just some snapshots of our home in Potter County, PA that we are listing for sale this week.
You can see lots more photos on my personal page on Facebook.
This is where we’ve lived for the past 6years…. and what we’ve been fixing up. It was an awesome home. Perfect in many, many ways…. .but it’s time to move on and let someone else enjoy the peace we felt there…. surrounded by nature.
#114 Pleasant Ave, Coudersport PA

Built in 1977
House is about 1000 square feet, which does NOT include the basement. This house sits on a double lot. We have intentionally left almost one full lot as native grass space because we have deer and such that visit daily and like to sleep in the shade of our trees. The property borders with woods on 2 sides, and a small natural creek. The house next to us is unoccupied. It is very quiet and peaceful up here, and we see the best sunsets from our front deck.
We have taken many trees down (that needed to come down), and we've planted fruit trees, berry bushes and lots of herbs. It is a dead-end street that is plowed (it's technically in town, but feels like it's out in the woods).
There are 2 bedrooms and both have good sized closets. There is one bathroom. Large kitchen. Hall closet, big living room, and a stone fireplace. Furnace/ Baseboard heat.
We've had new Berber carpet installed in living room and both bedrooms. We've just painted everywhere! inside with neutral, fresh tones. We've put in new lighting in the bedrooms, hall, and bathroom. New heat/ light saving curtains in bedrooms. New faucet, new shower head, new exhaust fan in bathroom. Toilet is 2yrs old. New appliances! include an electric stove (oven hasn't even been used), washing machine and dryer. The fridge is older, but will stay, and works perfectly. The dishwasher was just serviced in March, and has new gaskets and such. All the electrical and all the plumbing were serviced and updated in January. An all new/automatic thermostat was also installed and the furnace was updated and inspected. Breaker box was updated in the basement. ToNS of new electrical outlets placed in the basement, along with studio lighting.
The basement functions as a car garage on one side, and studio space on the other. It has several layers of drylock paint. The dehumidifier will stay with the house, and keeps the basement.
The exterior was updated & painted in October. The fireplace was cleaned, as were the gutters. The roof was inspected and is great! A new screen door, new house sign, and new mailbox installed. New outdoor lights. The deck has been restructured and painted, also in October. The cinder block retaining walls were reinforced and painted as well. At the back of the house, is a concrete patio with an outside faucet, electric outlet, and raised garden beds.
We love this house. It is extremely well made, and has kept us warm and cozy in the winter (even when we've just used the fireplace) and cool in the summer (we get a nice breeze off of the hill). We are also leaving a practically new (used one summer) AC unit. It is fantastic.
In the basement, is a well containment system. We opted to leave the house on town water, but there is the option to use the well here. The water heater was new in 2011.
I will load some photos into an album here in the next few days. I hope you like what we've done.
