Stunning recreational farm perfect for equestrian or hunting retreat offering the seclusion and privacy of approximately 160 acres of wooded beauty, elevation change, and serene pasture as well as a large pond and portion of the Kentucky Creek carving through the valley with train car bottom bridge crossing, all without sacrificing luxury and comfort by way of the stately 6 bed, 5.5 bath home with space galore and scenic treed views tucked at the end of a long gravel drive. Enter the main level to find a large formal dining room, spacious office for home business, huge kitchen with loads of beautiful cabinetry, incredible prep space, center island with cooktop, stainless appliances, eat-in dining area, and pantry, light and bright sun room overlooking valley with treed pond/creek views, and a warm, inviting living room. Upper level houses three well-adorned guest bedrooms and two nicely appointed guest baths (one a secondary suite with whirlpool bath), incredible laundry room with upper and lower cabinetry, lots of folding space and a skylight, and sprawling master bedroom (30' x 15' plus 11'9 x 11'7 alcove) offering room to relax, unwind and more, plus adjoining spa-like master bath with separate vanities, water closet, generous walk-in shower and center air bubbler soaking tub. Walk-out lower level has family room/recreation room with stone surround fireplace, two guest bedrooms and additional full bathroom.
