Location, size, view, quality and comfort all rolled into one! This charming home with high and dry river frontage has seen extensive remodeling while retaining the original stone structure. Step into a gorgeous kitchen with large center island, granite counters, stainless appliances, built-in desk and adjacent dining area. Just off the kitchen is a large living room which leads to a spacious family room featuring a gas fireplace and beautiful bar. The shelving unit behind the bar came from “The Barn”, a piece of Independence history which will stay with the property. Big windows and French doors provide spectacular views and make the transition from indoors to outdoors almost seamless. A generously-sized master bedroom was added in 1991 and the main floor bath was just remodeled in 2018 with tiled shower, double vanity and laundry closet. A semi-open staircase leads to two more bedrooms and an updated full bath. A rear, recently enlarged deck is perfect for entertaining while providing panoramic views of the river and wooded areas. Other great amenities include a 2-stall attached garage plus a dream 28’x54’ shop built in 2000, finished and heated. This peaceful and secluded location offers a big yard for kids and pets to run, big hill for sledding and all kinds of wildlife.
