The beautiful, custom home was built in 1991, and is approximately 3296 square feet. There are 3 levels (5 bedrooms/ 2 full baths, 2 half baths); a basement, main floor, and upstairs.
Main Level: The main level has wood floors in most areas, with master bedroom being carpeted. The master bedroom suite is large and has a nice private bathroom with a twin vanity, tub and separate shower. The living room is spacious and offers a stacked stone, gas burning fireplace. The kitchen and dining room offer views of the pretty pastoral setting. The kitchen is spacious with a large island in the center with room for dining. The counter tops are all granite, tile backsplash, and ample wood cabinets for storage. The refrigerator and dishwasher are stainless, and the oven, microwave, and Jenn-Air stove are included. The laundry room lies off the kitchen to the north. There is a half bath on this level as well.
Basement: The basement is very roomy, and has an open area for entertaining, sewing area, or man cave, a kitchenette, two bedrooms, 1/2 bath, and a storm shelter area. There is a hot water heater and HVAC unit downstairs, and the central vacuum unit for the home is also located downstairs. You are able to walk out from the downstairs to the patio area without coming through the main level of the home, if more privacy was desired.
Upstairs: The upstairs of the home is large, and offers a huge amount of storage. There are two bedrooms, each with a Jack and Jill vanity and shared bathroom. A large playroom is upstairs for keeping any little ones entertained. There are two large storage areas upstairs in addition to the other rooms. The upstairs is carpeted.
Porch and Patio: The view from the back porch is stunning. It faces west, and the owners say the sunsets are spectacular. Half of the back porch is screened and would make a beautiful place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, or the open air area is nice for grilling and entertaining. The large patio area is finished in gorgeous stonework. There is a small water feature surrounded by flowering shrubs, and the setting is perfect for hosting parties or large get togethers. There is a two car garage that leads into the main level of the home.
Shop: Up the hill from the home is a large hobby shop (approximately 1200 square feet), with an expansive open room upstairs. If you love to do wood working on tinker with crafts this would be an ideal space. Below the main shop space is a garage area with 3 bays, and a small room that could be finished as an apartment or office. This building has a lot of potential or could make even more storage.
Land and Lake: The property consists mainly of open pastureland that is fenced and cross-fenced for cattle or horses. I would estimate that there is approximately 10 acres or less of wooded area on the entire property. In the center of the land lies a beautiful, trophy fishing lake. The lake is currently approximately 8.5 to 9 acres in size, and provides water for the livestock and great fishing opportunities for large mouth bass. A pier leads you out into the lake and provides a place to fish or enjoy your surroundings. Just above the lake is a quaint, one room cabin that gives the rustic feeling you want as you sit along the water’s edge.
Barns: There are two barns for storing equipment, hay, and working the cows. The largest barn has a catch pen and a squeeze shoot for loading up your cattle. The barn used for storing the equipment is approximately 100' x 50', and is ample space for the two tractors, implements, and other items you will need on the farm. Please see the Equipment List in the attachment section below to see what tractors and equipment are included with the sale.
Taxes: At this price the owner is also including approximately 100 head of cattle, mostly cows and calves. In 2016, the property taxes were about $1270. Information about the size, age of the home, and property taxes are taken from the Blount County Tax Assessor website and are believed to be accurate but not guaranteed.
Location: This property is very centrally located, and would be a reasonable to commute to the bigger cities. It is only 20 miles to beautiful Lake Guntersville, 52 miles to Birmingham, 50 miles to Huntsville, 26 miles to Cullman, 33 miles to Gadsden, 111 miles to Chattanooga, TN, and 90 miles to Rome, Georgia.
