This secluded property is fenced and gated and sits at the end of a county-maintained gravel road with a beautiful 40’X60’ combination home and shop building with rustic living quarters. 60% of this property is wooded with valleys and draws, while the remaining 40% is open fields with 8 acres of strategically placed food plots. Along with a great mix of green and grain food plots and the bedding cover, there are also three mature Pear trees and 10 Hybrid “Snow Pear” trees that have been fenced for the past 4-years. There are approximately 28 acres on the east side of Little East Locust Creek, and 52 acres on the west side of the creek accessible via an established UTV/tractor crossing rocked for a solid base. There are 15 acres of thick cedar and timber in the SW corner of the property that has been maintained and treated as a sanctuary for the past five years. Strategically placed roads, creek crossings and pathways, four Redneck “Buck Palace” box blinds, and four 20’ “Duke” by X-Stand - heavy-duty ladder stands have been strategically placed to make this one of the most prime hunting properties in the area. We’ve spoken about the land. Now let’s talk about the 40 X 60 shouse located perfectly on the property to enhance the entire experience.
This building is divided into (2) 30 X 40 sections for a total of 2400 sq. ft. with the following details: 12’ sidewalls, 2’ overhangs with 6” gutters, 20’ roof extensions, west side patio, two 11’ X 30’ side leans (on the north & south sides).
The shop side of the building features a 10’ overhead door for vehicles and equipment, four large sections of heavy-duty pallet racking to store implements, dual ceiling fans, above-mounted retractable airline supply and power cord extension, two large workbenches that roll on lockable wheels to move as needed and high-security personnel entry door. The shop ceiling and walls are Insulated, and heat/AC is available to this area via the GFA system. Power is via 200 AMP load center for all shop loads at the northeast entrance door and a 50 amp RV outlet. The utility room within the shop holds a separate 200 AMP load center for the house. The water is supplied from a 1,500-gallon underground storage tank via the water pump and pressure tank with low (300-gallon) indicator light, and there is an on-demand hot water system, stacked laundry, utility sink and toilet. This location also has backup electric baseboard heat and was well planned with fittings to completely winterize the building if desired.
The home side of the building features a high-security entry from the shop and outside the southwest corner. Heating and cooling GFA (LP) w/AC. The cabin has two bedrooms with Amish-made one-of-a-kind armoires. The walls are beautiful tongue and groove Basswood with rusty tin roofing (salvaged from former onsite homestead barns) for Wainscoting below throughout the living area.
Cabin has one full bathroom with a custom double sink vanity, big boy sized tile shower, glass door and high-end shower system. Also, you will enjoy a very cozy living room with a wood stove and a split wood accent wall that sets off the room. A huge kitchen is complete with new appliances and warm shaker-style cabinetry. You will find perfectly blended earthy tone ship-lap siding used through the bath, hall, living room and kitchen. Last is the amazing ceiling tiles that bring it all together. If all this isn’t enough, the sellers have installed an impressive 8” thick concrete wall and ceiling walk-in vault room with a high-security door with a combination entrance to store your valuables or for protection from bad weather.
The building was strategically located at the highest point on the farm to enhance the panoramic views of the land and the outside patio experience. Take in the sunset while sitting in one of the six patio chairs with a gas fireplace in the center of the table. The patio also has a Weber gas grill, a Green Mountain pellet smoker and an outdoor speaker system to relax and enjoy your slice of rural America. The cabin also has 10’ double sliding patio doors (covered by locked barn doors to conceal when not at the farm) to help hide and keep all your personal items safe.
