Opportunity abounds on this sprawling 5-acre ranchette. With three homes, three garages/shops, and a large, newer horse barn, your imagination is the only limit. One home is divided into two separate apartments: one on the upper level and one on the lower. Both are being currently rented out. Of the other two homes, one is utilized as a rental, and one is the primary residence. The horse barn offers a stunning structure for your equine with an additional tack room for equipment. Several trees flourishing on the property keep the area shaded and cool in the summer heat. The property has many different uses and is being sold as is where is.
