Cagles Mill Tiny Home on 15 Acres.

Are you looking for a spot of your own to relax and unwind in peace and serenity?  This property located in Owen County, Indiana might just be what you're looking for! This multi-use property has much to offer starting with the house.  The home may be small but packs a big punch! Construction was finished on this house in 2022 and at approximately 700 SQ FT, it has everything you need.  It consists of one bed, one bath, a kitchen and living room. With wood siding, a metal roof, and a small covered porch, its appearance fits well into the small opening in the woods in which it sets.  Inside you will find that it is  well designed and ascetically pleasing. With wrapped wood exposed beams under vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light, the main area feels surprisingly open and roomy inside. This area consists of a TV nook, a living area, and the kitchen. The kitchen area has not had cabinets installed, allowing you to choose the style that best fits your taste. The living area has large double glass doors that let in light and offer great views of the woods.  Outside of these doors a covered porch could be built that would make for a great outdoor space.  The bedroom is spacious and could easily fit a queen size bed. It has an oversized closet, barn style entry door and a window with a great view of your woods and wildlife. The bathroom is stellar! It is spacious, well-lit, and modern. There is a tile shower that has a decorative glass door, rain water head, and room enough for two! There is a single sink oak vanity with a large mirror and light. Washer and dryer hook ups are located in the bathroom along with a large linen and utility closet.  The home is designed to be maximally functional and efficient with led lights and thick spray foam insulation, which makes it like a thermos that keeps you warm in winter and cool in the summer, while keeping utility bills very low. The home was heated last winter on under 100 LBS of propane.  All utilities are on site including 200 amp power service, city water, septic system, and high speed FIBER internet for streaming and working from home.  There is also an RV hook up installed near the meter base.

Outside on the over 15 acres of land, you will find much to do! With rolling topography and a lot of wildlife, the woods has great hunting opportunities. There are trails for walking or riding that allow you to enjoy nature as you go.  One of the hillsides is steep and serves as the backstop for a private gun range for you and your friends. There is some good timber on the property including oaks and walnuts that could be harvested for immediate income or could be allowed to grow, making a living savings account for the future.

If you require a bigger home with more space there are two additional building sites near the back of the property that are easy accessed from another road and have utilities at the street.  This portion of the property could be divided from the tract with the existing home and sold separately and would include about 7.4 acres.  There is also the option to build a larger home where the current house sits. You could use the existing home as temporary housing during construction and then as a mother-in-law suite afterward or even sell the home itself and have it removed from the property.  This could be a great option for someone looking to build because you would have a home in an ideal location and at the same time save 10's of thousands of dollars on development cost as all utilities are already installed and the driveway access has already been created.

Let's talk about the location! It is in a peaceful and serene area, away from people and in nature. The 1,400 acre Cagles Mill Lake is just across the street, only about 1/4 mile away as the crow flies, with a boat ramp being about 2 miles away. Surrounding the lake is beautiful Lieber State Rec Area, consisting of over 8000 acres and providing many outdoor recreational opportunities all just a short distance from home.  With this property you can live in the country and still be close to all that that the city has to offer as it is located just 15 minutes from I-70, 30 minutes from Terre Haute, 45 minutes from Bloomington, and 60 minutes from Indianapolis.  If you would like more information or for a private tour, contact listing agent Andrew Epperson at 812-789-6688
