Looking for QUIET country living? Want plenty of SPACE for a few horses or animals, fruit trees and gardens? Or just a beautiful Nature-lovers RETREAT in the country? Give this HOBBY FARM a serious look!
One-of-a-kind, 27+ acre mini-farm is easily adaptable to many uses. It includes a flowing creek, 5 acres of existing hay fields and 16 acres of cash-generating CRP, of which about 5 acres could be removed and used for grazing or additional tillable/hay, with a 75.5 CSR average. When this was a family farm operation, the 4+ acres of the homestead included about 1.5 acres of fenced grazing areas, including a nice large paddock area north of the barn.These areas are currently mowed to create a park-like setting.
The STAR of this acreage is a beautiful, carefully-RESTORED 4 bedroom/2 bath, 1,984 finished sq.ft., 2-1/2 story historic BRICK Craftsman-style farmhouse.
