Nestled on fourteen acres of serene landscape lies an incredible opportunity for both residential, commerical, and farm pursuits. A striking concrete driveway sets the stage, guiding you to a charming Amish-crafted brick ranch home. Its inviting covered front porch leads into a spacious foyer adorned with a soaring cathedral ceiling. A welcoming living room, enhanced by a comforting coal-burning stove, promises cozy winter evenings. Meanwhile, the kitchen's heated terrazzo tile floor beckons early risers with its warmth on chilly mornings. Custom oak cabinets grace the kitchen alongside modern amenities like a double wall oven, gas cooktop, and a convenient walk-in pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen, a formal dining room and a generously sized flex room offer versatility, with the latter easily adaptable as a fourth bedroom. The primary suite boasts a spacious walk-in closet and a lavish bathroom featuring a rejuvenating whirlpool tub, double vanity, and a stunning custom-tiled shower. Two additional ample bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a home office, and a laundry room round out the expansive main level. Below, an expansive unfinished basement with a half bath presents a canvas for potential expansion, whether for additional bedrooms, a home gym, or a workshop. Stepping outdoors reveals a composite deck leading in-ground pool, encircled by a sprawling concrete patio. A newly installed well in 2021 ensures reliable water supply, while recent HVAC upgrades (2020 for the main house, 2022 for the master suite) offer enhanced comfort year-round. Now, for the OUTBUILDINGS: First, a breezeway connects the home to 2000 SF pole barn with three oversized garage doors with a heated concrete floor, a workshop, AND partially finished second level! The second pole barn is a 5000 SF commerical grade building currently leased to a contractor (continuing that lease is negotiable) with three oversized garage doors: one 22x14 door and two 14x12 doors, an office, and expansive conrete parking. The possibilities are endless: business, boat/plane/RV storage, indoor sports training, etc. For equestrian enthusiasts or animal lovers, the property features a spacious pasture and pond enclosed by an electric fence, with mulitple run-in sheds and converted chicken coop providing shelter. Whether pursuing hobbies, farming, running a business, or caring for animals, this property offers boundless opportunities- it must be toured to truly appreciate. Now scheduling private tours.
