Wild life abounds on this end of the farm. A pair of eagles nest 1/4 mile away. Sightings are fairly common until February at nesting time and on thru the summer when several daily sightings can be expected. Deer are in the fields morning and evening. Coyotes are seen often in the fields below the house hunting mice. Bird watching in pretty interesting as the hawks also hunt the fields. Since we are at the very end of Martin Ridge it feels like you are almost in the sky at night. With no interference from artificial lighting star gazing is pretty unbelievable. As you stare at the vastness of the night sky it is pretty well a guarantee that you will be serenated with the night sounds if owls and coyotes. Don't forget your binoculars and zoom lenses. If you are somewhat of a nature lover you will surly fall in love with Martin Ridge.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We were born and raised right here in Perry county. I was raised on a dairy farm and my husband, Phil was raised on a hog farm. We purchased this farm in 1972 and have lived here ever since. We raised 4 children here. My Great-Great-Great Grandfather, Mason Carter came to Perry County in 1813 from Kentucky. Phil's Great-Great-Great Grandfather, Jules Etienne came here from Florenville, Belguim in 1850. Perry County has been our family home for generations. We have made our livings on the land as farmers and woodsmen. We have a deep love for this area and an equally deep dedication to the natural resources that sustain rural life and provide such a unique atmosphere.
Why the Owner Chose Derby, IN, USA:
Our son Robin built this home in 2002 with the intention of raising his family on his boyhood farm. Opportunity called them elsewhere and we bought his home. We have visitors here often to paint or just admire the view. It seemed like a no brainer to freshen the house up a little and use it as a guesthouse. Located in Perry county we have the same hilly landscape as Brown County but not the crowds.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the unbelievable view if you have never experienced the utter joy of living high above the rest of the world on the very end of a ridge, with the only light at night from the sky and the only sounds coming from nature and you are in for a treat. If you are familiar with scenic Brown County you will fall in love with Perry County. The same beautiful landscape less the crowds plus the Ohio River.
