Every now and then a rural oasis in the ND prairie hits the market and this is one of them. Located on the banks of the Maple River only 10 miles south of Casselton and an easy 25-minute commute from Fargo you will find this meticulously well-maintained farmstead. The property boasts a 4 bed 1 bath colonial style home with a 2 stall detached garage. The 2070 finished sq ft are well laid out and feature many original wood finishes. The main floor features an open concept dining and living room with a family room off the kitchen. The grand staircase leads to the second level with 4 beds and a full bath. There is an unfinished 900 sq ft attic that could be turned into a master suite or large man cave. The basement is where the laundry is located and has a ton of storage along with the potential to finish off another bathroom. Outside you will find a large covered front porch with a water feature off the west side of the house. The front porch was recently renovated with no maintenance TimberTec decking.
The outbuildings consist of large well cared for barn that could be used for housing livestock or hosting weddings and everything in between. The current owners have the loft set as a chapel and it holds up to 120 people. That loft could be used for barn dances, services, weddings, and other events that could make supplemental income. The barn also features several stalls for horses, a game cleaning station with water and stainless steel bench, and 220 electric hookup for welding. The steel roof on the barn and fresh paint make this a true gem on the farm. There is also a good-sized pole barn with corral and electric and is being used for storage and as a shop with a workbench. The old granary on the backside of the property is set up for more storage and also used as a hunting tower with a food plot right outside and a window overlooking the property and river bottom.
The land and hunting are what gets me excited about this property, situated on an oxbow with river bottom on both the west and east side of the property it creates a natural funnel that all wildlife traveling the river will travel through. The game in the area is plentiful and several trophy bucks have been taken off the property in recent years with many nice ones on camera. There is also a ton of waterfowl that come through the area and use the river and croplands around the premises. The wood duck hunting on the river is outstanding along with the pheasant hunting in the thick native grasses along the river bottom. The trail system through the property makes getting around easy and on the backside of the property you will find an apple orchard that is bursting at the seams. The trees were loaded and I can only imagine what the apple pie will be like this fall. About halfway back from the barn to the orchard, you will find an artesian well that runs year-round and provides ample water for the wildlife and would be good for livestock. The water has been tested on this well and is suitable for human consumption. The ability to run horses, hunt right out your back door, have undisturbed privacy and to possibly make income off the property are truly what sets this one apart from the rest. There is much more that I could mention and would love to talk with you more about this great southeast ND property. Call today.
