character-filled gem was built for nearby Sterling Hill Mine’s head miner. You’ll be transported back to a simpler time when gathering together in front of the rustic, decorative stone fireplace in the family room, or curling up with a good book in the 2nd floor dormer reading nook.
Useful additions include a first-floor laundry room and home office as well as a welcoming screened-in porch perfect for entertaining while viewing the gorgeous backyard.
The newly-restored 2-stall barn offers space for storing quads or dirt bikes to be used on the beautiful property’s trails, or could be renovated into a future art studio or private getaway zone. The property is zoned for horses and offers a perfect home for them, both in terms of the lovely land and the barn.
An oversized, detached 2-car garage means plenty of parking and work/storage space, and the large basement offers additional storage space.

4 Mill Creek Road, Sparta
Located in the lovely Sparta Mountain Reserve, this fantastic home greets you with gorgeous landscaping including a boulder wall that winds around to this 1.19-acre property’s crowning glory: the backyard. Deep and flat with a back section that opens up to the approximate size of a small soccer field, there’s a horseshoe pit on the left, and on the right a bocce court rests next to the large fire pit area. Built-in lights employing underground electric and a 4-speaker stereo system resounding from the nearby utility shed complete the entire experience of outdoor fun for everyone.
Overlooking the backyard is a huge, cedar, screened-in porch right off of the kitchen--great for year-round entertaining or a relaxing meal al fresco--and an open rear deck that’s perfect for lounging in the sunshine.
Inside, discover the stunning kitchen with newer appliances and granite countertops. It flows into the breakfast area and spacious family room, complete with a wood-burning fireplace. Don’t miss the new hardwood-laminate floors throughout these rooms!
The dining room is perfectly situated off of the kitchen and living room/game room, both rooms of which are finished with top-of-the-line Silhouette shades.
Lovely French doors open into the first floor office. There’s even a first-floor bonus room to be used any way your heart desires---toy room, craft room, private teen hang-out space--it’s up to you!
Upstairs, the gorgeous master bedroom boasts a huge walk-in closet. Double showerheads in the skylit master bathroom shower bring you to life in the morning or wash away your cares at the end of the day. Prefer a bath? Slip into the corner Kohler whirlpool tub. New granite countertops and sinks (both in the master and in the hall’s full bathroom) complete this serene space.
Sunlight softly fills the three additional, spacious bedrooms, and the laundry chute makes life a little easier. At nightfall, listen to the tree frogs and crickets quietly serenade you to sleep.
The large lower level is pre-plumbed for a bathroom and offers a hot tub-ready walk-out patio.
Updates include a brand-new furnace, driveway, front steps, front door, entry lights and window shutters; a newer AC system and hot water heater; and gutters routed to underground drainage away from the home. 4 Mill Creek Road is wired with an Onkyo sound system. A 3-car garage offers loads of space.
