What I Love About The Home
History and charm are written all over this farm. This is a historical Franklin County Farmhouse with 23 acres. There is a large pole barn, updated small barn, and a run-in shed, accompanied by fencing and ready for animals. The outdoor wood stove adds warmth to the home in the winter, along with a brand new heat pump. The wood stove also heats the water to the home, which arrives by a fresh-spring pump system. The greenhouse is ready for a farm business and the barn could be easily refinished into a charming wedding venue. Income opportunities abound with this property. See it today! Ready to sell and move-in.
