Columbia house description

This newly remodeled cabin hosts an open floor plan with huge windows overlooking the pasture, gardens, and pecan grove. A new modern eclectic kitchen with vintage sink and butcher block counters opens to the main living area capable of supporting festive getaways with friends and family. During the growing season fresh produce will be ready for harvest from the 1/4 acre garden right outside the door. Both bedrooms feature new queen beds with high quality linens for a comfortable rest. Newly remodeled bathroom features a bath/shower combo to accommodate guests needs plus luxurious towels for added comfort. Open loft upstairs off second bedroom allows for extra sleeping arrangements, a place to do yoga, play music or just relax with a book. Outside there is a wrap around deck perfect for grilling, watching the sunrise and stars, wildlife viewing, and all the happenings going on in the gardens. There are hiking trails through the woods, a creek to explore, a fishing pond and during the late winter months maple sugaring adventures to enjoy. We have many projects (and dreams) in the works at Sweet Hills Farm but currently the focus is on an extensive garden project and glade restoration.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are both native Missourians and have called Columbia our home for over 15 years. We recently moved to the 'country' in 2011 to turn our dream of living on land into a reality. This piece of property has proven to be a bounty of surprises and beauty to behold.

                      Why the Owner Chose Columbia:
                      This is not your typical property.
