The long-vacant ranch house at Sportsman's Lane and Street Road is now for sale, with an asking price of $399,900. The weeds and vines that choked the property have been cut down, the interior has been completely renovated, the swimming pool has been cleaned and filled and furniture has been imported for "staging" purposes.
The 1,800-square-foot house was built in 1969 and sits on an acre.
I had to laugh at the real-estate listing agent's description that it's located on "a quiet, no-outlet street." Perhaps he didn't realize that there's a popular gun club right across the road.
The house was the source of annual complaints from a next-door neighbor, who would attend township meetings to tell the supervisors that weeds from the neglected property were trespassing onto her property.
