OPEN HOUSE Historic 3BR Cape Cod on 4+ Idyllic Acres

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--see for yourself at our OPEN HOUSE this Sunday, September 8th from 1pm - 3pm.

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.
