The 1920's vintage home was built with quality pine; floors, ceilings and walls. The roof is metal and the pier and beam foundation seems very sturdy. This house is waiting to be reduced back to a time that is past but preserved in this sturdy structure. It is quite large for the period of time it was built with 3 large bedrooms and 2 baths; all the public areas are large as are the bedrooms. The kitchen harks back to another era when large families ate together at each meal. Typical of the period is a very large attic space used for storage, canned goods, and storage for all those kraut and pickle crocks. Yes, the access is by a staircase that is straight up and the dormer window for bright light are in place so that woolen and quilts could be stored with no moths.
The immediate home is surrounded by the necessary outbuilding to make this once working homestead function. There are vintage barns for hay storage, cattle working, and equipment storage and repair. A place to build entertaining venues for the so inclined or to function in 2015 for the same purpose they were built, A self sustaining lifestyle.
For romance the old hand dug well survives with the windmill and cistern intact. For practicality,a domestic well was dug that has a submersible pump. This is a rare property, a clear and pure reflection of a time past, to become available to the market. This is one of the last of these places.
