80 Acres of gently rolling hills with fenced pastures and wooded areas, a wildlife pond and many apple trees - previously an Alpaca ranch. You can be self-sufficient on this gorgeous property. This amazing historic property has 2 homes, (2 separate new wells). The photos really do not do justice to this beautiful homestead. One home was a log school house from the 1800s, which is now in the center of the home, preserved, renovated, and updated in the middle area of this cozy 3 BR home. The amazing log walls have been exposed and there is a large family room and full basement that was added in 2005 with in-floor heat that is gas with the option of using the outdoor wood stove for heat. 5 zones/thermostats for heating. Indoor swim spa (8x8x52) added in 2013, also with in-floor heat under the pool and in the room surrounding the pool (this could be changed to 4th main floor bedroom). Efficient fireplace in family room. Two skylights. New roof, updated electric and plumbing. There is a second house on the property, built in 2009 with handicap accessibility, 2 BR, 2 B, in-floor geothermal heat and air, 5 skylights, 2 car attached garage with separate thermostat, large deck and gazebo that overlook the pastures. 2 Barns includes large barn from 1930s, actively used and kept up with newer roof. Infrastructure is strong and has two floors, electricity and heater in workshop. Second barn was built in 2008 and has skylighting, cement floor in middle (with tubing for in-floor heat), electric and water. Each end of the barn has a 10' overhead door and paddocks for animals. Side doors are dutch doors. 5 Pastures are fenced for rotating animals (currently sheep). We have maintained this as an organic farm, as much as possible with no pesticides or herbicides. A wildlife pond is on the property and hunting is good in the area with pheasants, turkeys, deer, and bear. There are maples on the land (maple syrup). A Gift Shop is on the property and hummed with activity during holiday seasons. The gift shop is finished nicely with wood paneled ceiling and has heat, electricity and ceiling fan (could also be man-cave or she-shed). This is an exceptional property and there is much timber on the land and many apple trees. We are leaving to move closer to our children, who have all settled in the lower midwest. You will LOVE this homestead. The second home could be for an older member(s) of the family or to rent as additional income (it is currently rented to long-term renters that are excellent). As we have moved from the property, we currently have both homes rented, the newer barn and pastures are rented, the gift shop is rented and the back 40 for hunting. This is a good income opportunity as the monthly rental income currently is $1700. Appointment is necessary. Awesome community with great neighbors. Close neighbor, a few 40s over, raises grass-fed beef, cage-free chickens, berries and honey. Perfect.
US 41 through Carney MI, from the south, turn right on Lickman Road (1/4 mile south of the blinking light in town). That is our road. Go 1.5 miles and the houses are on the right. Please make an appointment prior to visiting. The property goes to the corner of K-1 and south on K-1 to the curve is the first 40 acres. The second 40 acres runs to the south of the first 40.
