This property is SPECIAL! For so many reasons. There's a nostalgic feel when you drive into the yard--the well-kept farmhouse and big hip roof barn take you back in time, but for the last 50 years, this farmstead has been full of life and livestock and abundant memories.
The owners have raised horses, cattle, sheep, and have especially enjoyed their draft horse teams.
There are several grass traps, a small feed yard, lots of windbreak and mature evergreens, and 23.6 acres of alfalfa mix hay ground, which produced 70-1200# bales in 2014.
A dim and overgrown "track" is barely visible in the south pasture, where they used to train their race horses, and one of the pastures that is tucked back in the trees is called the "bobsled pasture"--where the family bundled up and spent their winter get-togethers having fun behind the team of horses.
There is a small shop with an overhead door, concrete floor and wired for a welder. There is also a tractor shed and several small outbuildings.
The hip roof barn has a heated tack room/shed and authentic box stalls in excellent condition. The old manure wagon for cleaning the barn is still mounted on its original track that continues outside the barn to an adjoining pasture, for disposing of the manure.
The hay loft in the barn is sturdy and home to the family's many years of traditional basketball games on Christmas Eve. With no heat in the loft, the heated tack room worked just right for warming up with hot cocoa. If walls could talk! This barn is strong, well maintained, and well-remembered.
The farmhouse is comfortable and functional with many updates, and ready for your personal touch. The main floor consists of a living room, kitchen (beautiful cabinets) and dining room, main bedroom and 3/4 bath. The upper level has two bedrooms and two storage areas. The lower level has a nice sized family room, a furnace room, and a workshop/sewing room.
Between the kitchen and double garage, a spacious and finished area offers a nice entry with lots of closet space, floor space and another 3/4 bathroom.
The attached two car garage is insulated and heated with remote garage door openers.
Gas forced air heats the home and rural water arrived this past year.
The maintenance free deck is on the south side of the house with an electric awning.
