Triple Creek Farm is the ideal homesteader or survival property: off the beaten path, yet accessible to good roads; pasture land; wood land; streams; homestead; barns, ponds, garden spots; etc.  Situated at the end of an unpaved county road, you have no drive by traffic.  Only those needing to be there are there.  It has excellent southern exposure thus allowing the efficient operation of a solar powered system if desired.  It truly is a great property for anyone looking to live off the grid, or self-sustainably, or in need of a secure bugout property in the event of catastrophe.  Click here for a short video flyover of the property.

Once you’re on the property, it has one access, or choke point which makes it secure.  Shaped largely like a triangle, it is bound on two sides by substantial streams and on the third by numerous acres of undeveloped, topographically challenging forests of which more than 2,000 acres are owned by the Foothills Conservancy and another 135 acres owned by a conservation owners association.  That means this property is protected from encroachment by future development in the area.

Within the 32 acres you’ll find approximately 10 acres of open pasture and farmland already improved with a sizable fruit orchard, blackberry and blueberry bushes, bee hives and such.  The remainder is thick forestland comprised mostly of hardwoods that provide great habitat for wildlife and wood as a fuel source.  There are no restrictions on the property, so if you’re inclined, you’re free to hunt.  There are two ponds on the property, one of which is stocked.  The house is served by a well, however, there are three streams on the property, two of which are quite substantial and sufficient for water supply for livestock, farming and household use.  Click here for an interactive 3D map.

There is a 43 x 34 foot barn with loft that is ideal for storage of farm equipment, and there is a smaller covered shed large enough for a small farm tractor.  There is even a shooting range with earthen backstop for you to practice your marksmanship.

The one story house features three bedrooms and two full baths plus a bunk room with two bunk beds perfect for the kids.  The interior is finished with wood flooring, bead board interior walls and ceilings, giving the house a classic farm house flair.  There is a large living room with stone fireplace, dining room, breakfast nook and full kitchen.  A large open air deck spans the front of the house while a 26 x 11 screened porch with metal ceiling caps off one end.  The house is in good, ready to move in condition.  Window air conditioners and ceiling fans provide cool air in the warmer months and electric baseboard heat takes care of the winters.  The full kitchen offers a dishwasher, refrigerator and propane gas range.  A new roof was installed in the past few years.

Adjacent to the house is a 26 x 26 double bay garage.  The garage has electricity and two roll up doors.  The interior is lined with all manner of shelving and storage racks.  There are many tools and farm related equipment along with household furnishings that are negotiable.  .
