This 4200 square foot ranch style home has 4 bedrooms, two full baths, 3 half baths, two fireplaces and is situated on 67-acres located 10 miles north of downtown Battle Creek. The property is arguably one of the crowned jewels of Southwest Michigan. The home, property and outbuildings have been immaculately maintained over the years.
The topography ranges from level to rolling with 10-acres of prairie grasses, wildflowers, three ponds, meandering stream, beautiful rolling white oak hard woods and towering sections of white and red pines as well as Tamaracks. Dogwoods are also present in some areas. One pond is fed by an aquifer and flows year-round over a waterfall into Crooked Creek. The second pond surrounds an island that is connected to the rest of the property with a 10-ton rated professionally engineered bridge. The third pond is shallow and is home to nesting sandhill cranes, geese and ducks.
The home was added onto in 1996 and several remodels have been performed in recent years including the main floor kitchen with rustic hickory cabinetry, quartz countertops, new appliances, two large boulder retaining walls, above ground pool, extensive Azek decking, stamped concrete patio surrounding the lower level walkout with a pergola and replacement of the garage doors on all of the outbuildings.
Additional infrastructure includes a new high efficient boiler furnace & hot water storage tank, 200 amp electrical service, 22kw whole house backup Generac generator with automatic transfer switch, 150 head underground sprinkler system and two wells, (one for the house and one for the irrigation system), high output LED lighted driveway for the 350′ concrete driveway, and a decorative motorized driveway entrance gate. Natural gas was brought into the property 4 years ago.
There is a second gated driveway that services the outbuildings. There is abundant storage onsite, the outbuildings include a 2-story 34×60 horse barn with 9 horse stalls, tack room and hayloft, a 25×37 two story small animal barn with four stalls, a 38×56 drive-thru pole barn with 4 overhead doors (two 10×10 & two 12×14. a 26×44 workshop with a 2 stall garage, a 25×50 four stall pole barn and two additional storage sheds. All sectional overhead doors on the property have electric door operators.
This property is absolutely incredible and would be a perfect setup for anyone that enjoys privacy, deer & turkey hunting, equestrian or farm animals and waterfowl hunting. The fenced in yard is approximately three acres and a trail system around the entire property is already in place.
