This will be the home of your heart, where there are still stars in the sky and the birds still chirp! Ten plus acres of nature at it's finest. One and a half stocked ponds with aerators, an island and a beach with a firepit and gazebo (gazebo screens are in the barn), a playhouse and playground! An open grassy area large enough to resurrect a tent for a family reunion or a permanent building. Stroll along a walking path through more than 30 species of wildflowers, that bloom according to season, or sit for a spell on the island under the old oak tree. A fenced field for cattle, and a basement under the 36' x 40' x 24' barn with a chicken coup, and 40 Solar panels that pays for your electricity for almost the whole year. The big barn is currently housing a full working wood shop and spraying booth (the seller will entertain an offer for the equipment) and houses a half bath and two dressing rooms, plus storage. Inside the home, you have solid hardwood flooring on most of the main level, central vacuum system, a huge dining and sitting area off the kitchen, and what a kitchen it is, with maple butcher block counters and table. An oversized living room with a gas log fireplace and built in shelving, plus a sunroom with a built in entertainment center, its own wall heater/AC unit and a bird feeder large enough to hold food for Cardinals, Blue Jays, Red Breasted Woodpeckers, Gold Finch and Blue Birds. On the main level there is an office built out for electronic equipment and shelving, a full bath and a half bath. The mud room and main level laundry are just inside the garage that has a laundry chute from the second floor, along with a half bath and lots of storage. The garage has an electric cooktop for canning, a built in dog house, dog food center and a dog bowl with it own spigot! Two thirds of the basement is an apartment with outside entrance and its own deck. Washer/Dryer belong to the tenants and will not remain. This amazing property has 200 amp service and a whole house surge protector, gas tankless water heater and fiber optics. Lets talk about history...the huge 36' x 40' x 24' barn was originally part of the Elkhart County Fairgrounds, was dismantled and rebuilt on this property. The yard lights are from Downtown Goshen and the flooring in the house was the original Goshen High School gym floor.
