I have 14 acres in Southern Ohio where my house burned down last summer.
- lots of sunshine at the homebuild site on top of the property
- private gravel drive
- good neighbors
- additional 5 acres next door likely available for purchase from former owner
- cooperative electric hookup
- county water
- 10 acres of mixed woods: eastern red cedar, black locust, redbud, some very old oaks not suitable for commercial timbering, black walnut, sycamore, buckeye, poplar
- creek with pond and waterfall at bottom of property
- some development funding may be available
- lots of development opportunity
- plenty of rainfall
- no home on site, though neighbors may have room or cabin for rental until one is built
- no cable internet
- ruins of old house need to be cleared
We would have to work out a contract agreement of rental, land transfer, or occupancy and development, depending on what resources you may have available.
I am open to taking compensation for the land in the form of cash, labor on the site, and/or a share of the harvest.
As my family already has a source of income, I would likely reinvest any cash into the development site. My long-term vision is for the site to become a net producer of energy through a combination of solar, wind, and hydroelectric generation.
I'm looking for someone to move to the site, or live nearby and work there, with the intent for them to become, either in the immediate or in the long-term depending on available resources, a full, majority, or partial owner themselves.
I'll be glad to answer more detailed questions on the forum here.
Feel free to express interest in the replies here or send me a purple mooseage.
