Welcome to the hamlet of Hartell which came into being in the spring of 1929. Situated on nine titles and being sold as one package you could own a unique piece of history. The charming farmhouse has been beautifully maintained and loved for almost 80 years. A friendly mix of the 1940's retro vibe with the modern conveniences, step back in time to Grandma's house and enjoy this solid bungalow that offers nostalgic built in cabinets a cozy gas fireplace in the sunny kitchen, spacious separate sitting room , 2 bedrooms and a full bath. The attractive storefront is attached to the rear of the farmhouse and operated as a busy mercantile for almost a century , currently used as a storeroom for antiques and collectables and 1920's display cases-which can also be procured- leaves an open 500 sq ft that can be repurposed for whatever opportunity you may dream. Situated in the best location that the Foothills has to offer between Black Diamond and Longview off the Tongue Creek Road with gorgeous mountain and foothills views as far as the eye can see! This can be a turnkey hobby farm for the right buyer, features a great little barn with calving pen, double detached quonset style double detached garage/shop. The North piece is 16.25 acres and is zoned agricultural (taxes are $50 a year), this is where the lambs play and has a pump house building and a few shelters. Cross fenced for sheep with a shearing pen and separate ram pen. Some antique farm equipment may be negotiated. The property has a 15,000 litre underground cistern (ADS did the work) that is intermittently filled in dry seasons. There is also a house well with in house filtering system and pump. Some great updates: Furnace is approx 10 yrs old, electric was done in the 70's or 80's. Eavestrough done in 2021. As you can imagine, properties such as these come once in a lifetime, how many folks can say that they own a hamlet in Alberta! (id:38235)
