This is a dream come true!! Love horses? Have you always dreamed of owning a hobby or working farm? Maybe you just want to live life like Rip and Beth on Yellowstone? Or maybe you are tired of the rat race and are ready for a new chapter? This 49-acre farm is only 13 miles from downtown Marquette in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Country life with close to town conveniences. The farm is currently an active working farm and has been for almost 25 years. Skandia has long been a farming community and this home is across the road and in between Devooght’s General Store and the Skandia Farmer’s Market location. The farmer’s market runs May through October and brings the community together right down the road. Are you intrigued? This property boasts a 30+/- acre hayfield that turns at least two crops a year, sometimes three, wooded acreage filled with hardwoods (including Maples that are just waiting to be tapped) and over 1,000 feet of riverfront on both sides of the Chocolay river! The Chocolay River has excellent fishing for a variety of species as well as size and depth for kayaking. The three bed, 1 bath home sits high above the river making for beautiful sunset views over the river in the evening. The home was built in 1999, 2x6 construction, and had an addition put on in 2014 and many recent updates including a brand-new forced air furnace in 2022. Highlights include vaulted ceilings, French doors to the front porch, deck off the side overlooking the river, hickory cabinetry, wood stove in the living room for toasty winter evenings, finished walk out lower level, and low maintenance vinyl siding and metal roof. There are five outbuildings, including an amazing indoor riding arena with mall gallery above and hayloft. The arena provides three wings of horse aisles radiating from the center with 19 horse stalls in total (all clay and matted), two aisles are cement, one 6 stall wing is insulated and with heat lamps can stay at 50... continued on addendum
