The master suite features a clawfoot tub, tile walk in shower, dual vanities, and easy access to the large walk in closet. A large, locally sourced rock fireplace is featured between the dining and living areas. Steps away from the home is a 2.5 +/- acre pond with a boat dock stocked with bass.
Improvements on the ranch are highlighted by a 5,000 +/- square foot shop with 4 roll-up doors. Three of the bays are open to each other and provide plenty of room to store equipment and supplies and the 4th bay is an enclosed workshop. The shop also includes a one bedroom, one bathroom living quarters with radiant heat, complete with a full kitchen and living room.
