Once upon a time there were lots of beautiful sprawling horse farms in South Forsyth. Happy places where kids of all ages and stages ran, played, built forts, and fished in the creeks they backed up to. Places where they felt safe and rode bikes, and scooters in the quiet streets where they were located, and equestrians kept their gorgeous horses right on their own property in their own barns. Many times the owners made a second income boarding others' horses. Sadly, most of those equestrian estates are gone now. But... Here is your opportunity to have all of that in a one-of-a-kind property in Southwest Forsyth -This Is It! A step back into those gentler days. Here find 7.2 acres of pristine fenced and gated land ending at a creek with that offers fun fishing, 2 residences, a barn, riding ring,pasture land for horses. It is around the corner from the brand new middle school and is in the top brand new elementary school! The Main property has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a large Kitchen with built in pantry shelving, plus extra storage in mud area, big laundry room, huge breakfast room and great room, an office/study and an extensive deck running the back of the home, an unfinished basement and a 2 car garage. It overlooks the beautiful tranquil property. Now, Can you find a newer home? Sure. And you can be just like everyone else. Can you find a better lifestyle and still be close to everything and in the top West Forsyth Schools? Not so sure. Are you craving peace after a long workday? or maybe you are working from home and looking for space to stretch out or multiple work areas? This is the Perfect Place! Just don't forget the horses! The unfinished basement in the main residence offers potential additional living space that is stubbed for another bath. The third masonry fireplace- this one set up for a stove is found here. Step outside and you will find a second 3 car garage with an apartment above that is in meticulous condition and could serve as a caretaker's suite, a rental property, your in-laws residence, or maybe an older teen's hang out. Who knows you may need it for your adult children when they visit ( or return home), or it is perfect for simply wowing visiting guests. You are in the heart of horse country in this area and this property comes complete with a Large barn with Stalls for boarding, tackroom and wash room - another potential income producer. Also included is a large riding ring. The main residence is 4 sides Brick and that means very low maintenance. This home was built solidly and has been freshly painted inside and out. It is Not in an HOA so you have plenty of opportunities to make this your own slice of heaven! This is how Forsyth used to be and it is hard to find it like this anymore. Close to all that the area has to offer, yet away from all that the area has to offer. This is your investment in a lifestyle to share and enjoy with those you love and that down to them. It also could have other homes built on it - sigh.
