This unique cabin built with hand hewn oak and poplar old-growth logs originally harvested in the 1840’s, sits above Indian-Kentuck Creek on 39.16 acres outside historic Madison, Indiana. Custom built from a “dog trot” log cabin and a stick-built frame addition, this 4280’sq. house can serve as a home, retreat, vacation home or secluded remote work/school office.
Nature lovers, birders and hunters will enjoy watching wild life from 1400 square feet of covered porch. Famous for white tailed Deer, SE Indiana has wild turkey eagles, river otters, beavers, bobcats, coyotes and many hawks and owls. The grounds of this property include a horse barn with a workshop and an outdoor wood-stove heated sauna and garden shed. The house sits on a wooded hill looking over 6.7 tillable acres in hay, a half-acre original orchard yard and Indian Kentuck Creek.
Enjoy quiet seclusion at this farm just 11 miles from historic Madison Indiana and an hour from Louisville, Kentucky to the southwest and Cincinnati, Ohio to the northeast. Madison, an Indiana “Stellar Community”, has 130 blocks of National Historic Landmark district reflecting beautifully preserved architecture spanning the Federal style of 1817 to WPA built Crystal Beach Pool from 1939 and every style between. Enjoy rural, small-town life just an hour from all the amenities of urban life.
