Water, water everywhere. This beautiful Morgan County farm has a private 9 acre spring fed lake teeming with bass, brim, and crappie, located in the center of 85+/- beautiful acres. With three docks and a small boat ramp - you'll enjoy fishing and boating on your own private lake. The land has a beautiful roll to it, and has been well tended for generations - towering trees guard the homestead. Across from Bowden Lake you'll find about 20 acres of established pasture, with the balance wooded. An established trail system gives you access to most of the land, and much of the perimeter is fenced. The woods are full of wildlife - supported by the abundance of water and diverse hardwood forest.
Planning your dream home? There are excellent building sites to choose from, and with about 1700ft of road frontage the property would make an outstanding multi-owner compound.

With 1624sf on both levels, there is space to create a modern dream house. The main floor has a spacious great room with masonry fireplace, plus a large kitchen, sunroom and two bedrooms.

Closets galore in this home.
Gardeners and cooks will enjoy the greenhouse - imagine fresh herbs and greens year around, and a place to start your plants early in the spring. Or perhaps your greenhouse will be filled with fragrant flowers - either way you look at it, this lakeside space may become one of your favorites. There's a 36ft long lakeside patio on the ground floor - perfect for relaxing or entertaining. Looking for a project?
