213 Columbian Ave: $5,000 Off Closing Costs!

Looking for a home in Rutland that is close to work and downtown’s amenities AND provides easy access to the great outdoors?

Dream of being able to bike to work? To walk to the Farmer’s Market?

Is this your first home? Are you working within a limited budget?

This might be the perfect home for you.

At $106,000, this three bedroom home is a steal – to say this seller is motivated would be an understatement.

They’re even willing to pay up to $5,000 of the closing costs!

You won’t find this value for this price anywhere else.

Lovingly Cared For Historic Colonial Home

With a well-preserved wood shingle exterior, this classic Colonial home on Columbian Avenue in Rutland City exudes classic Vermont charm.

Three-season room.

After walking through the front door, you enter into a three-season room that looks south-east, welcoming the morning sun over the Green Mountains (Killington Peak is featured prominently, capped with snow throughout the winter).

This room would be perfect to enjoy in the mornings with a hot cup of coffee while wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket or during a thunderstorm to watch the lightning skitter across the valley – you might even catch a rainbow afterwards!

Once inside, you’ll enjoy the beautifully-maintained hardwood floors and woodwork that provide a cohesive theme throughout the home.

The first floor features a spacious living area complete with a fireplace to keep you cozy on chilly winter nights, a dining room where the sunlight streams in through large windows, and a country kitchen with plenty of space for cooking and entertaining.

The main floor features a mudroom just inside the back entrance to the house, a walk-in pantry, and a full laundry area.

Upstairs you’ll find three bedrooms that offer enough room for your family to grow in, as well as the home’s bathroom. All three bedrooms have windows framed with gorgeous original woodwork that offer views of downtown Rutland and the Green Mountains beyond.

Worry-free and Affordable

This home has been recently updated with a roof, furnace, and hot water tank, leaving you worry-free about these big-ticket items.

The peace of mind that will come from knowing you won’t have to replace these features soon after moving in can be channeled into creativity to customize the cosmetics of this home to suit your taste.

Additionally, the house is an incredible deal. For a 30-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage with a $5,000 Down Payment, you’d be looking at $635 per month – much less than renting the same size apartment or house in Rutland.

Relax in a Private Backyard

Outside, you’ll find a front yard with lush, green foliage, and a backyard with ample parking space and a yard large enough for a garden or a play area for the kids.

The fenced-in backyard provides an oasis from the city and offers privacy so you can relax without concern.

The driveway is perfect for a basketball hoop so it can be designated as the go-to after-school hangout spot for your children and their friends, and you can sit and watch from the screened-in porch off the kitchen.
