Are you interested in living in your own country farmhouse on 10 acres overlooking a beautiful lake and finishing the farmhouse as a partial seasonal hunting lodge, Inn or Airbnb on the side as a business? A very nice town is only 12 miles away in Harvey, ND with a hospital, movie theater, and lots of small-town businesses. This area is our favorite area in North Dakota with lots of ponds and wildlife.
This is for someone that loves old but functional farmhouses and barns and wants to live in the country, but close to town. The property is 63 miles southeast of Minot, ND and 93 miles northeast of Bismarck, ND. Since 2014, it has been used as a rental with 4 bedrooms.
The 2X6 framed 3 level 1915 farmhouse was moved from 34 miles away and placed on a new walk-out basement facing west. We placed it on the property angling the house so that we could see the lake as well as the farmyard where our kids could be watched at all times and guests would enjoy the views. So, why did we want so many levels and put so much money into this project? It was built for travelers in mind. We even built a walk-out basement for more rooms with the idea of housing lots of people. One main section of the attic is tall enough to stand up in and dormers were going to be put in to enlarge the attic and give the most amazing views of the whole area. Bunk beds were going to go in there as well as a nice sitting area. My office space was going to be up there too with the best view.
It’s only 7 miles directly north of 33,000 acre Lonetree Wildlife Management Area.
