Rustic Homestead And Pond Adjoining Shawnee National Forest


Enjoy all that nature has to offer in this cozy rustic home located in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest! The home and grounds have been well cared for and offer the “lodge” feel as soon as you pull into the drive. You’ve got gated access with tons of privacy, yet on a hard top road. The home features 3,500SF of living space with the main level, basement and lofted bedroom. There are a total of 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The giant stone fireplace in the living room spans from the floor to the vaulted ceiling and offers a warm place to sit during those crisp, fall evenings. You’ll notice the owner has capitalized on all that the area has to offer by showing off various animal mounts, local treasures, and custom memorabilia from his time on the farm.  The main level has a very open concept with the kitchen, dining and living room all sharing one, large area. It has a finished basement with 2 bedrooms, a bath, and guest quarters with a kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom. A covered carport provides storage for vehicles and a spacious back deck is a great place to soak in the scenic views. Beside the home is a large barn with a loft, stalls, multiple sliding entry doors and a covered lean-to shed. Just off the back of the barn are 5 acres of pasture, a stocked pond and 9 acres of timber. The area has so much to offer if you enjoy being outdoors. If you’re looking for a rustic home surrounded by nature, then give us a call for a private showing!
