Property Description

This stunning home tucked away on 17 +/- acres is the perfect homestead for a growing family. Pride of ownership shines on this 5 bedroom, 3 bath house that was built in 1980. This vast house is accompanied by two finished shops with air conditioning and heat for even more room and work space. As you pull in, you’ll notice the nicely graveled driveway, stoned front side of the house, and blooming perennial plants.

The house is 3,856 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and an attached two-car garage. Sliding doors to the back deck overlook the kids' play area and timbered oasis. Step out on the deck with your morning coffee and watch all of the wildlife from hummingbirds to deer right in your backyard. During the day the kids will have plenty of activities to keep them busy and active from the playhouse and zip line in the backyard to fishing in the pond. Once evening hits, you’ll be watching the sun set from the back deck while the deer come up to feed.

Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, along with oversized storage, pantry, and laundry room. The downstairs features 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath, along with a fireplace and game area.

It might only be 17 acres, but it is absolutely the perfect 17 acres with abundant wildlife and big buck history. There is even a natural spring flowing throughout the property and the owners built a wooden bench overlooking it to soak up its serenity. Mowed walking and UTV trails throughout the beautiful hardwood timber make access a breeze. The front of the house overlooks a small pond that could be expanded.

Let’s not forget about the two shops! The original shop, built in 1980, is 40'x30' with an attached 40'x21' lean-to and boasts three-10' garage doors! It has central heating and an A/C window unit, and it even has built-in chicken coops inside of the lean-to area.
The second shop, built in 2004, is also 40'x30' and has an attached 40'x10' lean-to for outside storage. This shop has central heating and air with a concrete floor. It even has a trap door facing the open field and timber, so you can deer hunt out of it. Both of the deer mounted in the house were taken out of the shop, scoring 175” and 160”

The property sits just 1 mile from the Yates Center Reservoir where there are 212 acres of surface water with 500 acres of land surrounding it. This reservoir is definitely a hidden gem with substantial fishing and boating opportunities.
