This beautiful country home is located in the southeast corner of Indiana and is situated on 15 well-manicured acres with a 2.5 acre pond and sits amongst the rolling hills and large hardwoods of southern Indiana.

The 4000± square foot home with finished basement was built in 2000 and has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. On the main level you’ll find the kitchen with solid wood cabinets, a multi-level island with bar seating, a built in cooktop, oven and microwave with stone accent surround. Directly off the kitchen you’ll find the dining area. The living room just off the kitchen has a vaulted ceiling, a stone fireplace with gas log and French doors leading out to the porch. The master bedroom and bathroom sit just off the living room.

Also on the main level is a large, stunning family room. A large stone wood-burning fireplace sits at the center of the room and vaulted ceilings, wood beams and wood detail through the room make you feel like you’re in a mountain escape.

If you take the beautiful wood staircase up from the living room you’ll find a loft space perfect for an office or sitting area as well as two more bedrooms and a bathroom. Downstairs in the finished basement you’ll find a living area with a stone corner fireplace and gas log, a custom stone wet bar with beautiful woodwork throughout. Also in the basement is a bedroom and 3rd bathroom.

The attached 2-car, oversized garage is 36’ x 36’ and has 12’ garage doors, hot & cold water and space for a workshop and extra storage as well as access to the large attic storage space.

Outside you’ll enjoy sitting on the wrap around porch and enjoying the view of the large, stocked pond, pasture and partially wooded area. A 30’ x 60’ pole barn is the perfect place to store your equipment or toys. The pole barn also contains an area that has been converted into a workshop perfect for working on your favorite projects. It is air conditioned and heated and has running water and is plumbed for a bathroom. The stunning pond includes a 768 sq. ft., custom built floating dock with Brazilian walnut decking, steel framed, and a built in firepit. Spend your Sunday afternoons fishing and enjoying friends and family on the dock. The stocked and well-managed pond includes large mouth bass, crappie and first-generation Georgia giant hybrid bluegill. The pond is clean and a perfect spot to swim.
