Welcome to the neighborhood! This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath split level house with wood-burning fireplace enjoys the best of town and country living. Located in the established Fountaindale North neighborhood of Middletown, it has convenient access to Middletown schools and to a growing and lively commercial and historical district, without city taxes or HOA fees, and mature wooded tree canopy. Neighbors know each other by name, chat over fences and when passing on the street, and check in with one another. Wake up in the mornings and wind down at dusk to birdsong (30+ species live or migrate through and others can be seen flying through, including bald eagles and other raptors), and enjoy antics of the furred neighbors, including bunnies, squirrels, chipmunks and deer.
Updates to the home include energy efficient windows on the main level (2010), 50-year roof with warranty that transfers to new owner (2011), new chimney lining (2015), pavers in patio (2012), sun tunnel in dining room (2013), built-in cupboards in 3 seasons room (2012), built-in cupboard and barn door installed in Primary Bathroom (2016), and washer, kitchen range and dishwasher replaced in the last 6 years. You'll love the rolling pull-out drawers in the maple cabinets, and the countertops, sink and backsplash were installed in 2018. A garden lines the paved patio and includes both culinary and apothecary herbs, including gotu kola, spearmint, sweet mint, sage, oregano, thyme, Korean perilla, and 2 types of strawberries — all have returned each spring when mulched well over winter. Around the yard, you’ll find fruits and herbs not common in the markets, including black currants, red currants, sour cherry (in 2021 the harvest was 6lbs for humans, with plenty left for our winged neighbors), wineberries, rhubarb, horseradish, garlic chives and the elusive ramps, as well as 2 kinds of blueberries. You’ll also find more medicinal herbs around the yard including lemon balm, comfrey, yarrow, rue, blue violets, clover and dandelions. The edibles and herbs have been tended with organic fertilizers and non-toxic pest management, including diatomaceous earth spraying and organic pesticides. Conveniently located near grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and commuter routes.
