Come and see this private home; a renovated retreat space built around a very well-maintained, hand-hewn, authentic antique-log cabin in the woods. Originally constructed in the 1800s, the cabin was moved from Spencer, IN in 1986 to where it is now: sitting high on a V-shaped ridge between two converging ravines, overlooking the pond. All this is within 15 minutes of the Indiana University campus, yet still well away from the hustle and bustle. The home is clean, with all hardwood, and tile flooring throughout. Clean drinking water flows from a Culligan reverse-osmosis water filtration system in the spacious kitchen, featuring a warm and woodsy vaulted tongue-and-groove oak ceiling . With it's thick walls, exposed beams, and rustic charm, the main level living area features, as a centerpiece, a charming full-sized wood-burning fireplace with a Brown County stone hearth. Firewood is plentiful on over three, mostly-wooded, acres. A great place to cookout, generous wrap-around decking surrounds the house on three sides, and a fifty-plus-foot bridge, added in 2016, leads to a small, pond-side firepit area. The circular driveway makes getting in and out practical, and the additional gravel parking works well for boats and extra vehicles. The detached insulated garage was built in 2017, and includes roof pulleys for two kayaks. Lake Monroe, and Pine Grove Boat Ramp, are just at the end of the lane. Like to have fun in, and around, the water? The sandy beaches, boat and jet ski rentals, and pretty picnic spots, of Paynetown State Recreation Area are also only minutes away. What about conveniences? Fuel, bait, and a convenience store are all available at the nearby Fishin' Shed. Don't feel like cooking? Scenic View Restaurant, Trailhead Pizzeria, and The Cabin Restaurant & Lounge are all also easily accessed within a couple of miles of the property. Like hiking? Love nature? Picturesque views of beautiful Lake Monroe are easily enjoyed from the nearby Sycamore Land Trust's lovely, Amy Weingartner Branigin Peninsula Preserve's public trails and beaches. Come enjoy the fresh air, and relax in the quietude of this peaceful wooded sanctuary. A one-of-a-kind place!
