Land Description:105 acres, bounded , a private owner on the N and E and DNR lands on the S and W. 30 acres of pasture and garden, 70 acres of mature alder forest transitioning to mixed forest. Elevation 160‘ to 850’ mountain top. It was logged in 1984 and allowed to re-forest naturally, making it excellent wildlife habitat. We heat and cook with our wood, and we use our portable sawmill to mill boards for building and crafting. We practice sustainable forestry.
We have two year-round springs, one with gravity feed to the house and barn, the other fills the duck pond and powers the hydroelectric system that electrifies the fences. Two ponds, and one creek which runs along the lower pasture. Solar panels on the barn power a freezer and more fencing. There is public water and electricity available. Our electric bill averages $60/month year round.
The house is a 1975 stick built ranch style, 2 bd, 2 bath, nice living room with fireplace, kitchen, and pantry/laundry. Three steps down to an attached 2-car garage, now converted to my dream kitchen with a huge amish wood stove, and restaurant sink. Sliding doors open to a covered area for outdoor dining/gathering. Bright outdoor covered work area with stainless table and sink, etc.
Internet 5+Mbps. T-Mobile is the only cell service available here.
Large (30 x 60’) barn with loft and cement floor, with shed roofs added to two sides for more storage and goat barn/hay storage.
Two crafty tiny private houses, 2 composting toilets, a smaller goat barn, chicken coop, double pig farrowing quonset with wood stove to warm the floor. (Could become a bunkhouse.) Wood-fired sauna and hot tub, and large root cellar/cheese cave. Mature productive orchard.
Fenced, well maintained, and lovingly developed. We’d really love to stay here forever, but we’re getting too old (in our 70s) to work the place. Buy it outright for seven figures, or create a suitable overlap with us living here, too, and sharing knowledge for a much better deal.
