The Longest House You’ve Ever Seen: A Unique Farm Property in Rural Illinois
Have you ever seen a house that looks like three houses put together end to end? If not, then you must check out this unique farm property in rural Illinois. This affordable (listed at $290,000), one-of-a-kind barndominium-style home is sited on 5 acres of Ag-zoned property and conveniently located just 10 minutes south of RT 34 in Sandwich, IL.
A Perfect Opportunity to Live with Your Horses
The property was once part of a larger thoroughbred training facility with box stalls and an owner's apartment. The current owners have retained a portion of the stable that includes some of the original 12' x 12' box stalls at one end of the structure. The attached stable has 6 box stalls, a workroom, and a heated barn area with an overhead door to the yard that could be used for garage parking, if desired. This is a perfect opportunity for anyone who wishes to live with their horses or create their own homestead.
Spacious Living Space and Greenhouse
Inside the home, there is about 1,500 sq feet of living space at one end of the structure. The family room has updated hardwood flooring, a dining room area, a cozy kitchen with appliances, a sunny breakfast room with new vinyl flooring, three bedrooms, two of which have generous walk-in closets, and a three-season room called the 'greenhouse' off the master.
There is a full bath and a laundry room with a washer & dryer within the home. The tile floored mud room/utility room has a door to the front yard, a large storage room, and is the area of the home that gives you direct access to the attached stable.
Beautiful Pastures and RV Plugs
The property has road frontage on two sides, but is primarily accessed off the blacktop county road by a centrally located drive, flanked by an approximately 1+ acre fenced pasture to the south of the drive and a 1+ acre pasture to the north of the drive. The north pasture is fenced on three sides and has access to the run-in shed, and is near the well and nearby water hydrant. There is an RV plug located near the outside electrical service and a 2nd RV plug located near the mud room door. Additionally, there is a 12 x 12 shed for storage, a fire-pit and additional pasture area that could be fenced and accessed from the gravel side road.
This well-cared-for home is being sold in 'as-is' condition. This farm property is a perfect opportunity for anyone who loves to live with horses, create their own homestead, or just enjoy the beauty of rural Illinois. It's a must-see for anyone looking for a unique and spacious living space.
