    That pond is so sad looking. 🙁

      It IS sad! Our whole county (and surrounding areas) are in a horrible drought right now. This spring-fed pond is just one of a handful that still have a little water in them. It’s a lovely pond – it just needs some rain.

    I love this house especially the kitchen! I immediately start fantasizing about what it would be like to live there . . . . sign of a great house!

    Shiplap is beautiful in this house. I love the fireplace in the kitchen and the claw foot bathtub. Really great house.

    Beautiful property but, does the dog really go with the house? That is just so sad. There is nothing to indicate the dog spends any time inside. Sorry, the animal lover in me just got raised up. I hope the house, and the dog, get a loving family soon.

    They’re leaving the dog with the house? The outside kennels and dog bed make me sad!

    It’s not the first time I’ve heard of a dog coming with a house. We don’t know the story about the dog or why he’s staying with the house so let’s reserve judgement about it.

    I would take the dog and the chickens to go with my very venerable old cat and we could all live more happier together. I would even take a few venerable humans and we could all enjoy our lives together. I love it all it is truly my dream home.

  11. I love the house. The property already has a fenced-in pasture, so I could load up my geldings and move right in!

    Unpretentious Southern farmhouse cottage here surrounded by 13.37 acres. Lovely surroundings. For those who also like painted shiplap…its here!

    I liked the soft bed of pine needles in the front yard, but the rest of the house sort of depressed me. Don’t get me wrong, the house is has some fine points, but the green pond and the flat landscape made the house seem so all alone. Maybe horses and different furnishings/colors would make me change my mind.

    All the comments about the dog made me re-read the listing!?! I hope someone is feeding the dog as it seems like the owners are in the process of moving out. Hard to believe that a dog is part of the bargain but I do have a friend who flips houses and he has bought them fully furnished with clothes in the closet and groceries in the fridge. That is a puzzle to me but this is a lovely house and property.

    Maybe the owners can’t take the dog where they are going. When we sold a farm house we were restoring to buy our dream Queen Anne in town on a very busy highway we made the hard decision to leave our dog behind. It seemed cruel to take her from where she had always had acres to run to a postage stamp sized fenced yard. The new owners were thrilled to have her and she was a happy dog.

    I am the listing agent and felt compelled to respond. The owners of the home are deceased. The dog stays on the farm and has free range (this is a rural area – dead end road), along with a handful of chickens. He is a hound dog mix and is well taken care of. The son of the owners spends the night at the house a few times a week. The neighbor also comes over and feeds the dog daily. He is not abandoned. I feel awful that I portrayed the situation as an abandonment. I assure you the dog is healthy and happy. The dog was a great companion to the gentleman of the house and the family feels as though he would be happiest to stay at the farm.
