Property Description:

627 Chisholm Pond Rd is a homesteaders dream, with a water source that never stops, multiple outbuildings and a passive solar home with a great opportunity to be self sufficient and expand the use of the property for personal or commercial growth. The land has been used to provide wood, the barn to house chickens, the field to grow, the wild elderberries to provide tincture and the swamp maples to provide syrup. I would love to see this land expanded in its ability to "live off the land" for the next owners. The peace of the location and of the home are truly unparalleled and we are sad to leave it, but hopeful the next owners will love it as we did. Palermo is home to herbalists, goat farmers, wheat growers and numerous farms with a bluegrass festival in August and a great community spirit.

PASSIVE SOLAR and extremely energy efficient, the 3 bedroom 3600 square foot home used 5 cord of wood and 150 gallons of fuel for the ENTIRE year. Upper floor living with Living Room, Kitchen, bathroom and Master bedroom upstairs and 2 bedrooms, bathroom and family room downstairs. New wood flooring has been completed upstairs and the half bath was recently installed.

The barn has 2 cow stalls and 2 horse stalls and an addition to the side perfect for poultry. The barn has electricity wired to it, but is unhooked at this time. The garage is oversized and very large upstairs. The brook on the property runs year round. Wild Elderberries are plentiful and the swamp maples are tapped every year for syrup. Plenty of wood on the property will keep you supplied for years.

The property is currently listed on MLS with only 4 acres, but is being offered here with the full 19 acres.

Priced at $230,000
