Within a short drive of Louisville, the Sillings-Schoen-Mitsch farm offers the best of both worlds: a serene rural setting and the nearby amenities of a large urban center. Located just outside Georgetown in Floyd County, the farm is currently for sale by Indiana Landmarks.
Tucked into the hilly terrain of southern Indiana, the historic Sillings-Schoen-Mitsch farm includes nearly 160 acres of prime real estate with easy access to I-64, just 15 minutes from downtown Louisville. Built on land that originally belonged to some of the area’s earliest settlers, the property includes a 1910s bungalow farmhouse, with three barns, a tenant house, and a few outbuildings.
The bungalow features 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and retains oak woodwork, maple floors, and two sets of working pocket doors. Both the bungalow and tenant house will require extensive rehab, but offer potential as a Airbnb, studio, or retreat. Indiana Landmarks has installed new roofs on the house and barns.
The property will be sold subject to a preservation and conservation easement, which will require preservation of the two existing houses, several barns and other outbuildings and a family cemetery. Three barns (largest is 56 x 40), have been rehabbed. Seller intends to allow construction of one new home and appropriate outbuildings, subject to design approval, although seller is willing to consider any proposal that would preserve the agrarian character of the property.
