Built in 1819, the four-bedroom farmhouse at 4058 Storms Creek Road near Urbana was built by one of the first settlers to Mad River Twp.

The property is listed by Re/Max Alliance, Urbana for $279,900.

The home was originally built as an 18-by-18-foot, brick home. In the 1830s, the property was converted to a larger, two-story home. Indoor plumbing was added in the 1960s providing a full bathroom on the main floor.

There are three bedrooms upstairs and one bedroom downstairs. The house has interior and exterior walls that are three bricks thick.

The Champaign county home offers approximately 2,160 square feet of living space and is situated on 6 wooded acres. Special features include country views, hardwood floors, a wood-burning stove, several fireplaces, exposed brick, a formal dining room, family room, updated kitchen, updated full bathroom and many original features.

Exterior features include a five-stall horse barn, a deck, a 3-acre pasture, a fenced yard, a gated, gravel driveway, a detached, two-car workshop garage that is equipped with electric, and an abundance of mature trees. The home has a brick-and-vinyl exterior and a partial, unfinished basement.

This home offers both a living room and a family room. The living room features an open staircase, hardwood floors, crown molding and a large window. Features of the family room include a wood-burning stove, a fireplace, hardwood floors, a ceiling fan light fixture and two long windows.

Between these two living spaces is the formal dining room, which is loaded with historic charm. Features include a fireplace, hardwood floors, exposed brick and large windows that flood the space with natural light. Just off the living room is a room that could be used as an office or a study.

The updated kitchen boasts hardwood floors, plenty of wood cabinetry, an L-shaped work area that provides ample counter space, a glass-tile backsplash and an area for informal dining. The dishwasher, microwave and range are included in the price of the home.
