Hidden from the road and nestled at the end of a winding, private driveway lies a custom-built home on 15 beautifully wooded acres waiting for new owners.  Located just five minutes from Enterprise and ten minutes from the Fort Novosel gate, the Hollis Homestead is a genuine treasure and a rare find in this area.  The spacious 3BR/3BA, two-story home was solidly built in 1985 using a combination of poplar, western cedar, and heart pine and remains in excellent condition today.  The land features a beautiful variety of mature hardwoods and pines and a natural spring providing year-round water for the wildlife.  A carport and a barn with horse stables and additional enclosed storage provide ample room for your animals, vehicles, and equipment.  Located just outside the city limits, Hollis Homestead allows you all the freedoms of country life with very easy access to Enterprise.     

You must see the home to appreciate all the features it offers.  With cedar siding and a metal roof, the home was built to last.  The 3,131 heated and cooled square feet include a nicely designed kitchen with custom cabinets and granite countertops along with an oversized breakfast bar providing additional space for serving and sitting.  The comfortable den has a large wood burning fireplace for those cool fall evenings and cold winter days.  The den flows into a spacious sunroom which provides access to an oversized, split-level deck where you can enjoy the scenery and watch the wildlife.  The large master bedroom and bath are on the main level allowing for some privacy from the kitchen, den, and the two upstairs bedrooms.  A second bathroom is conveniently placed on the main level and the third bathroom is between the upstairs bedrooms.  Other features include a nice pantry, extra-large laundry/mud room, and plenty of interior storage.  Tongue and groove ceilings and floors help create that “mountain cabin” feel.  A testament to the quality of construction, the home is built on a crawlspace but with the feel of a concrete foundation. 

The home and the land perfectly complement each other to produce that “in the country” feel.  Except for some open fields in the front, the 15 acres are fully wooded and loaded with large, mature hardwoods and pines.  The open fields were previously fenced for the owner’s horses.  You can expect to see deer and other native wildlife roaming through the woods, just imagine that view from the deck!  There is a pond site that is fed by a natural spring that flows constantly, even during the recent drought.  The pond was maintained and stocked with fish in the past, but the dam will need repairs to make it functional again. 

Other notes:  The multi-purpose barn provides plenty of room to store all your equipment and includes four horse stalls.  A deep well provides fresh water for the home while two HVAC systems allow for controlling the main level and the upstairs separately.  The stove and supplemental heaters use propane.  An unfinished bonus room above the carport provides additional storage.  The property has a recent survey.  It does not have road frontage but has legal access via a deeded easement from County Road 157.  When you turn into the drive from CR 157 you will pass four old poultry houses that are out of production and are used strictly for hay and equipment storage. 

The Hollis Homestead is a one-of-a-kind property in an excellent location.  Don’t miss this opportunity - schedule your showing today!
