This is a great place with an awesome setting, but it will not qualify for VA, FHA, MSHDA or and special financing other than conventional or cash due to it's unique nature and also please note that until the snow is gone there is nearly a half mile walk through snow to see the house. This amazing property is beautifully set on 40 acres among beautiful rolling hills loaded with towering Maples with a private working farm tucked away in a pleasant valley where the only sounds you hear are the birds, wildlife, the breeze and the fresh waters flowing from the West Branch of the Chocolay River. The spacious log handcrafted home has a rustic appeal with an artistic flare and has served a large family well for years. There could be as many as 7 bedrooms depending how rooms are used. One large room was designed as a class room and a library for teaching at home. There is a loft, three bathrooms, lots of storage and the master bedroom has a bathroom, walk in closets and also a bright reading room or craft/hobby room. The open kitchen and dining room is a wonderful area for gathering and will make an excellent space with plenty of room for canning, harvesting, cooking and enjoying natures bounty. It is brightly lit with some new windows and a bright and cheerful sunroom which could be used as an office and is a perfect place to start seeds for spring planting. You will love the huge wrap around covered deck, perfect for quiet evenings listing to the river, enjoying the peace, entertaining friends or relaxing with a good book. An outdoor boiler provides economical heat. An awesome wood fired sauna solidly built of huge logs sits right next to the clean banks of the river where the cool waters are so clear you can see the fish dancing and darting in the current. The sandy bottom would make this a fun swimming hole to cool off in after a nice sauna. There is a barn with a fenced in corral and several out buildings. The hills provide excellent gravity feed for gathering acres upon acres of maple sap for producing syrup. You will find much of the tubing is already in place. There are chickens and other animals currently being raised on the farm. This would be an absolutely gorgeous property for horse riding with endless trails in the area. There is so much to enjoy here that it should be seen in person to get the feel for it all. Get that "off the grid" ambiance while still having the convenience of Board of Light and Power electricity. Grow your own fresh organic crops and raise animals knowing their history. Be away from all the hustle and bustle of people and still be less than 30 minutes from town. Also this property could make a tremendous hunting lodge, family camp or could be shared by your own community. Best of all when you are here nature abounds and the lifestyle you are dreaming of is all around you.
