49-Acre farm • One parcel • Open and wooded • Good solid bank barn • Excellent hunting • Fenced pasture/hay fields • Free gas • Springs • Millcreek Twp. • River View Schools
This 49-acre farm is located between Clark and Coshocton, and surrounded by hills and woods. The land is made up of about 35 acres tillable and 15 acres of woods. A nice creek crosses the entire property in the front, and there is ample spring water here. Large parcels like this don’t come up very often, and this farm is being offered as a single parcel.
There are multiple buildings, including an older farmhouse, a large bank barn that is less than 15 years old, and a 24×40 washhouse/shop that is located directly behind the main house. This building is insulated and has a heated concrete floor. There is free gas to the property. Also included is a 28×40 two-story shop building that has a workshop on the second floor, with machinery and buggy storage on the first floor.
The barn leads to the pasture, which has nice springs for watering livestock.
While the old farmhouse needs remodeling, it is currently being lived in. The house seems nice and straight, and sits on a sturdy stone foundation. There is a kitchen, living room and bedroom on the main floor and four bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. (There is a septic system on the property that has not been used in several years.)
This property has a lot of potential, and a number of different options: You could live in one of the outbuildings while you remodel the farmhouse; rent the farmhouse and other buildings and run a beef operation, or simply do your farming and let the house sit.
Even though it is located on a state highway, the buildings sit well off the road, and this is a nice private location. The location offers an easy commute to either Coshocton (approx. 9 miles) or Millersburg (approx. 15 miles), so you can either work or shop in town, and still enjoy owning a country property that is easily accessed.
There is excellent hunting here (see deer rack and turkey photos) and the back corner of the property is completely wooded. The back corner adjoins other parcels that are heavily wooded and part of literally hundreds of acres of unbroken woods, ponds, etc. There have been some nice bucks taken here in recent years, and there are more out there! Some excellent turkeys have been taken on the property as well. You could very easily put up a hunting cabin here and enjoy some of the best hunting this part of Ohio has to offer — again, there are lots of options here whether you are a farmer, hunter or homesteader.
