This 80 acre farm located at 4921 Co. Rd. 72, Spencerville, IN, just in the edge of DeKalb County, would lend itself well to a general grain and livestock farm, with both productive cropland and gently rolling hay and pasture land. The 5 bedroom, 2 story home sits on a full basement with 2 kitchens (1 in basement) and 3 full baths. (All appliances stay in home.) There is a fireplace in the basement and an attached 2-car garage. This home is approx. 41 years old and is very sound. The basement is dry and no sump pump was ever needed. Front lawn is shaded by mature maples around the home.
There is a red barn, 37 ft. x 60 ft., with a complete concrete floor. It has both water & electric, and is square & sound with a good roof. Cosmetics is all that is needed in the way of doors and paint to put it back in tip-top shape. A 40 ft. x 80 ft. x 12 ft. eve tool shed with earthen floor exists for equipment & other storage.

Great deer hunting! Because of the surrounding woods and the natural travel corridors with water available all you have to do is sit in one of the fence rows and wait, and the deer will walk right past you. I know for a fact! 3 different years I have hunted this farm and have taken 2 does and an 8-point buck from the same spot.

Tract 1: 6.7 ac 2 acre mixed hay field west of the long drive and is about 1/3 covered in large mature trees. Beautiful hill top setting. Note: The grain bin and dryer is owned by Steve Watson and will not sell with the farm.
Tract 2: 73.3 ac or the balance of this farm varies greatly from highly productive Blount silt loam on a flat 1-4% slope, representing about 1/3 of the farm soil type. Morley, Glynwood loam, Wallkill silt loam, & Pewamo silty clay make up the other 2/3 of the soils. Weighted average for yields are shown on the surety soils map. Approx. 3 acres of woodland is located at the southeast corner of the farm. Approx. 1.75 acres pond area is located south of the far north field west of the farm lane, great for livestock or wildlife watering.
Please Note: If the tracts sell separately, a permanent deeded easement will be given to the buyer of Tract #2 for ingress and egress the farm using existing farm driveway and lane through the woods for agricultural purposes.
