Well, we found a homestead we are interested in.It was built in 1945; 3BR, 1 full bath, 2 half baths, full basement with a poured concrete foundation. 2 Car garage, central air, wood burning furnace and hot water heater, 11.37 acres, fully fenced and cross fenced, large barn, greenhouse, pasture, woods, pond and a 3br 2 ba newer trailer for Judy all for 99K.
We have requested additional info and gone onto Google streetview to check it out. Its a little closer to the rural road than we would like but it has just about everything we are looking for and the price is great.
Here are some pictures:
As you can see its a stone house. Barn is behind the house to the left and the trailer is directly behind the house along a road that traverses the property to the back 40.
The entire area is country country country. Its a rural unincorporated town of a couple hundred. It has a gas station, 2 cafes, and a grocery/feed store. Its also within commute distance to Fort Leonard Wood (about 35 - 40 minutes).
Historical 2 story barn that looks to be in pretty good shape. We requested additional pictures.
Looks to be a newer trailer. Would build a covered screened in front porch and deck, a back porch, storage building, dog run etc.
The fancy greenhouse, we would also build a simple hoop house.
The small building is the wood furnace/hot water heater. Very efficient, burns even scrap wood (i.e., pallets) and works when the power is out. Will be handy in the event Zombies take over the power grid eh?
We like the kitchen but the modern stove, refer and egad..microwave have to go. The water is on a well and I would consider a hand pump...Holly isnt sure how a handpump works with a dishwasher..heh, heh
You can see the barn and top of the greenhouse out the windows.
Paneling of course has to go...the orange shag carpeting....yuck
And finally the living room.
All carpeting would have to go....I am somewhat scared by the lack of photos of the bathrooms (its an important place in our life!) and I am curious about the basement (we want it to be useful and not just a hiding place for zombies and monsters).
Hopefully we will get additional info before I head to the far east...
