From the Zillow listing:


Imagine the endless possibilities with this rustic, farmhouse style home. Known in the community as the “Old Jollay Homeplace” (according to seller) you can truly feel the history of this property. The home is nestled on 12.8 +/- acres of beautiful property that contains many mature trees, a large pond, and plenty of areas that would be ideal for farming. You will notice the cabin feel that the home offers. The inside is cozy with lots of wood finishes, yet it still feels very spacious. There is a very large sun room that allows for tons of natural light and also has a built in cooker. The exterior room at the back of the home was previously used as a place to teach craft classes, but would be an ideal place for a workshop or for additional storage. Near the back of the house you will find a barn and a storage shed, perfect for those who need space to store farming equipment. Come take a look around and explore all of the opportunities this property has to offer.
