Bedlam Farm, make it YOURS

Bedlam Farm is for sale, the home of author Jon Katz and Maria Wulf. It includes a beautifully restored Greek revival farmhouse with wood stoves and a screened porch. Outside are 92 acres, perfectly restored and painted red barns and outbuilding, including an artist's studio with another wood stove. It all looks over the Black Creek valley, an AMAZING VIEW, and it just reduced below $400,000. This seems like a steal if you can make it happen. If I could swing it, I know I would.

Too bad you can't get together with a small group of like minded folks and buy it!

Oh man, I am not the community-living type. I would drive everyone nuts and end up sulking in my room writing. But for a young couple, or a series of young coupls, 92 acres is a hell of a start! you could did it all!

Wow- my daughter-in-law would love it, but she can't have it. It's on the wrong coast. My Grandchildren need to stay here.

Sigh, totally out of the budget. We'll get there somehow. I agree with you about the community living thing. The only person I can trust to live with me and not to strangle me is someone who loves me so much she stood up in church and promised to put up with me forever. :)

Attempting to convince husband to immediately seek a professor gig in upstate New York. This is my absolute dream house and at 400K that's a steal. That's what we were looking to pay for a parcel of land (9 acres) in Maryland. Where are the Katz's heading?

That seems so cheap. You can't even by a dump of a house on 1/2 an acre for that price here! Jacinta

That place would be a dream come true! But it is way more than I can afford! I better start playing the lottery! Ha! A girl can dream though!

Makes me want to move back home! If we had the money, we'd snatch it up in a heartbeat!

I'm curious what the real estate taxes are. In my area, $400K barely buys a 4 bedroom house on an acre, and the taxes usually end up being $8000 a year. I'd LOVE to have his farm!

Alefellow is buying us lotto tickets over his lunch break. *sigh* You have to manage a farm for 3 years to qualify for the beginning farmer usda loans, right? That is a good deal though... our lawyer friend who's looking for land said he'd be down to invest, but not for 5 years till he's ready to retire unless it were nearby. That's gorgeous though. Hills and trees and acres and acres, and we have friends and family not too far away... ah. But I make a poverty-line farmer wage and am paying student loans (almost 2/3rds done three years out of school on no money is not bad!), and the Fellow's job is here... know any openings for a GIS-specialist in the area? And a good farm loan agent who would deal with rookies?
