Unique Log And Stone Home, Pond And Abundant Wildlife


I don’t want to overuse the phrase “one of a kind”, but I don’t see this type of log cabin very often. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with a wrap-around covered porch as well as a downstairs covered porch. The geothermal heating and cooling make for some very low energy bills. The home, which is on city water,  sits on a 2.5-acre pond that is stocked and loaded w bluegill, bass, and catfish. The logs in the home are predominately red and white oak. The home has a 6 camera security system. The pond has several areas with fish structures as well as an aeration system to keep the fish and pond healthy. The high fenced area on the northeast side of the property used to have a few elk in it but now has cattle and a pond. There are about 6 acres on the west side of the driveway currently being cut for hay that could be transferred into tillable. There is a 1600 SF metal barn with city water and electric that serves as a workshop. Not far from that is a 120’x24’ metal storage lean-to that holds tractors and other essential farm items. About half of the timber was select cut a few years back which makes for very good bedding and cover. The other half has not been cut so the timbered portion of this tract is diverse with lots of hardwoods. If you will look at my second aerial you will see that this tract is in the middle of a big line of timber running east to west creating a giant travel corridor for deer. Last but certainly not least is the fact that the largest man-made lake in the state, 25000-acre Carlyle Lake, is only 10  minutes from this property. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind home in the country that offers fantastic hunting and recreational opportunities, please call me today.
