Situated just a mile north of Highway 30, set this beautiful house, barn, workshop, and property. As you drive down the hard surface driveway, you can immediately feel this property's seclusion. There have only been three property owners over the last almost 100 years. The current owners love managing their own woodlands and have done so for over 30 years. Their latest project happened after the Derecho. They removed as many dangerous trees as possible, planted countless seedlings, and re-opened their fantastic walking trails. Even when you walk, it's hard to find a stick on the trail! They have planted many species of trees, including a variety of fruit trees and hardwoods. You will notice that the yard is not all the large of an area due to the various tree planting patches and asparagus patches they have! The raised bed garden behind the house produces well every year. The second bed is full of strawberries! Your most common visitors will be the deer and the turkeys. Almost every time I am on the property, I see one or both. It no doubt if you are a person who likes watching wildlife or pursuing them, your opportunities here will be abundant.
The house itself is cozy. The front entrance leads to the spacious family room, with a fireplace and great views of the northwest. The kitchen and sitting area is just off the family room, with a nice amount of space. There is a lower level main bedroom and laundry. However, it is up a couple of steps, as that space is slightly split level. The two-car attached garage is the other entrance to the property. There is ample room to have a workbench and some additional toy storage. There is a built-in doghouse inside to keep out of the elements and a half door for your pets to enter and out of the garage. The upstairs of the house has two smaller bedrooms. You could easily make them into one larger space.
The basement is functional, with workbenches, electrical panels, a water heater, and softeners, all easily accessible. The current owners use a significant catch-all room as a space for an additional bed. Additionally, there is a cold storage room where the garden bounty is stored overnight!
The pole barn has a lot of utilized space. 2 different mezzanines allow for more storage as the sidewalls. They are 12 feet. The overall space is 30X45. 2 sets of slider doors allow access from the west and the south. There is a ton of room for you to store all your toys and new ones that you may need.
The last structure on the property is the seller’s workshop. It is a rustic structure that has a lot of functionality. Additional storage areas for everything from lawnmowers to cars can fit. This space currently houses a lot of rough-sawn boards the seller has milled over the years.
