160 Years Ago There was this Land..In 1857 this sellers great-great grandparents bought this 27 acre parcel of land located 3 minutes from downtown Stanley, and 30 minutes from downtown Charlotte. Property is 1.5 miles from hospital, grocery stores, and a great steak restaurant. These pioneers farmed it and later in the 1960s sold it to a non-family member. In 2006 the original owners great-great grandson bought it back and restored it to its current condition. The land has open pastures, wooded areas, a creek, small pond, and sits far back from the country lane which dead ends further down the road. Far out by this lane, are 4 building lots which could be sold if the new owners chose this option. There is approximately 1200 of road frontage.The options here are unlimited. The renovated brick ranch has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath on main level, and in the basement is an in-law apartment with mini-kitchen, a full bath, hookup for washer/dryer and wide open expanse which could easily become 2-3 rooms. It also has a garage door and porch area to sit outside and watch the turkeys, white tail deer, and other animals peacefully pass.The bunk house or guest mobile home has a full front metal awning and concrete porch and is fully furnished and ready for guests or caretakers. There is a Taj Mahal run-in-shed which any horse would feel honored to spend time in. Run-in has sconces, water, hunter fans, windows, feeders and two horses who the owner hopes will remain with the farm along with their rescued barn cat who calls the property her home.The garden cottage reminds this writer of a Tiny House with tilt-in windows, a wine/root cellar, hot water heater, insulation, sink, counters, 5 crown molding, drawers, cabinets and recessed lights.The seller hopes the next owners of this historic farm and land will enjoy the property, peacefulness and serenity as much as his family has over the years.
