Pope County - Rustic charm describes this 136 acre farm nestled on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest, and it's located
in the heart of “Horse Country” being only 4 miles or so from the ever popular 9 Day Trail Ride. This is an income producing
farm with several years of successfully yielded crops, and has approximately 100 tillable acres of rolling farm land. The spacious
3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home sits down a lane, and a stone walkway lined with hostas, monkey grass, sedum, azaleas, crepe myrtles, lilies
and rose bushes leads to a covered front porch that is as long as the whole house!
A lovely wood-burning fireplace warms the middle of the living room, and an office/family room leads to the master bedroom complete with an
adjoining master bath which has its own jet tub and skylight. On the other side of the living room, a hallway leads to a full bathroom and
2 more bedrooms. The kitchen has 2 skylights and leads to a dining room off the side. The home has ceiling fans throughout, central heat
and air, and a convenient ½ bath next to the laundry room.
A 2 car attached garage brings you into the back of the home which has an added-on sunroom, and an attached deck complete with a landing
that overlooks the back of the property. Hydrangeas, lilac bushes, hibiscus, and hummingbird vine complete the landscaping. Trees line the edges
of the fields so get ready to hunt turkey and deer!
No farm would be complete without 3 ponds in which one could stock and fish from, Little Lusk Creek which runs through the property, and a barn which
sits across the road and is presently home to 3 horses and one spoiled donkey.
