COMMENTS: This little horse farm is just perfect for active retirement with lots of outbuildings for all your hobbies. The current owner in the past restored antique vehicles and therefore had the perfect facility constructed to do this. Being in the horse business, he also has a very nice horse barn. Best part is all of his outbuildings are steel constructed. Scenic setting nestled in a valley right at the base of Sugar Loaf Mountain. Bad weather is not a problem as the farm borders right on a lightly traveled state highway and its just minutes away from a major city, but far out enough for privacy and lots of peace and quite. Best of hunting for deer, quail, squirrel, turkey and even a black bear ever now and then. Fishing in the many nearby streams and lakes or right in the ponds located on the farm. Good place to ride horses on Sugar Loaf Mountain where there are miles and miles of forest trails just waiting to be explored. Low taxes, low maintenance and just a pretty and fun place to spend retirement.
