Parcel 1: One of the best “Gentlemen’s” farms that you will have the opportunity to buy. Situated off the road overlooking a great pond this private setting couldn’t get any more ideal. A total of 25 acres will be offered with parcel 1 including the home, outbuildings, pond, pasture, and tillable land. Features of the main level of this extensively remodeled farmhouse include a newer kitchen, full bath, laundry room, dining room, living room, sitting room, and my favorite spot the enclosed sunroom overlooking the pond. The upstairs offers 4 bedrooms, a full bath, and access to the floored attic. Attached to the home is a great 2 car garage with living quarters or an efficiency apartment roughed in and ready for your finishing touches. A few of the many updates include vinyl siding, replacement windows, geothermal heat and central air, updated electric, and much more. You will be hard pressed to find a cleaner home with as much care as this one has to offer. The outbuildings on the property include a 40’x80’ machinery shed with water and electric, a corn crib with lean-to, and a large pole building once used as a dairy facility. This building offers good open space with concrete floors, water, and electric. There is still a feed bunk and a few free stalls however this building would easily adapt to beef cattle, horses, equipment storage and a multitude of uses. There are several acres of fenced pasture with the balance of this parcel currently used as tillable cropland.
