The outdoor wood-burning stove heats the entire house with baseboard hot water heat. A large covered woodshed (9 x 40 ft.) enclosure is next to the stove and the wood on the property easily fuels the stove. There are four heating zones, two 275 gallon tanks for the oil backup heating, and 200 amp service wired for generator.

The professionally designed horse barn is 30 x 44 ft. with concrete floor, electric, separate frost free well, and an attached roof area for tractor/access. The barn currently has three box stalls with tack area but could easily accommodate additional stalls; individual turn-out doors. Solar powered vinyl horse fence for main pasture; a run leads to a second large pasture. Miles of trails for riding, hiking, ATVs.

Planted varieties include: Pin Oak, Colorado Blue Spruce, Crimson Maple, Crimson Birch, and multiple decorative varieties throughout the property including fruit bearing trees and bushes. The remaining open land consists of hay fields (could be tillable, and easily organic), pasture, and thickets with food plots.

Abundant wildlife thrive on the cultivated prime hunting land, including white-tailed deer, cotton-tailed rabbits, ruffed grouse, eastern wild turkeys, songbirds, and many others. Wildlife sign throughout. Two hunting blinds.
