Additional Property Details
South Buck Creek enters the parcel and flows over 1500 feet before it empties into Hawkins Creek. 1300 +/- feet of Hawkins Creek, a DNR rated class 2 trout stream, continues past pine forest, exposed rock bluffs, hidden pockets and shallow caves. Approximately 14 +/- acres of grass pasture is surrounded by high tinsel smooth wire fencing which is ideal for horses. The lower end of this area is natural high grasses and wetland which various songbirds and waterfowl call home. A bald eagle’s nest is ¼ mile away so they are frequent visitors to the area. The high ground is a 20 +/- acre mix of hardwoods and mature evergreens which is also fenced and offers a couple great hunting stands.
The asphalt gravel driveway winds through the pasture and past a couple 3 sided sheds as well as a 16’ x 44’ +/- western style hay barn near a paddock. The drive continues up to a plateau overlooking the valley where you will find the home and outbuildings.

A loft area in part of the shed offers more square footage of storage. A 30 x 30+/- garage is near to the house. This building is insulated and heated by an outdoor wood furnace so it would make an idea wood shop, metal shop or heated vehicle storage.
