Cottage style home set up for urban homesteading. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. 590 sq ft. in Columbia, MO.
Large corner lot with timber on the end of a one block dead end street. 15,276 sq ft (0.35 acre)
Private location in the Sunny Slope subdivision on the edge of an urban forest which provides wildlife and plant biodiversity with foraging opportunities. (Ask me about the morel mushrooms!)
Various gardens, rain barrels, two sheds, rabbit hutch (or third shed), chicken coop and run, compost bins, and miscellaneous homesteading opportunities. Chickens that are already laying are included!
Organic, non-chemical practices always used for the 10 years I've lived here.
Gas stove, refrigerator, unattached microwave, washer/dryer included.
Carport and extra parking on street. Newly paved road.
Super low utilities with recent energy conservation updates. Central air, forced air heat
Attic insulation installed 2014. New flooring in living room and hallway. Three ceiling fans.
Vinyl siding that's easy to clean. Double pane windows.
Updated breaker box. Cable, satellite, internet ready.
Benton Stephens neighborhood with strong political involvement, neighborhood association meetings, active and accessible neighborhood association president, ward councilperson, and state representative.
Low crime in the area. Kid and pet friendly street.
Community gardens close in the neighborhood and adjacent neighborhood.
Walking/biking friendly. Short distance to all campuses, downtown, concert venues, microbreweries, bike shops, shopping areas including health food stores, yoga studio, and convenient stores.
Quick access to both highway 63 and 70 as well as public transportation.
Two nearby parks and swimming/fishing lake.
Hospital less than a mile on same road. Less than a mile away from the nearest fire department and 450 feet away from the nearest fire hydrant.
Two elementary schools and Montessori School, one middle school, and two high schools about a mile away.
Nearby hardware stores, horse stables, Habitat for Humanity resale store, farm and feed stores, and mulch sites.

Serious buyers that are ready-financed can make an appointment for showing. Once we are contracted I'll take an afternoon to show you details such as what grows well where, how I would prepare for the next season, where to get the best scraps for the chickens, etc. so you can hit the ground running.
