Twelve years ago, we fell in love with this property and built our dream house. We intended to stay her forever or at least as long as possible among the peaceful beauty, with the company of our horses and the native wildlife. Living here was like being in a world of our own, no noise and unbelievable views everywhere. We truly believe that this is one of the most beautiful sites in southern Indiana. However, life has a way of altering plans. Our son moved out-of-state last year, and we have decided to move to be near to him. While we will dearly miss our beautiful country site and our built-to-order house, we find that we miss him and our daughter-in-law even more.
Our 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3100 sq. ft. Coronado stone house sits on 23.74 secluded acres, 18 of which are in woods. It is possible for a buyer to recoup at least $30,000 by selling timber from the property. The site, which has 1,311 ft. road frontage, is nestled among trees and fields and is bordered by Clark State Forestry. It is only 10 minutes to Henryville and I-65; 20 minutes to all types of shopping, entertainment and restaurants; 26 miles to Louisville, Kentucky.
On the main floor of the open-concept house is the foyer; the great room with living, dining and kitchen space; the master suite; a second bedroom; a second full bath; a mud room; and a large laundry room with lots of cabinets, a double stacked washer and dryer and a large sink. The master suite has a large double walk-in closet. The slate tile master bath has lots of cabinets, a jet soaker tub and a stand-alone shower. The kitchen area of the great room has granite counter tops; hickory cabinets; a built in stove; a double-door refrigerator; a Jenn Air cooktop; and a huge walk-in pantry with a freezer. The main floor is accessible from the front deck, the attached 24x24 ft. garage or the back door which opens to the great room, none of which involves steps.
In the lower level the finished walkout portion of the basement, contains a third full bathroom and 3 bedrooms, one of which is 14x21 ft. and has two walk-in closets. The finished walkout area of the lower level is accessible from the main level or from the outside through a glassed double door. In addition to the finished living space on the lower level, there is a large 15x65 ft. storage area, which contains the dual system furnace and the on demand water heater.
The site is perfect for horseback riding, hiking and gardening. There is a fenced pasture and a 34x48 ft. barn which has 3 stalls, and plenty of room to build more. One can ride from trails on the property to over 60 miles of horse trails in the forestry. Entrance to the historic Knobstone hiking trail is only 3 tenths of a mile away.
