Don't miss this one. If you ever wanted a small acreage on a river (Shell Rock) than this updated home is for you. A boater, hunter, fisherman, or hobby farmer paradise. The owner loves the riverfront living, relaxing and viewing the wildlife. Where else can you live and be able to canoe or boat for miles after dinner, deer hunt in the fall, turkey hunt in the spring, fish for your evening meal, and cross country ski in the winter - all outside your back door! Incredible outdoor experiences for the whole family. The home features an open concept kitchen to dining area, 5 bedrooms (3 upstairs and 2 on the main level, new master suite with bathroom). There is a functional wood burning stove and other classic home features. New double pane insulated windows in 2011. Owners also put on a new roof in 2012 and a new front deck. Garage is even heated. The special thing about this property is that this home sale includes a 2nd parcel/lot (0.93 acres) that has tons of potential. Don't wait.
