Rural Homestead With Stocked Pond In North West Indiana
PRICE REDUCED! Offered for sale is an amazing rural homestead that offers everything a home “out in the country” should. It features a huge 6 bedroom 3-1/2 bath home, 2 car attached garage, a newer 45’ X 64’ fully finished toy barn with office/man or woman cave build out, a huge 54’ X 80’ equipment shed and a classic farm silo. The home is a nice mix of modern comfort and convenience with classic country styling. Most of the main floor has been updated over the years to include a large family room with gas fireplace, huge master bedroom and bath, a home office, efficient kitchen with island, stainless steel appliances and a second in wall oven for big family parties or the baking enthusiast. There is an off-kitchen dining area, a large enclosed wrap around porch used as a game area and a separate laundry/mud room. A feature you may really appreciate is the handicapped accessible guest/related living quarters with a huge ceramic tile shower and bathroom. To add to the convenience of this space, there is a separate entrance to it from outside the house. In addition to the third main floor bedroom, there are three bedrooms upstairs. The walk up and those bedrooms are where the history of the farmhouse really shows with the original wood railings, woodwork and doors all finished in white paint. Upstairs is where some of the homes efficiency improvements can really be seen or more like “felt”. You’ll notice how comfortable these upstairs spaces are due to numerous home improvements. The newer replacement windows, upgrades to the homes insulation, roofing materials, heating, and cooling system, as well as a professionally conducted energy savings audit, are just a sample of what the longtime owners invested in improving the home. Couple this with high efficient, wrapped water heaters, newer well and well mechanicals, a water softener, whole house water filter, electrical system upgrades, AND an automatic whole house generator, you have safety, comfort, efficiency and lower utility bills!
The rest of the property shows the same thoughtfulness and planning as the home does. Just one of the many outdoor features is the one acre stocked pond. It was just dug a few years ago but has had several stockings of bass, bluegill, and catfish. The banks are clean, and the pond is virtually weed free for swimming, fishing or just enjoying the view. The owner had added some man-made structure to the pond to improve the fish habitat and is leaving a non-motorized pontoon boat on the pond for use as a floating dock and shading. Around the pond and property, you see all the other conservations work the owners have done to make the property a wildlife paradise and sanctuary. There have been literally dozens (if not hundreds) of tree and other plantings added to some of the open, grass, brush and wooded areas to further enhance the property and attract wildlife. Apples, oaks, many varieties of pines, spruces, grapes, and blueberries are just some of the plantings. Signs of these conservation efforts are easily witnessed with all the signs of deer, turkey, rabbits, songbirds and other game and non-game animals using the property. One of the coolest inhabitants of the property is the resident family of Bald Eagles that can regularly be seen near the pond or soaring above.
As you sit on the massive backyard deck or walk around the house and barns you will enjoy all the details in the natural plantings and flowers beds and well as the several magnificent oaks and maples providing shade to the back of the house and yard. Enjoying the rest of the property is easy to do either on foot, ATV or horseback via one of the many mowed trails meandering through the woods and fields. The owners aren’t hunters but even a novice hunter could have success with all the deer and turkey sign on the property. The property also has a bermed area used as a private shooting range. There are also several state-owned Fish and Game areas nearby for additional recreational opportunities. Come see why this property will give you the opportunity to have that country retreat, hobby farm, recreational or horse property you always dreamed of.
