Small Acreage With Home And Outbuildings Near Flat Rock

Description

This farm is located southwest of Flat Rock and just west of IL-1. The property has a nice custom built home on it with most of the woodwork on the inside coming off the farm. The house has 7 nice sized bedrooms and three bathrooms. Most of the bedrooms are on the upper level with the kitchen, living room, and master on the main level. The dry basement is where you’ll find the laundry room, cellar, woodburning stove, and plenty of extra open room for storage. The house is hooked to rural water and Norris Electric with outside hydrants services by a well. 400 amp service is split with 200 going to house and 200 going to the shed. The siding is full-length poplar milled from the farm and is resistant to wood borrowing insects. As you exit the house, you’ll notice the large orchard just across the driveway with several apple, pear, and peach trees. There’s also a large grape arbor; the owner uses the grapes to make several gallons of grape juice every summer. When you enter the property in either the top or bottom driveway, you drive next to one of the two ponds located on the property that are fully stocked with bass, bluegill, catfish, and hybrid striper bass. Just north of the house is where you’ll find the two very large pole barns, both of which have concrete floors, electric, water, and the one is fully insulated. The current owner manufactures portable buildings, but both of these would make an excellent shop or room for another business. The buildings are also tall enough you could turn them into storage units for RV’s, campers, or boats. A nice barn is home to horses, a milk cow, and extra hay for the winter months. There is an approximately 3-acre pasture just outside the barn for hay or pasture for your horses or cows. The barn is set up for horses with a freezeproof auto watering system that’s hooked to well water.
