A Beautiful Home

There is a plot of land 105 acres about a half mile down the road from my mother's house. In this shot you can see one of the many old abandoned barns on the property. I am very interested in the possibility of purchasing around 30 acres of this land and maybe refurbishing the barn as a country home as it is in solid shape and on a good foundation. There are over 10 other abandoned barns on the property that could also be rebuilt into guests houses, dance halls, etc. The downsides to this land is that it is not waterfront, but it is across the street and about 5 minutes on foot to water. The desirable barn is right on the road which is also less than perfect, and the previous tenant seemed to run a tractor repair shop so there may be some oil spillage, or machinist oil sunk into the soil that will need cleaning.

Otherwise, it is a very exciting piece of property!


  1. alex - this looks incredible. i like that there are already structures on the property.

  2. I'm waaaaay into barns. I like the way they look, I like the way they smell, I like the memories that are inside of them.

    These things were built to last...we could easily fix one up.
