Farm For Sale

Great 40 minute drive to Omaha or Lincoln on wonderful highways, 8 miles west of Nebraska City just off Highway 2 and on black top road.

The original portions of this historic home were built in 1880.  A few years later the original two rooms were enclosed in a huge remodel addition.  The kitchen area was added shortly after that.  The outside of the house measures a square footage of approx 2660 square feet.  The front porch is 10 ft wide and runs the length of the house.

The roof on the house was reshingled in 2014 with 30 year high wind rated shingles. New seamless gutters were added to the lower levels.  The upper level gutters were inspected when the roof was replaced and found to be in excellent condition.

Basement is partial with approx 600 square feet of wonderful storage and supports the furnace and hot water heater.  There is a sump pump but we rarely hear it run.  There is a sink in the basement but we have never used it.  The drain for it goes to a sump pump. There is also a floor drain in the basement floor that drains to the sump pump.  We don't know where the water in the sump pump goes.  There is a stairway to the basement in the house and an additional stairway out of the basement that is closed outside with a new metal door system.  

Foundations are good with no apparent bowing. Other than the partial basement the house sits on crawl space.

Furnace is approx 10 years old.  We just had the furnace and air conditioner inspected and serviced 9/15 and it passed inspection with flying colors.  Hot water heater is at least 6 years old.  We had to run new gas line fittings in 2014 when all the fittings began to leak.

Rural Water, Natural Gas and 8 yr old septic system.  Gas & Electric combined ran $227 a month for the previous 12 months from June 2015.  Nov 2014 we insulated the lower level walls for the bathroom and added extra insulation in the attic.  In July 2015 we insulated the walls in the kitchen and pantry during that remodel. This means that the Gas & Electric should drop for the future billings and has been running dramatically lower than previous years.   Rural water runs about $30 a month unless you do a lot of watering in the garden or watering of animals.  Then it runs more.

The land includes 10.01 acres + or - . The land alone is valued at $80,000.  The homestead sits on 5 acres and there is a 5 acre pasture that has been cut regularly for hay.  We got 15 big round bales of hay from it in 2015.  The land was surveyed in 2008 and corner posts were set immediately in the location of the flags.  We have used NO CHEMICAL SPRAYS on the property other than the drive-way and parking in the last 7 years.

A huge amount of landscaping has been done with additions of various food crops including: Red and Black Raspberry, Blackberry, Echinea, Daylilies, Asparagus, Gooseberry, multiple herbs, Strawberries, Rhubarb, grapes, Aronia and Fruit Trees (Apple, Pear, Apricot, Peach, Cherry), huge vegetable raised bed area.  A hedge row of Lilacs are along the frontage of the property with Peony and Iris Plants.  Thousands of Daylilies blanket the property.  Forsythia has been planet inside the picket fence.

Out buildings include a newly painted chicken shed on concrete base (on the left below) with enclosed run and would house 20-30 hens.  This building has newer steel roof.

The 3+ stall garage
Garage on the left is covered with steel siding and has a 2 yr old steel roof and concrete floors.  The large garage door has a working opener.  The building on the left is a converted corncrib with dirt floors would make a great shop.  It needs a roof.

Livestock Buildings

The for building is newly painted and  has a new steel roof and 3 birthing pens, a loafing pen and a milking area which was formerly used for dairy Goats.  The floors are concrete.  The huge, old, historic barn with unique construction is amazing.  Features 8 stalls in the front, a center area with tractor size door and a side area with door on each side.  It has a grey steel roof of unknown age and in excellent condition.
