12 acres; 6 acres pasture or arable, 4 acres woods with pond; the house is on 2 acres, one of which is the corner of Clarksville Pike and Harper Road. Fenced garden area with orchard; the entire property has been organized around permaculture, traditional and fruit nut and ornamental trees and two established beehives. We’ve rotationally-grazed sheep, cattle, chickens, turkeys and hogs on this farm for the last six years with amazing results! This is an ideally-sized small farm for a hobby homestead, horse ranch, organic vegetable operation and much more! Orchard includes: apple (6 varieties), pear, peach, apricot, cherry, plum, elderberry, pecan, walnut, almond, persimmon, jujube, Melon tree, Pawpaw (4 varieties) and more! Berry patch includes: blueberry, Gogi Berry, Currant, Fig (3 varieties), Medlar and more!

Approximately 1,600 sq. ft., 3-4 bedroom, 1 bath house built in 1930s. Open floor plan with distinctive character. Hardwood floors throughout, except kitchen with cork floors. Custom wood-burning stove in living room, which heats the entire house well. New energy-efficient A/C unit installed this year. Large, open room upstairs, with built-in bookcases in the stairwell and exposed brick from the chimney. Covered deck connected with upstairs. An attached 2,000 sq. ft. garage/shop with electricity and water, as well as a large, lockable toolshed is adjacent; outdoor tractor shed, an old barn and several other small outbuildings. Privacy is guaranteed with the 10 ft. privacy fence in the front and back yards. Dogs and kids alike are safe to roam freely, with large chain-link gates protecting the entire front perimeter. On two sides of the house 6 varieties of bamboo are well-established, and are already providing an entirely different kind of privacy and sense of seclusion. Over the last six years, we’ve modified this home in too many ways to list, having cared for it as we were going to live here forever. (But, of course, things change, etc.) Because of this, our long-term investments are your gain! While we’d like to sell this place to a small farmer/ family, it would also make a very good investment for later development. List Price: $279,000.
