Whitetail properties is pleased to present a rare custom built HANDHEWN LOG HOUSE made with second growth Canadian white pine logs. Experience the true feeling of stepping back into the charm of days gone by.
Open concept in its design, and impressive in its construction, this all hand hewn log home boasting massive cabers for the center beams, which are 14” x 10” with 18” x 24” log faces. The joists are 8” x 6”. The floorboards are made with wood from the property harvested by the Amish, and are a medley of Pine, Hemlock, Cherry and Ash alternating in width from 7”, 8” and 10” and fastened with custom made cut nails. The kitchen floor is pine, with a hardwood subfloor is laid at 45 degrees to the joists. There are three antique interior doors custom made from chestnut, and the main doors are detailed with custom made wrought iron hardware crafted by a Dutch Blacksmith. The chimney is central to the home and made with Georgia Brick, and the flue Ohio Superior Clay with a 6” I.D. The metal roof is new, and has 49 degree pitch to easily shed snow but also offers a full height attic that can easily be purposed into two or more additional bedrooms having a 12’ high apex, giving you a total of 6+ bedrooms. This home is a true green experience with no plywood, no poly materials, no glues, etc. fashioned with dowels, windows with wood muntins and all natural materials throughout the home, living here is a fresh breath of being in sync with nature and the joy of experiencing an off grid lifestyle and green footprint.
The building and fields are considerate of keeping the environment and nature in mind. Since 1976 there has never been any pesticides or chemicals applied to the fields or forest or gardens. There are five fields all proximate to the central road, and can be replanted if agriculture is in your plans, or can be left to enjoy the fallow grasses and wildflowers that grow here. There are views from the south pasture that cast for miles, while deer and meadow birds play below. Approximately 52 acres of mixed hardwoods and hemlock grace the creek bottom and are a haven for all creatures great and small. There are some RARE FORMS OF PLANTS in the woods as reported by a field biologist - such as the white form of the pink lady slipper, the pink form of the white baneberry, three types of trillium, Indian pipe and others. There are many interesting animals like salamanders, frogs and crayfish in the two creeks, which note clean water. Both creeks flow to the Genesee River. Besides the extensive wildlife there are many WILD, EDIBLE FOODS here. Raspberries, field strawberries, ramps (wild garlic or leeks), blackberries, apples, gooseberries, may apples, mushrooms, fiddlehead ferns, Jerusalem artichokes and more are all here for the gathering. For several years of this beautiful property the owners maintained a small farm with sheep, goats, chickens and a donkey, and lived the farm life. There is an insulated chicken coupe, a pond, a woodshed, a second shed, and viable fencing remaining in the north east pastures for grazing. Several fields are state certified Organic. There are no gas wells on the property, no windmills or any other easements, you have pristine land and an environment of peace quiet and opportunity to be your best organic steward. This could be a great place to have a business to teach organics, off grid living, or to run as an off grid Air BnB.
