School busses from Grand Ledge, Charlotte, and Potterville all pass the driveway twice a day. Pick your school and provide your children with the finest education. Cable internet with its own amplifier is provided, at an installation cost over 10k. Blazing speeds will keep your family streaming, and up todate. 1/3 of a mile off the main road, this home has everything an animal lover or hunter could want. Escape the hustle of city lights every evening after work and school. Upon arrival, the lack of noise and light pollution are the first items to take your breath away. There is no road or traffic noise. Listen to the birds chirp, crickets sing and the frog pond across the property play the sweet tune of mother nature. In the evenings, enjoy the night sky, star watching without any light pollution, while viewing your favorite constellations with the family, without a sound.

play the sweet tune of mother nature. In the evenings, enjoy the night sky, star watching without any light pollution, while viewing your favorite constellations with the family, without a sound. From time to time, one can hear airplanes fighting the wind at 39,000 feet above, all while embracing the peace of country living. Record whitetail bucks have been spotted on the property for over 90 years. This is a single owner property since 1921. Without the possibility of any new homes, your private estate will remain isolated for life. With thousands of surrounding acres of deciduous trees, watch in awe as the fall colors embrace your soul. In May, watch the thousands of Cherry blossom trees display their beauty, while they provide the intoxicating vibrant scent of spring, in the air. With an exterior building west of the home, you can store the extra goodies the typical homeowner has on hand, keeping the 2.5 car garage clean and clear. This outbuilding also serves as a horse or cow run, protecting them from the weather. With 2 acres of 4 strand fencing, a pasture rotation is available. The previous owners had cows and horses on the property. With water and electric fencing, already installed, just add the animals if you desire. In 2018, the 2800 sq ft home had new luxury carpet installed, including fresh paint. There are oak cabinets in the enormous open kitchen. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home also includes a master bedroom and closet to be the envy of all your friends and neighbors. The basement has finished 9ft ceilings, a 850sq ft family room with dual sliding barn doors, and plenty of room for a wet bar and a man cave. There is extra space for everyone. There are 2 additional egress windows in the unfinished portion of the home, for a total of 3 egresses below grade. The tall 10.5 ft poured wall basement, offers a blank canvas for more bedrooms, an office, or a place for the Mrs to escape to for her projects. The oversized high efficiency forced air furnace keeps the heating bills down, even during the coldest winters. On average, at 71 degrees, only 1 and a ½ tanks of propane are consumed from October to May. The average light bill is $140. When originally built, the previous owners were in a rush, with a new baby on the way. They chose to use engineered trusses and exterior walls to save construction time. The exterior walls are R25 made from 2x6 lumber. Blown attic insulation of 24" keeps this home energy efficient. Don't let the furnace on the main floor fool you, the owner, who was a builder, chose this downdraft model to save time. Placing the furnace below grade has been on the list, but never was completed. The duct work may still be in the basement, allowing the change a fast and painless one. With an included water softener purchase from Culligan, your wash and showers are a luxury to experience. The soft water keeps cleaning to a minimum. The sale of the home will include an additional 10 acres to the west of the property. The owner does not wish to sell it. However, they will offer a lifetime lease to the buyer. This includes hundreds of harvestable ash and elm trees for firewood, a place for hunting the big whitetails and atv trails. The additional 10 acres is ½ mile deep and starts at Doane Hwy, while ending at the Davis Hwy road line. Although, now grown to harvestable ash trees, the old roadbed is still intact for all the adventure seekers. Life lease will be offered at $300 annually for taxes. Come view this private estate, where all your needs are met. This home was built by an engineer, providing the finest drainage, even during the harshest storms. In 2019, the home sat high and dry with regular lawn mowing. 7,000 yards of sand were hauled in during construction to keep everything high and dry. The foundation is backfilled with 48" of class 2 sand and all drainage is buried to keep all water away from the home.
