The pipeliner and I had a nice 2 day get-away at the farm. It gets harder and harder to leave after the weekend is over.
The ride from our house to the farm is about 25 miles. We usually try to take a different route each time, you know check out the scenery.
But we usually end up driving by this piece of property that really isn't far from the farmhouse. It had a for sale sign on the fence for awhile, then it disappeared.
The pipeliner decided to do some checking on it recently. It was still for sale and the price has been reduced.
This weekend we decided to meet our realtor there. Have a little look -see.
The listing brochure describes it as 8.2 acres bordered by a creek and trees.
Many fruit trees to entice deer and other wildlife.
There is an old mobile home and garage positioned in the center of the land.
That was all fine until we walked up and looked in the windows.
This is just the front porch!
The rest of the trailer is full of furniture and other things!
( probably lots of wildlife!)
The garage was cluttered with old lawn tractors.
Our realtor kept saying "oh my goodness!"
The place has been vacant for quite awhile.
One thing they forgot to add in the listing was the in ground swimming pool.
The property is beautiful!
It has a lot of potential.
But now we know why the piece of land has been on the market for so long.
It needs a lot of work!
We have some thinking and phones calls to make before we make a decision if this is a project we would like to take on.
And what a project it would be!
