"Edith's Farm" ~ c. 1870 ~ 19+ Acres ~ Dymer Creek

Productive farm just outside the Town of Kilmarnock with water frontage on Simmons Pond and the headwaters of Dymer Creek. Fine for kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, or fishing with a John boat. There is no water view from the farm house, but there is a nice homesite on the creek. The 1870's farmhouse is set back from the road for nice privacy, and has a lovely tree-lined driveway. The spacious yard is shaded by mature trees, including pecans and apple trees. Approximately 13 acres is under cultivation as cropland and generates $599.00/year in rental income.

The farmhouse enjoys a new heat pump for central HVAC, plus a cozy wood stove in the more recently added Family Room. The large Country Kitchen has white-tile countertops, wall oven, and electric cooktop with range hood, and a pass-through to the Family Room. A formal Dining Room, Living Room, Foyer and Utility Room complete the first floor. The upstairs has four bedrooms and 2 full baths, and most of the bedrooms have their own vanities ensuite. The floors have wall-to-carpet, and the walls are panelled.

A detached building offers an enclosed workshop, a covered carport with concrete pad, and an open equipment shed. The workshop has upper level storage. Both an artesian well and a shallow well (good for gardening) are on the property. There is an old road that leads down to the waterfront where there is 419' of frontage along Simmons Pond (no access, but pretty views) and 394' of frontage along Dymer Creek. There is a dam across the head of the creek forming a freshwater pond, which is owned by the property across the creek. Great location for a home business or a Pick-Your-Own farm! Plenty of room for horses!
