The natural sights on the property will amaze you. First, the waterfalls on White Store Creek, then the ponds and lastly the view across the fields. The land is about a mix between woods and farmland and they currently lease the farmland to a local dairy farmer for hay production. The woods have been selectively cut over the years and appear to be well-managed making it excellent habitat for deer and turkey. The owner is downsizing after owning and enjoying the property for over 20 years. This truly is a one-of-kind property ready for someone else to use and enjoy as a family farm, country get-away or perhaps a corporate retreat. Additional acreage is available. Please call for details.
