The outbuilding was used as a water tower but currently has an office downstairs and an unfinished room upstairs, each room is approx. 150 sq. ft.; not included in square footage of home. The barn is made of redwood and houses a garage, carport, large workshop (could be a 2 car garage and is approx. 550 sq. ft.) and stairs leading to a 2nd story unfinished room, about 900 sq. ft., which was used to host youth group gatherings. The lot contains many fruit trees including avocados, mandarin, oranges, pear and fig. The sprawling grounds can host gardens, RV's, and a pool. The barn has a sewer line and the lot can possibly be subdivided to add a home and driveway with access from the cul-de-sac adjacent to the property, please confirm with the city.
