This farm has been our dream come true for 13 years, but now we are moving into full-time ministry and must sell.

P4080364 Our house resized

Our home is located on 3 acres. It is ideal for having a few chickens, a horse or two, lots of pets, a big garden, and plenty of privacy and room to roam. Located within easy commuting distance of Jackson, it is like coming home to your own private retreat every day. The modified A-frame design, back deck, and large stone fireplace bring to mind images of mountain get-aways. The house is surrounded by woods and a meadow. The great neighbors are close enough to walk to but just far enough away that you really get all the peace and quiet you crave after a busy day.

Though the house was built in 1977, a complete remodel two years ago means that all the appliances, central air, carpet, wood laminate flooring, etc. are in very good condition.

The house is very spacious with lots of room for entertaining and family get-togethers. Fifteen of us eat Thanksgiving lunch in the dining area every year. Tile in the bathrooms, stained concrete in the living room and dining/kitchen area , and laminate flooring in the downstairs bedrooms makes for easy clean-up. Good quality carpeting upstairs helps insulate sound.

The roomy kitchen is ideal for those who love to cook. It offers spacious counter tops, two year old stainless steel appliances, extensive custom-made cabinetry, deep sinks, and an attached eating area where big projects can easily overflow to the dining room table and still be conveniently located by the sink and kitchen work areas.

Because of the layout, with one downstairs bedroom having its own separate entrance as well as a bathroom, there is flexibility to use two of the rooms as a mother-in-law suite or a home office. The upstairs, with three bedrooms and a full bath, as well as a door to a balcony, could easily be renovated into an adult child's apartment.

The house has plenty of storage space including two walk-in attic spaces, lots of closets, wall-mounted shelving in the laundry area, and a good-sized mudroom. A barn and tractor-shed offer outside storage and work space. The barn includes stalls and a tack room. The tractor shed has a spacious work area, locking storage room, and plenty of space for parking tractors or other vehicles. Both buildings are wired for electricity.

There are also grapevines, a few young fruit trees and blueberry bushes, as well as wild blackberries great for picking and eating.

Whether you're older and want a place to enjoy now that you've got more time on your hands or a family looking for plenty of space in a great school district, If you've been dreaming of a hobby farm at a great price, then we'd love to show our lovely home to you.
