At $110,000, you won't find a better priced unit. 2 smaller bedrooms were converted into one large one, so this is now a 2 bedroom, but could easily be made back into a 3 bedroom. The inside could use some updating but is certainly very liveable. The detached workshop at the back does not have power but it could be added. This mobile has just had an electrical inspection and everything is up to code. New roof this year on the home, porch & shed. Furnace has just been serviced & new bathroom flooring! Ready for new owners. All measurements are approx. and should be verified if important.
