It boasts 331 acres of incredible views, a professionally remodeled main house and a private, 14-acre spring-fed bass-filled lake with its own historic guest house overlooking a manicured lawn leading to a cantilevered dock, kayaks and paddleboats. 180 acres are fully cultivated ground; the remaining 150 are wooded with streams, hiking and horse trails throughout.
