Drive through the gate & a very special country setting unfolds. Atop a knoll the rustic main house overlooks the 29 acres with distant mountain views. Adjacent to the house is an office, 1/2 bath, dog kennel room & 4-car garage, above which is 1443' of living space with private entrance. A short distance away is the guest house in a converted barn/stable. Near the edge of the property is a multi-purpose building that includes 2 other apartments. It's a great place to hunt or just go down to the "shooting shack," complete with kitchen & bath, sit on the porch & target shoot. On the hill is the equipment barn/garage. Furnishings are included, as is a Ford Truck, John Deere Tractor, Gator, Back Hoe, Commercial Trailer & other farm equipment. A wide trail around the property is a good place to ride horses. The small pond is spring fed. This can be a great family compound or a commercial venture. The east boundary adjoins 262 acres of state owned, protected land. Floor plans attached.

Originally called Turkey Creek, the Leicester community was founded in 1829 with the establishment of a local post office. Frontiersman Leicester Chapman, an early Postmaster of that office, renamed the area for his own namesake, the Earl of Leicester. Today, the bucolic community is filled with local farms, artisans, and nature lovers who enjoy the quiet mountain views.
