Looking for a small hobby farm, fixer upper house on acreage, your own personal homestead property in a great location, or a great recreational retreat with access to the Shade River? You have found it. The property features 10.875 acres with 550 feet of frontage on the East Branch of the Shade River and only 250 feet from the main branch of the Shade River which ultimately flows a few miles away to the Ohio River. The Shade River State Forest and Public hunting Area is only 3.5 Miles away as well. There is approximately 7.5 acres of tillable/pasture land, 2.5 acres of woods, and the rest is the home site on which sets a 1536 sq foot old farm house (lived in until 3 1/2 years ago) and a couple of small sheds.
