This property in Webbville is a true gem waiting to be polished! Situated across from Yatesville Lake State Park, this historic house, constructed in 1927, sits on 27.50 acres of land in Kentucky. Boasting a charming covered front porch, original hardwood floors, and unpainted wood trim, this home exudes character. With multiple outbuildings on the expansive property, including a 14-stall barn with a full attic, smokehouses, a woodshed, a homemade cabin, and a chicken coop, the homestead offers a glimpse into the past.
Originally built in the 1920s, this piece of history has remained within the same family for nearly a century. Although the property reflects signs of its former glory, it requires significant repairs and restoration for all structures. The spacious house, with three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,892 square feet, is a testament to its bygone era. The 14-stall barn, complete with a curing attic for Burley tobacco, stands as a reminder of the property’s agricultural heritage.
Nestled in a hollow but visible from the road, the land is a homesteader’s dream. A small active creek runs alongside the barn, providing fresh water for the family mules, cows, hogs, and chickens. All buildings, including the smokehouses and chicken coop, were meticulously hand-built in the early to mid-20th century, adding to the historical charm.
Priced at $135,000, this property offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of history. Contact Gary W. Lambdin with Homeland Real Estate at 606-691-0978 for more information. The proximity to Yatesville Lake State Park, with a boat access just up the road, enhances the appeal of this must-see property. Don’t miss your chance to own a slice of the past!
