On the market for the first time in four decades is a unique 42.83 acres in Cass County, Indiana. The property is a rich blend of habitats including more than 3.5 acres of ponds, almost a half mile of Spring Creek frontage, and additional flooded acreage subject to beaver activity. Over half the area is wooded and the tillable land has been abandoned for more than 10 years, so the entire parcel has evolved into a wildlife sanctuary. The home is a 2000 sq ft 2-story, 3-bedroom, 2-bath, with a large dining area, office, and mudroom. It includes a 26’x 26’ unfinished basement with a storage room fully plumbed for a third bathroom. The floors feature ceramic tile, red oak, mill run hickory, and carpet. The house is well insulated, vinyl sided and has a 50-year standing seam metal roof. An 8.8kw solar array provides nearly 100 percent of electricity needs. High efficiency ductless mini split heat pumps provide heating and cooling, but two natural gas furnaces and central AC units can be put into service if necessary. A soapstone wood stove is used for supplemental heat and there are two functioning fireplaces— one each in the living room and master bedroom. Included are two 30’x 30’ organic gardens, an 8’x 8’ root cellar, a wood fired sauna, 12'x36’ hoop house, a 4'x4'x6’ cinder block smokehouse, a 30’x 60’ pole barn, a bank barn with attached 12’x36’ lean-to and 30’x 40’ pole barn, a shop, a chicken house, and a deluxe composting outhouse! Outside the kitchen’s sliding doors is a deck and brick patio and boardwalk leading to a second deck at the pond edge. This is where you enjoy morning coffee while taking in seasonal changes around the pond. In spring the geese fuss over nest sites. Wood ducks and hooded mergansers vie for nest boxes. As the water warms you consider a meal of fresh bluegill or opt for a refreshing dip in your own private swimming hole. Later in the year the cattails ripen, the bald cypress trees glow, and when the snow falls there’s a view worthy of a postcard outside your window. The house is not visible from the road and neighbors are out of sight. It’s quiet and private. More than 50 species of songbirds come to visit or nest. You can live here comfortably with a low carbon footprint, surrounded by a rich variety of wildlife, and enjoying the magic in every season. It’s a rare find, and a great place to call home.
