REAL ESTATE:  Definitely one of the premier western Holmes County farms to be offered at public auction in recent history.  Accessed from a long, well stoned driveway, the setting is surreal, the improvements are impeccable, the land is productive and in a high state of cultivation.  Here are a few of the highlights -  4300 + Sq. Ft. custom built home by builder Carl Finley in 2008.  A stunning spacious kitchen with a large island highlights the first floor.  The kitchen is open to the living/family room w/fireplace and a sunroom that opens to a stamped concrete patio. As you walk in the front door to the entry foyer, the formal dining room is on the left and an office to the right.  Oak hardwood flooring accents all of these areas. Other first floor amenities include the master suite, large laundry, 2 ½ baths, pantry, and attached oversized heated two-car garage.  At the top of the staircase you’ll find a sitting or bonus room plus a bedroom with full bath and 2 Bedrooms that share a Jack/Jill Bath.  Lots of windows provide natural light. The home has a full, unfinished walkout basement.  The house is heated by a zoned hot water heating system and enjoys free gas from a storage well on the farm and has central air as well.  The outbuildings include a renovated bank barn with a lean-to and cattle shed added in ’07, a hoop barn added in ’08 and a pole constructed machinery shed with heated shop/garage bay.  All the pastures are fenced with Hi-Tensile fencing and each lot has a Mirafount waterer.  This farm sells in its entirety.
