    Description

    This is your HOMESTEAD. Every minor detail has been seen to, all of which make this the easiest place to raise a family and livestock that you'll find in Clarke County and beyond. Rare offering featuring 121 fenced acres comprised of 4 pastures, a gorgeous log & stone home, and outbuildings including a 50' x 100' BARN / SHOP, perfect for maintaining equipment or conversion for animals, cattle barns, feed barn, and a great building that once housed a nice flock of chickens. Ideally designed for livestock husbandry with 4 wells, strategically located automatic watering, including a solar powered well and custom stainless trough. High yield, weed free hay production with over 100 acres of tillable land, cow and calf chutes and robust fencing around all pastures, plus a convenient woodlot offering shade in the summer. Underground electric to the Revolutionary war era stone fences built with native limestone quarried right here on the farm. Underground drainage around outbuilding keeps mud to a minimum when the abundant rain comes. Located on a well maintained paved county maintained road with easy access to highways and I-81. The incredible stone craftsmanship is also evident on the amazing 3 or 4 bedroom home. This home has been meticulously cared for over the years and includes many special touches including reclaimed tobacco barnwood paneling, hand peeled log handrails, custom built wood burning furnace, custom lighting, hardwood floors and exposed log beams, just to name a few of the special features that set this gem apart from any other farm you'll see. Preparations have been made for any emergency. Including installation of a redundant well and rainwater cistern. Wind and solar powered wells, plus 18 inch walls provide security and incredibly stable temperatures inside this fortress of a home. The home also has a main floor master bedroom with large walk-in closet and luxury 5 piece bath, with a great little nursery or office right off the master bedroom. A main floor laundry makes the daily chore much less of one, and laundry hook ups in the basement are a great option for larger jobs. The upper level loft overlooks the main floor living room and has incredible view of the "back 80" and beyond, walk down the hall and you'll find a cozy reading nook and the fantastic full bath including a separate shower and custom vanity. Continue down the hall to the enormous bedroom (could easily be converted to 2) with two walk-in closets. The immaculate condition of this home mirrors the perfection of the farm and no detail has been overlooked. Even the 3 car garage is uniquely designed and convenient. A huge canning storage area comes in handy when it's time to harvest your crop from the raised bed gardens. Don't forget to ask about the incredible tax breaks available when purchasing this once in a lifetime opportunity.
