Farmhouse With Pasture And Barns In West Central IN

Description

Have you ever dreamed of living in a beautiful farmhouse at the end of a long driveway with barns and pasture for your animals? If so, you need to take a close look at this property. This home has 3,152 sq ft of finished living space. It was built in 2001 and has five large bedrooms with two full baths and a half bath. The large kitchen and dining room is the perfect location to gather with friends and family. Additionally, there is an office with skylights, storage room, and two decks on the main level. The home was built to last and be extremely energy efficient starting with the insulated concrete forms used on the 1,968 sq ft unfinished basement and framed with 2x6s above ground. Outside the home, there are numerous buildings for your animals, equipment, vehicles, and storage. Next to the house is an oversized 28’x44’ three-car garage.  Then across the driveway is a 38’x66’ building with a 10’x50’ lean-to currently used to operate the farm store.  This building has a 4.3kW solar panel system installed. Behind this building is a 42’x56’ barn used to house animals and equipment. If that is not enough, there is an additional 30’x36’ building. Let’s talk about the land now. This is a property where you can get most of your groceries from the land the first summer. Surrounding the house are several mature apple and peach trees. In the woods, a native Indiana fruit tree, the pawpaw, grows naturally.  There are also berry and asparagus patches. A hoop house that is approximately 30’x72’ can be used to grow veggies year-round. There are approximately 19.9 acres of fenced-in pasture used for horses, cattle, pigs, and poultry that has been rotationally grazed for years to maximize its productivity. There are 17.8 acres of well-managed forest with only mature trees harvested as needed. It is a mix of hard and softwood trees. Besides the pawpaw trees, this forest has another very unique characteristic you rarely see in this part of Indiana. It has a large number of hard maple trees, which are used to make maple syrup. The current owner reports being able to produce approximately 100 gallons of syrup per year. This property is currently used to operate a farm-to-fork operation selling healthy food in the local area. The home is currently heated with firewood; however, it could easily be converted to a gas furnace. Additionally, there are no outlets/lights, but the wiring has been run for a quick and easy installation. There is a walk-in cooler, freezer, generator and farm equipment not included in the sale, but the owners are open to including them. There is so much to say about this amazing property as I have just scratched the surface. This is truly a must-see property to fully appreciate its beauty and possibilities.
