FEATURE HOME:

2437 WOLVERTON ROAD, JACKSON TWP.

All the beauty of old-time craftsmanship with room to grow is situated among mature trees within a 6.16-acre property outside Eaton within Jackson Twp.

Listed for $429,000 by Country Mile Realtors, the vinyl-sided two-story at 2437 Wolverton Road has about 2,770 square feet of living space plus an enclosed breezeway, bonus room and full, semi-finished, walk-up attic.

The property includes a 34-by-24-foot metal barn with electric, concrete floor and oversized overhead door. There is also a cinderblock, two-car garage, a metal garden shed and an old livestock barn and silo.

A circular driveway allows access to all the outbuildings, and a walkway leads from the drive to the side-patio and breezeway entrance to the house.

Formal entry is from an updated covered front porch, which was updated with vinyl pillars and railing to mimic the original porch and a vinyl deck is accessible from the other breezeway entrance.

Formal entry into the farmhouse built in 1907 opens into a foyer with hardwood flooring, hand-crafted wood trim windows, columns and ornate newel post with spindled winding staircase. Columns sit upon wood-crafted partial divides that lead into the formal living room.

Pocket doors open from the living room into the bay bump-out parlor with a decorative fireplace. Green tile surrounds the wrought-iron opening and a wood mantel features molding with columns and mirror.

At the end of the foyer hallway, swinging doors open into the parlor and into the formal dining room. Pocket doors open from the parlor into the dining room as well. The dining room has hardwood flooring and a built-in china and linen cabinet with leaded-glass doors, drawers and a pass-through.

The original artwork railing is featured in all three formal rooms with brass hooks. Many of the original light fixtures have been worked to include LED lightbulbs.

The spacious kitchen has light cabinetry and white countertops. A window is above the sink, and an island has a gas range with retractable vent and breakfast bar seating for two. A wall has the original built-in storage cabinets and drawers. A pantry cabinet is next to the refrigerator nook, and the refrigerator was new in 2021.
