This property is a sportsman’s dream come true. The 86.42 acres has been managed for wildlife for 20 plus years. Everything that the owners have done has been to promote wildlife on the property. The work and effort put into it is amazing. They have planted over 20,000 trees as part of the management plan. The trees planted include several species of pine and spruce as well as American chestnut, pecan, persimmon, butternut, hybrid poplar, bald cypress, pin oaks, apple, and several other species. Several of the trees are hybrids or disease resistant. The American chestnut is a State Potentially Threatened Species, and Butternut is a Regional Forestry Sensitive Species in the Eastern Region of the US. So many of these are mast producing trees. The food plots are planted in corn and brassica to help hold the animals over for the winter. Part of the property is in some choice CRP programs which provide an income and also great habitat. Some of the items planted in these areas include big bluestem, little bluestem, foxtail, Indian grass, side oats gramma, switch grass, and sorghum.
A wetlands was developed on the property and is home to several species of waterfowl, amphibians, reptiles and other wildlife. The wetlands easement covers 15 acres of the property and protects it from ever being developed in the future. Only a few acres of this is actually under water. The remainder of the property is in a conservation easement that will protect it from ever being developed. These easements are different than most because they allow you to plant as you wish and also harvest timber when needed. There is approximately a 2 acre building lot included at the road if you ever wanted to build another home or outbuildings on the property. The property is also in the CAUV program which helps keep the taxes low.
The mature woods consists of a diverse mix of hardwood species including, tulip, oak, maple, hickory, basswood, ash, and other typical species native to the region. The undergrowth provides several other plants such as goldenseal, ginseng and black cohosh, which are uncommon and of unique interest in Ohio. You will also find Jack-in-the-Pulpit, marsh marigold, bloodroot, trillium, and wild ginger. A local college likes to bring students out each year because of the diversity of plants and wildlife that can’t be found just anywhere. There is a nice creek that borders the property and provides a good water source most of the year. The whitetail on the property will impress you and there are some photos to prove it. Then there is the beautiful 2 acre pond that is up to 8 feet deep and well stocked with plenty of game and pan fish. The fishing is terrific and will keep you busy reeling them in. The property is also just north of the golf course.
The gorgeous home looks like something out of a magazine. The raised flower gardens surrounding the home and yard are stunning. There is so much passion that went into them; you can’t explain it you just have to see it. The multitude of perennials will impress even the most knowledgeable gardener. The home has over 2000 square feet of living space. The living room and family room give you plenty of room for entertaining. The kitchen has oak cabinets, custom quartz counter-tops, and a dinette area. There is also a laundry, a half bath, and a dining room/office on the first floor. Upstairs you will find three nice size bedrooms including the owner’s suite with a full bath and walk in closet. In the hallway there is another full bathroom. The basement is partially finished. You will also find the energy efficient wood burning furnace and tank-less hot water heater. The wood-burning furnace is in addition to the gas furnace. There is a two car attached garage and an additional two car detached garage. The home and the detached garage both have newer roofs and they were done with 50 year dimensional shingles that look great. The driveway is all concrete and looks to be flawless. On the back of the house is a huge deck that overlooks the back yard. Out by the pond there is a pole barn for storing your tools and toys. The barn measures 48×32 with ten foot ceilings and has a full length lean to on the back. I don’t think that you could ask for much more than this property has to offer. To top it all off it’s only about a 40-minute drive to Cleveland and a 50-minute drive to Akron or Sandusky making it an easy commute. Don’t miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime.
