After living with a 150 year old historic house in Pike County…I appreciate the maintenance-free exterior of this one.  Large pool and an enormous hot tub!

The farm also has a historic barn with a stables in the lower level. Bank owned and priced to sell!  100 acre option….$1,300,000   480 acre option $2,395,000

McIlroy Farm- For Sale 25795 Pike 244, Clarksville, MO 63336

A couple weekend ago I had the treat of visiting this wonderful farmhouse. It has perfect views of the rolling hills of Pike County. The farm is only on 7 acres, so it is manageable for a gentleman or woman farmer. The neighboring landowner may even sell you some land if you are interested. The house gracious and grand. The best news is that it is in very good shape with some new systems in place. Of course there is some work to do….though that is what makes owning a country place fun….projects! If I did not have our Pike County farm already….I would be running to buy this one. $274,900
