Closed Price $973,000
Your turn-key mountain retreat awaits! Situated on 8 acres of wooded paradise, this vast property has all the space, serenity, and seclusion you've been looking for. Located in an active community known for its agro-tourism and land conservation efforts. Thoughtfully built using square logs and dovetail corners with select features created from on-site trees. Currently offers lovely seasonal views but should a year-round view be important to you, it can be achieved with just a little tree clearing! The main house layout combined with the separate finished space in the barn dwelling creates copious opportunities for the next owner. This property would function well as an income producing space (bed & breakfast, rental property, detached office/business space/workshop) or makes for a wonderful private residence. The outdoor spaces provided by the double decker covered porch, firepit, gazebo, pond style water feature, chicken coop, playset, and walking trail encourage you to get outside.

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.
