The house is large, with a FULL basement. A basement of that size would cost around $60K just for the basement. NOT wired for electricity (Amish built, remember?)
And of course the 45 acres would be worth around $90K or so. A large pond stocked with fish.
Plus there is a HUGE barn -- ground floor with stalls for the horses and a place for cows or a bull, and a loft which looks like they used it for word-working. Roughly 3,000 sq feet on each floor.
Plus a large SILO. And what Lezlee calls a "carriage house" with cement floor, two stories, south-facing for solar applications.
Long driveway gives seclusion. Amish neighbors, mostly. Used to living off-grid...
Jamesport is a mostly Amish community roughly 10 miles from AOA, with Amish stores -- lots of fun.

There is also an old church for sale in Gilman City MO (farming town of about 300 folks), about 12 miles from AOA... only $10K -- and I'll actually consider paying half if someone want to go in on it with me.
I've seen them both. Existing blgs/farms are SO Inexpensive now near AOA!!

What are the advantages/disadvantages of W vs. E? As to town or country? The small towns are appealing, and it sounds like country living is what is being looked for. They are just looking to be where the Lord would have them be and I'm helping them do their homework in finding some property. I'm confident if I make a Sanpete comparison it would give you a good notion what is being looked for. A place like Spring City or the outer Manti area would be comparable.DrJones wrote:ah, Missouri!
Do you want to live in town, or more out in the country?
Do you want to live on the Gallatin ward side (east of I-15), or west on the Albany Branch side?
I know more about the west side; this is where we live.
