Hobby Farm, 2 Houses, 2.8 Acres, $100,000 Minimum!!

More Information

Wow! $100,000 starting bid for this Hobby Farm on 2.8 Acres in Muskingum Co. with 2 Houses and 2 Barns. Online Bidding Only. 

Farmhouse (5 bedrooms 2 baths) built in 1890. European boiler system, wood heat supplement, newer electric service, freeze-proof bathroom pipes, generator backup and much more. Come in and do your Martha Stewart makeover to suit your tastes. This house has a rich history preserved in the original woodwork and floors, most harvested from this farm by the Wise family in 1890. The doors of the upstairs bedrooms come from the original summer kitchen. Wood heat in the farm house keeps the utilities low.

Second house (3 bedroom 3 baths) looks like the carriage house but was new in 2004 with historic looking features and shaker cabinets, is handicap accessible with ravine view, one car garage and sitting balcony. There is also a large efficiency apartment upstairs, each living space with separate entrances if you wish. Large walkout two-car basement garage (32'x40') with wine cellar is bonus. Lifetime roof on both houses. Entire property has greenhouse, 2 house generator, chicken house, and fenced animal area, two century pegged barns.

Issues: The Farm House is older and has some plumbing issues from frozen pipes. The water lines from the furnace to the radiators should be replaced and there is a broken water line to the downstairs bathroom.
