A gravel driveway leads past peaceful open pastures and wooded acres to the main house, barn, and workshop garage.

The living room opening has a large archway leading into a cozy room with lots of natural light and a built-in bench seat.

The owner's private bath features a walk-in stall steam shower, a jetted tub, and dual vanities. It also comes with a convenient urinal as well. A set of doors from the owner's suite go into a screened-in porch that overlooks the patio and farmland views. A staircase off the kitchen leads up to an office area, a bedroom, and a full bath.

The surrounding landscape is incredible with wooded areas, open pastures, and tillable acreage--the possibilities are endless. Wildlife such as white tail deer, fox, and turkey are a common sight. An added bonus is that the surrounding farms are not going to be developed.
