In the last century some knew it as the Hickory Row Farm, others as the Ruggles Farm. Time has come again for homebuyers to consider this south facing, ridge top, pre-Civil War homestead. Beyond the ridge is a hilltop ideal for camping, celebratory events, even a very old shack. New roofs on the barn and carriage house(garage) encourages a broad use of the 9.92 acres as a kind of Hobby Farm. Imagine the possibilities, they are endless. Modernity finds expression in features not found in most new homes. Yet much renovation remains to emerge from the creativity of those emboldened to grasp a heritage and cast their own traditions. This has been the history of this property, a successive homeowner since 1851. An American tradition preserved, welcome, you are not alone. There are helpful neighbors in these parts too. The sun rising and setting, the moon phases, night sky, the summer breeze, changing of the seasons, wildlife-all prominent here on the ridge top, living closer to nature. This a calming place in a busy and hyped-up world. A place to embrace meaningful and purposeful living. The small morning sun room off the kitchen or either the front or side porches are the perfect place to start and/or end your day. The property is partially wooded and features a barn, carriage house(garage), and hilltop shack that are awaiting TLC from the new owners. The enviable location places you very near Lake Lemon, I-69 and borders Morgan Monroe State Forest across the back property line. The current owners have upgraded the HVAC with a Hybrid system that included a high efficiency heat pump and gas furnace., new duct work, Electrical system to 200-amp panel, Naveen whole house instant hot water heater, Rain soft water softener and a water purification system. CertainTeed Monogram Series vinyl siding and Owens Corning heavy weight 30-year shingles over new plywood roof decking. The interior is not completed and open to your vision. The architectural original design is still in tack but in need of a cosmetic overhaul to restore this home to its original style and beauty.
