The Lucky Kentucky Farm is 250 acres with 2 houses. The big house an 8-bedroom, 3 bath, 3,000 sf house, with living room, family room, dining room, office, a huge kitchen w/stainless steel appliances and island, two stoves and ovens and breakfast nook, a fireplace in family room. The 2nd house approx. 40 feet from the big house is a 450 sq ft. house with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with an open floor plan kitchen and living room. Both houses have freshly painted walls. Carpet in all the bedrooms upstairs and downstairs. The remainder of the house is hardwood floors, a large utility room with cupboards and refrigerator and coat racks, two central heating and air units, in the big house and central air in the smaller house with a fireplace in the big house and a woodburning stove in the smaller house. There is a ventilated room attached to the smaller house for a generator and a ventilated trash room to keep animals out of the trash until trash pickup day. There is a 5-foot wooden fence in front of the house with two gates with gravel wrap-around driveway that is semi-truck accessible. Well water with a new water purification and filtration system and reservoir in the well house, two wells on the property–a 13 ft. well in the pasture with a well house built around it and a new pump. This well has been providing water nonstop for literally centuries and has never run out of water., and a newer 160 ft. well for the house.
There are miles of large trails throughout the property that are about 6-8 ft wide for a truck, ATV, or horses. Wonderful ground for growing crops, raising cattle, horses, goats, chickens, etc.
There are two large barns. One is a 40×100 block barn with two large sliding doors (one on each side) along with a standard door on the back side. This barn comfortably housed 130 goats with room for more. This block barn has a smaller loft with 3 stalls and a huge open area. It has an attached barn built on to the block barn with another large loft and stalls and chicken coop. It has water and electricity.. The other barn is 40×30 and is made out of wood. It has two large lofts and stalls with a large open area. Attached to this barn is a large chicken coop. Also attached is a turkey pen where we had 10 turkeys. This barn also has electricity and water and it is near the creek and pond, so water is very accessible.
The roofs are all in excellent condition. The plumbing and electrical is up to date. There are 40 acres completely cleared and cross-fenced with goat fencing and another 100 acres was a strip mine that has overgrown, but is partially cleared, for pasture land.
It has two ponds. One is a 3 acre pond up the hill behind the house that is fed by an underground spring. The deep part is 30 ft. deep. The pond was stocked 7 years ago with large and small mouth bass, blue gill, perch, catfish, and crappie. The other pond is smaller and in the wet months is 15 ft. deep. We built steps up the hill to the large pond. We have 2 underground spring-fed creeks that run throughout the property. The bigger creek was just completely restored by the Fish and Wildlife Department of which they maintain but there is an easement on the creek in the field. It separates the front pasture into three pastures that are cross fenced. This creek runs year-round. The smaller creek that runs alongside the house runs most of the year. And in the wooded areas, there are other creeks.
We have a complete orchard with about 15 fruit trees that were planted about 3 years ago (apple trees, peach trees, pear trees, and nectarine trees, along with 30 grapevines (4 different types of grapes) on trellises. There are four fruit trees around the house.
It is very beautiful, peaceful, and serene. The house is on a street that has only 4 houses on it. The neighbors are about ¾ of a mile away and they are very good neighbors. There are 2 hundred acres of wooded forest with lots of wildlife (deer, rabbit, turkey, raccoons, etc.). Most of the property boundaries are fenced.
The property has natural gas that has not yet been mined. A great property for hunting and for ginseng; ginseng gathered two years in a row. There are a couple of old civil war age chimneys from cabins long ago deep in the woods.
We had 100 Boer goats, 20 fainting goats, and 10 milk goats, 3 Jersey cows with two babies, 6 Texas longhorns, 3 mixed breed cows raised for meat, 8 horses, 100 chickens, 10 turkeys, 17 ducks, 2 guard dogs, and three other dogs. There was still room for much more.
