A farmette listed for sale by the owner is one of the nicest looking properties I have seen in quite some time.

When a place is 140-years-old you're certainly pushing your luck but with this place, located about an hour from Rockford, it's all good.

Located in Brooklyn, Wisconsin this, 1,575 square foot, three-bedroom 1 bath farmette sits on 5.5 acres of land.

Zillow:

The house is charming but in need of a new roof. The real showstopper of this property is the barn. Great for events, small business, organic farm, horses and small animals.

If you've been considering trading in the city for country life, you could do way worse than this place. Sure it needs a roof, but that barn is something else.

I never thought I was a "barn guy" if there is such a thing, but man, that barn really is something else. If only I had some idea of what I could do with a space like that.

The home has been listed on Zillow since September of 2020, so a competitive offer might just land you the place.

Interested parties should reach out to Heidi at 608.882.6369 for a showing.
