Unique Wayne property for Sale with a Persimmon orchard located in back.
Custom built home in the 1930’s, this 2300 sq. ft. 4-bedroom house built by builder for personal use. The house has original upgraded features including chestnut wood molding, hardwood floors and staircase (American Chestnut is now almost extinct) throughout the house. Radiant gas heat with high-tech furnace (very energy efficient) and stain glass window in the dining room. This is an estate sale and house needs updating and has lots of potential. Property is located on high elevation with dry basement. The house has one full bath and a one car garage. There is a large Generac Home Standby Gas generator included in the sale.
The back of the property was purchased from the Van Duyne’s farmers which later became Van Duyne Ave and extends behind the homes on Van Duyne Ave and High Street.
The Persimmon trees on the property were developed by my dad, Henry Hartmann. This is unique since most Persimmon’s grow in a much warmer climate. However, my dad was able to start and cultivate the orchard. For years my dad had a landscaper bring him leaves to use as mulch, creating very fertile soil. This land would most likely qualify for organic certification. The property is assessed as farmland, so the tax rate is low at $7497.
