BUXTON – The versatility of this spacious ranch in the quiet Chicopee neighborhood would be hard to beat.

It’s not only single-owner, but also single-level. It’s a great, affordable family home, on a one-acre lot with a huge field out back, with woods beyond – all essentially preserved land.

The property suits a multi-generational family, thanks to an attached in-law apartment that’s also on one level. Or, the apartment could serve as a rental that would provide significant income.

Alternatively, the apartment wing could become headquarters for an in-home business – perhaps a contractor or woodworker, who would benefit from the abundance of parking for several vehicles, and from the workshop in the oversized, two-car garage.

At present, the apartment wing’s upstairs has an office at the back, and a storage room with attached half-bath upstairs. This second level could readily be converted into a master suite (the bath has space to add tub or shower) thereby expanding the possibilities for family/rental occupation.

The home was built in 1991, and much more recently has been expertly and extensively expanded and updated by a seller determined to keep busy nights and weekends.

The main house has three bedrooms, with a fourth (now a bonus room on the lower level) possible. Living spaces, bright and finely finished, are introduced by a large mudroom. The open-concept, twin-skylit living room has a newer pellet stove and has been enhanced by built-ins, including an entire inner wall of them. Large, dine-in kitchen (with access to the deck)  and full bath are very nicely appointed.

And if interested, please inquire about the pretty little sugarhouse, which has water and electricity, and Internet, too.

The home at 201 Chicopee Road, Buxton, is listed for sale at $298,850 by Chris Cormier of RE/MAX Heritage in Yarmouth. (Tax amount: $4,278.)
