We have bought the 6.54 acres in Hannibal. It is loaded with maple trees, poplar and quaking aspen trees, pine trees, and unfortunately a very rambling thorny wild rose. But bit by bit we think we can get rid of that. It is a level lot, it already has a septic system, electrical pole and hook up to public water; I am glad not to have to rely on a well. It is very lovely; sunny spots, shady spots and woodsy spots!

Our other favorite property, the 5-acre former marijuana "plantation" with pond, turned out to be less than 4 acres and NO pond. So disappointing, it really was gorgeous there. The 1855 cobble stone house in Sodus with 25 acres was going to be a very hard and involved venture, not to mention with 25 acres the taxes were high. But we did think about it for several days. The woodsy 9 acres was very dark, had a very narrow winding road to the property, and there were already several houses close by with more property for sale.
So I think we made a very good choice and I look forward to sharing the story. We close the deal on October 7th, and are planning a big bonfire. The leaves should be changing by then too! Autumn colors!!
