Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Almost 5 acres, this beautiful estate hosts a home, spacious grounds, and outbuildings. The home is a 4/5 bed/1 updated full bath, 2 half baths (1 upstairs, 1 downstairs) plus a massive combo dining room and living room, large family room with fireplace (TV over fireplace stays!), kitchen has lots of cabinet and counter space and eat-in area. Sliding glass doors lead to rear patio that will provide a serene view of the north side of the property. From the front entry, your guests will be welcomed into a foyer that's adjacent to the kitchen and the DR/LR combo. The main floor provides the kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, and a half bath. The family room has a wood burning fireplace and there's wood storage at the fireplace, too. There are two staircases to go upstairs and two staircases to gain access to the basement as well. The staircase leading from the kitchen to upstairs will take you to the upstairs half bath with the laundry room area, the updated full bath, along with the 4/5 bedrooms. The master/larger bedroom has an adjacent space that is a 5th bedroom with closet or an office space or nursery. There's also an access from the second floor to the large/open attic space or optional third floor space. It isn't finished but could become a phenomenal office or kid's play space! The basement offers even more space with extra deep block foundation, sprayed foam insulation walls, and this space houses the mechanicals for the home including an incredible $20K GeoThermal system (approximately 5 years old). Ultra nice and so incredibly efficient in costs! The attached 2 1/2-car PLUS garage also has a separate furnace & stairs to basement and has new roof in Aug 2020. The upstairs also has a supplemental furnace/AC system only to provide better sleeping temperatures without changing the temp for the entire home. The entire property is on natural gas, private wells, and private septic. Only the detached 1+ car garage/workshop is on propane for heat. There's also a machine shed behind the workshop for storing old cars, equipment, projects in process, etc. The 40' x 120' chicken barn is perfect for - well, chickens, goats, storage, you name it! There is electrical to this area as well. Lots of mature trees to provide shade while still offering large open spaces for playing, 3-wheeling, and more! The well pressure tank was new in 2013, well pump new in 2019. Roof is a 30 year roof and was put on in 2007 and garage roof was completed in 2021. You get an incredible investment with this property! There's remarkable potential here. Endless possibilities!
