Hand Hewn Log Home With Multiple Outbuildings In Indiana


PRICE REDUCED! If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a naturally beautiful area, on acreage in a hand-hewn log home, here is your chance. This is a unique opportunity to own a genuine piece of well-preserved history. The original log home was built in 1898. Additions with modern conveniences have been added in the mid to late 90’s forward creating a perfect combination of old and new.  When you experience the natural beauty of this area, you’ll see why so many have called this place home. Just off the paved county road you’ll enter the property and notice a beautiful and modern bridge that crosses Dillard Creek, a creek with year-round flow.  Continue down the meandering drive and park in any available spot in the 4+ space carport next to your year-round home or spectacular weekend getaway. The choice is up to you, and the options are many. Enter the home, and you’ll immediately want to grab a chair in the cabin and perhaps warm yourself next to the woodstove, enjoy the drink of your choice and think about times of ole. Continue through the home, and you’ll find two bedrooms, areas that can be converted or used as additional bedrooms and three bathrooms, a sizeable kitchen and dining room any chef would love to have, seating areas with ample natural light and extensive views of the fields and woodland areas surrounding the home. The main house contains approximately 2,293 square feet on the main floor and an additional 976 square feet upstairs. Like to swim? Step right out your back door and jump into the above ground swimming pool and cool off on a hot summer day. Want to be a farmer or grow the garden you’ve always dreamed of? You’ll have no shortage of good soil to plant your garden, and you may even want to grow a commercial crop on the tillable acreage. You’ll likely appreciate the 40X30 pole barn to store all your toys and maintenance equipment. Multiple outbuildings and a chicken house are located on the property as well. If you like to fish, you are going to look forward to wetting a line in the fully stocked pond. The current owner has fished and stocked the pond for many years now and tells me the new owner will not be disappointed and better be ready for a whopper. If you like to hike and hunt, you’ll have no shortage of fun here. As you travel throughout the timberland, you’ll see signs of deer, turkeys and other desirable species throughout. This tract is adjacent on two sides with Hoosier National Forest so you’ll have miles and miles of timberland where you can hunt, hike and enjoy every aspect of the natural world. Mushrooms, blackberries and other wild edibles can be found here. Walk the creeks and fields, and you might even find an arrowhead. Do you own a boat and enjoy time on the water? If you do, you’ll like the convenience of the short drive to Patoka Lake and 25,600 acres of woods, water and your next adventure. Shown by appointment only with advanced notice!
