The 1,665 sq ft, 3BR/2BA farmhouse was built in 1979. The bedrooms surround the kitchen and living space creating a warm and inviting feeling without being too large. There is a brick fireplace that was converted to gas but could be restored to original use. The utility room also serves as a mudroom and it has a good-sized screened in back porch for late afternoon or early morning sitting. A covered carport leads to an enclosed storage area. A large metal barn behind the house provides ample room for all your outside equipment and has a chain link front fence that can be locked for security. Several other barns and sheds provide covered storage for tractors, boats, etc.
The ponds are fed from natural springs, so they maintain constant levels with fresh, cool water, even during the dry periods. Stocked with bream and largemouth bass, you can expect to catch fish year-round at the farm. The hay fields produce excellent hay and are partially fenced. They could easily be converted back to improved pasture if you are thinking about raising some livestock. This property provides many options for the new owners. You could work the farm yourself or continue to lease it to a local farmer for hay and crop production. If you want to raise domestic or exotic livestock, fence some or all the hayfields and turn them loose.
