Description

The thing I love the most about this home is that in less than 3 minutes you can walk to either of the theatres, the bank, post office, grocery stores, shops, and pubs. And its only a 5 minute walk to Paonia Park with the farmers markets, concerts, and community events. You will rarely need to use a car for anything. The home was built in 1900 by Paonias co-founder Samuel Wade. It was originally built as a birthing center and hundreds of babies were born here. Its origins hail from an era where self-reliance was the only way of life and you lived by what you produced. This home has three sources of very reliable water and a full acre of highly desirable river bottom soil where everything grows more easily. There are several varities of sweet and pie cherry trees. Plus apples, mulberries, apricots, blackberries, and grapes. The the rich soil and milder climate in the town valley means everything grows more quickly. There are enough elms that you can be firewood self-reliant in your own yard. While the house is walking distance to everything in Paonia, it is surprisingly private. Another unique aspect of this home is that while it is surrounded by the town of Paonia, it was never annexed and is still only in Delta county. This is valuable as you will be able to make modifications or add buildings very quickly with minimal regulations or oversight. The home has been upgraded in all of its the major structural components: new 50 year metal roof, new heating system, complete electrical re-wiring, hot water system, insulation for roof and walls, well pump and pressure tank, and more. The home has a lot of thermal mass which keeps it naturally warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We were just about to begin the fun interior cosmetic upgrades when an unforeseen situation arose and I have to sell. The interior is clean, functional, and livable but could definitely use some upgrades. The home comes with appliances and basic furnishings so you can setup here in Paonia immediately. The yard is fully fenced and dog ready. This home has had very few changes of ownership in its long history. It is an extremely rare property in a class by itself. If you understand the value of self-sufficiency, a healthy relaxed pedestrian lifestyle, and owning a piece of history then this is the home for you.
