    Situated at 57964 Eakin Settlement Road, a sprawling 150-acre rural hobby farm awaits those with an affinity for country living and an entrepreneurial spirit. The centerpiece of this expansive property is a 3,000 square foot log home that seamlessly blends rustic charm and modern comfort. The home features two spacious bedrooms and a living room that exudes warmth and coziness, thanks to a beautiful rock fireplace. Further enhancing the appeal is a massive covered patio, perfect for outdoor dining or simply savoring the tranquil pastoral views. Smaller lookout balconies peppered across the house offer additional intimate spaces to connect with nature.

    The log home's exterior is as robust as it is visually appealing, with a durable metal roof ensuring all-weather protection. The architectural design, reminiscent of classic rural aesthetics, is in perfect harmony with the property's countryside surroundings. Whether you're cozied up by the fireplace or enjoying the fresh air on the patio, this home invites you to bask in the serenity and simplicity of farm life.

    The property includes 20 fenced acres, thoughtfully designed for rearing livestock. The spaces provide ample room for goats, cows, and pigs to roam, graze, and thrive. A few outbuildings on the farm serve as functional areas for various agricultural activities, while a greenhouse provides the ideal environment for gardening. Dry storage areas ensure your tools, equipment, and harvest remain safe and well-preserved.

    Across the road, an additional 130-acre parcel adds to the property's allure. This land comprises 80 acres of mixed forest, ripe with logging potential, and 50 hayable acres, offering a source of feed for livestock or an additional income stream. A creek, with fish and flowing until late July depending on the weather, meanders through the parcel, adding to the picturesque landscape. The presence of gold in the creek opens up an exciting avenue for gold mining, transforming this hobby farm into a prospectors' paradise.

    Adding to the property's potential is a small cabin located on the parcel. Although currently gutted, it holds great promise for renovation. Once refurbished, it could serve as an additional income-generating rental unit or as a separate permanent residence. The cabin, with its potential for transformation, is another example of the opportunities that this property presents.

    The farm is being offered with the possibility to purchase additional equipment and inherit animals, allowing new owners to transition smoothly into their roles as farmers. From the day you step onto the property, you can be a part of the farming community, growing, nurturing, and contributing to the cycle of life.
