Beautiful rolling green hills, pastures thick with grass, and hillsides dotted with mature shade trees exemplify the Tennessee landscapes in Giles County, TN. Picturesque in every season, the area has everything to offer the individual looking for privacy and peacefulness, but who still wants access to all the conveniences we have grown accustomed to. The quaint town of Cornersville sits on the border area between Giles and Marshall Counties and is filled with large-acreage farms, and is home to this 32.76-acre Hobby Farm. Cornersville's close proximity to Interstate 65 and one hour distance from Nashville, Tennessee and Huntsville, Alabama makes this the perfect setting for animal-related business opportunities to flourish.
The current owners originally used this 32.76 acre hobby farm for horse breeding, training, and sales. To ensure safety for foals, mares, stallions, and retirees, over $30,000 of fencing has been installed, separating five different pastures: two front pastures fenced with 3-board wood fencing, a Mare/Foal turn out pasture fenced with no-climb/foal fencing, a Winter pasture lush in grass surrounded in box wire field fencing, and a Stallion double fenced pasture with five-strand, electrified flex fencing. All areas have water pumped to permanent water troughs year-round, and three pastures possess run-in sheds for immediate shelter from the elements. With six 12'x12' wood-lined stalls, the oversized 42'x108' metal barn offers other horse-related business opportunities. Currently, it operates an overnight stabling business with the recently renovated sleeping apartment and full bath in the barn extending a restful area for the driver(s) - or a great place for boarders to gather and socialize before/after a ride. The Front pastures are a perfect place for the animals to stretch their legs, keeping any regular equine residents from going nose-to-nose with the visitors. All six stalls are separated from each other, allowing for secure stallion stabling, and with the stallion turn-out pasture available if needed, this farm offers something not every farm can - a place for the boys to stay, too! Just 4-5 hours from Lexington, KY, this is a great last-stop spot for transporters on their way from Florida via Interstate 65. If you prefer less in-and-out, this set up is great for monthly boarders as well. With over 1500 square feet of hay and equipment storage, stocking up on the needs of a boarding facility is not a problem. Offer your boarders a great place to ride in the fantastic 75'x170' grass arena and 40' round pen - perfect for any type of training, or take a short trail ride through the winter pasture, up hill, through trees, and back down again - great exercise and simply refreshing to the mind and spirit. there is no better place to live if you like to trail ride as the farm is within an easy trailer ride to several great places with hundreds of acres of trails.
This tranquil hobby farm offers many wonderful things for four-legged livestock, big and small. What about for the two-legged ones? Glad you asked. The main residence was built in 1996 and has been well-maintained and lovingly cared for. A ranch style home, it offers zoned bedrooms creating an owner's wing and a guest wing to the house that together surround the main gathering areas of the kitchen, living room, and dining room. Hardwood floors exist throughout the house with tile flooring in the bathrooms and laundry. The master suite has plenty of room for larger bedroom furniture and the bathroom was recently remodeled with tile walls, a new low-flush toilet, countertops and a new smoked glass sink in 2011. Boastful picture windows in the living room view out over the perfect setting of Tennessee's rolling hills and pasture land while fall colors and spring greens can be viewed across the neighboring tree tops from the covered front porch. Solid oak cabinets with updated hardware and slide-out shelving are plentiful in the country kitchen, accented by newer stainless steel appliances - all of which remain with the property. Through a doorway from the kitchen is a separate dining room, currently being used as an office. This multi-purpose room leads from the owner's wing to the guest wing of the home where there are two more nicely-sized bedrooms and an oversized bathroom. Completely private and quiet, the rooms each have their own ceiling fans, large windows and deep closets with plenty of storage space. In late 2010, early 2011, the entire house received new ductwork beneath the house and a new dual-system heating and air conditioning unit. At this time, the sellers installed insulation under the floor boards to better insulate the home and lower utility costs. The north/south facing of the main residence allows for future solar panel installation if you are so inclined to "get off the grid."
Should you require more living space for extended family members, farm employees, or the occasional (or regular) guests, this property provides you with an exceptional one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest cottage or mother-in-law quarters, complete with a full kitchen and laundry hookups. Built in 2007, the cottage was designed for the handicapped with wider doorways and a step-in shower and offers a peaceful place to call home. A covered front porch views out over the front pastures, and a rear entry provides quick access from the graveled parking area. With a large closet in the bedroom, a separate linen closet in the bathroom, a large wall unit in the living room, and solid oak cabinets surrounding the kitchen area there is plenty of storage space to be found. An eat-at bar separates the kitchen from the living room, giving an open and airy feel to the main living area. Plenty of natural light gleams through multiple windows on both the front and rear of the cottage.
Finishing out this amazingly functional farm is a separate, heated and cooled outbuilding, ready to house your hobby. Completely self sustained, having its own electrical meter and propane tank, it offers three main areas that could work for any hobby - cars, wood working, art or photography, textiles, small animal breeding - you decide. Or, it makes an incredible tack room, complete with its own remaining washer and dryer. The heated and air conditioned rooms are great for keeping medicines at room temperature year-round, leather tack from growing mold during the summer months, and drying saddle pads and blankets during the winter months. Outside the building is a great open yard area. Shared with the back of the main house, the area is shaded by mature trees and offers a small building that could be used as large dog kennels, or even a chicken coop. With no restrictions on the land, the possibilities are endless!
This serene farm is a fantastic place to kick up your heels and feel remote, yet it is located within 5-45 minutes from big box shopping, fine dining, and highly-rated hospitals in Columbia, Franklin, and Brentwood, TN to the north, as well as Huntsville, AL to the south.
