Nibble a bit of Hempstead house history
An antique corn crib -- a structure traditionally used for storing and drying corn -- comes with this 1958 Hempstead farm ranch.
The homeowner, Jean Dubson, says the corn crib was on the property when she bought the house The previous owners stored wood for the fireplace there, Dubson says. She never used it herself -- and her fireplace has since been converted to gas, she says.
The house and corn crib sit on a landscaped 111-by-175-foot lot that also features a circular drive in front and many flowering trees. “The backyard is set up like a park,” says the listing agent, Michael Fink of Laffey Fine Homes.
The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is listed for $649,000.
