How about living in the woods and walking out of the walk out basement to your treestand on October 1st? I almost didn't pound the for sale sign in the ground at the end of the driveway, as I was ready to make an offer on this place myself. This 2,000+ square foot log home sitting on 48 acres, is a sportsmen and homesteader's dream. It currently is a 2 bedroom and 2 full bath residence. The full walk out basement is ready for a family room, a couple more bedrooms, and is plumbed for another bathroom. The master bedroom and bathroom are huge and have great views of the wooded yard and surrounding woods. The open great room has a lot of windows facing the south, which will help with heating the home during the winter, and the shade trees all around the home keep the sun at bay during the summer. The open floor plan allows you to see the front yard, side yard and back yard all from the kitchen. There is a 2 car attached garage, which you don't see that often on log homes. The long driveway is lined with limestone to keep your vehicles out of the mud during the muddy times of the year. In 2011 the roof was re shingled and in 2013 the water softener was replaced
The open loop geothermal heating and cooling system will keep your heating and cooling bills very low compared to conventional propane or natural gas heating. Hot and cold water are run into the garage to help clean your toys after a day at Sleepy Hollow State Park, which is only a few miles away. A 30 by 40 polebarn will help store those toys. The 48 acres consists of approx. 23 acres that are enrolled in the Wetlands Reserve Enhancement Program and the other approx. 25 acres do not fall under any government program. The WREP acres are protected wetlands and have been enhanced by a private contractor. Those acres are the back half of the property, or the east half. These acres have been restored to pre settlement conditions, which means they had many, many shallow water ponds excavated and thousands of wetland conducive trees and shrubs planted. You can see the shallow ponds on the aerial. The unrestored acres are ready for you to plant food plots, grow a large garden, rent out for agricultural production, raise horses, pigs, cows, etc.
The deer hunting is very good in this area and the property sits about in the middle of the East Olive Quality Deer Management Cooperative. Which means, many neighboring landowners have joined together to help manage the deer herd for quality and proper quantity.
This home is just a few minutes from St. Johns, Dewitt, and Lansing and literally 2 miles from the entrance ramp to US127 at Price Rd., making a quick commute if you work in one of the neighboring towns.
