Pictures as promised....first the house

The kitchen area - which is connected to the dining/great room.

A picture of the great room from the top of the stairs.
The cathedral ceiling and loft.

A truly southern home complete with a wrap around porch and swing. French doors that enter into the master bedroom are around the corner. We dreamed of a jacuzzi on that end after the kids were all grown. The view from the master bedroom is beautiful. We left trees right up agains the house on that side.

The barn, chicken coop, and dog runs. Interior of barn and fenced areas sit on concrete. It is wired for electricity, but not connected. Open barn area could easily house 3 or 4 horse stalls.
There is an 8 x 16 loafing shed connecting the back pasture to the side pasture that is wired with lights and an outlet for fans, and the charger for the electric fence.

A view from the front. We have added Forsythia bushes and extended the flower beds. Lots of Irises and Daffodils. I am going to miss springtime in Georgia. There are also azaleas at the top of the yard.

These are pictures from last year. We have made some upgrades since they were taken, and are currently working on some more. If you are interested in a ten acre farmette (about 3 acres fenced) in the country but only minutes to convenience and less than an hour from Atlanta let me know. I wish we could pick it up and move it with us, but we can't. I am trusting that the Lord will send a buyer quickly. I am not relishing the idea of being a single parent. Clay hasn't accepted a job yet, but we are planning in that directon. We have several offers on the table.

What a beautiful property and home! If we weren't so happy here in Christmas, FL, we might consider it. I grew up in snow country (Stockton, NY) and have no desire to live in snow again, but Georgia would not be bad. Your goats are NICE, too! Wish gas prices were more reasonable--we might find a way to add another LaMancha to our family. I know what you mean about the kids growing up...our 3 oldest are now adults--one has chosen to stay on the farm, but one is pre-med at UNF and another probably on his way to culinary school to pursue his dream to be a chef. 6 more at home, but still not the same. I miss them! I wish you well with your move, our prayers will be with you. ---Diane K, Christmas, FL
