There is always strong demand for beautiful, virgin woodlands in Sweet Owen County, particularly if the tract contains a well-kept dwelling or cabin. Rarely does such a property become available. However, that opportunity as arrived! Welcome to the Close Road parcel, located just minutes northwest of Spencer near Rattlesnake Road. This 15 acre property is surrounded by very clear, well-defined property lines. Fourteen acres of this tract have been designated as a Classified Forest, providing the prospective owner an opportunity to purchase such a beautiful, peaceful tract without incurring a significant real estate tax obligation. The tax assessment on this tract is ridiculously low. Situated near the south end of the tract is a charming 1,450 SF, 2 BR, 2-story cabin providing glorious views from all sides. The relaxation can happen both on the front porch as well as the back. The buyer can spend endless hours rocking on an 8' x 40' front porch, or maybe the buyer would prefer coming directly off the kitchen or master bedroom onto a 10' x 23' rear covered porch. There is room for many, many rocking chairs here! The cornerstone of the home is a 19' x 20' great room, boasting a Fisher wood burning unit, capable of heating the entire cabin if necessary. This room contains windows around the entire perimeter, casting an abundant amount of natural light into the room. A stairway provides access to a 11' x 15' bedroom upstairs, complete with its own half bath. An 18' x 10' master bedroom is located off the great room, providing direct access to the covered rear deck. The cabin's full bath facility is also located off the great room. A beautiful craftsman kitchen rounds out the ground floor living area, equipped with a wall-mounted oven and microwave. The centerpiece of the kitchen is a flush-mounted electric range inserted into the center island. Views from the kitchen are fabulous! All appliances will be sold with the home. To complement the dwelling, the property provides a 12' x 12' storage shed equipped with a 9' x 12' lean-to. And to make things even more fun for the kids or grand kids, there is a 14' x 16' bunkhouse that could easily be converted into living quarters, a craft cottage, or used for animal stabling. It goes without saying that this tract will provide the prospective hunter with premier whitetail deer and turkey hunting - the best that southern Indiana can offer. In addition, there is an abundance of small game everywhere. This tract has been owned by the same family for over 65 years. The current owner cannot ever remember the tract being logged, and a walk through the forest will easily confirm that notion. If you've always dreamed of having your own peace of heaven to either serve as your principal residence or to serve as the perfect weekend getaway, you need to schedule an appointment to tour this property!
