Hi,
several years ago my dad had to go the care facility and I purchased the home place from him so he could have a place to come back to but he never made the return trip. I was a couple hundred miles away so the place just sat empty for a long time, now that he has been gone for a couple of years and I am even a couple hundred miles further away I just do not see myself getting back up there. The taxes are cheap (less than $100 a year) so I have kept the place but the place is continue to fall apart.
It is in southwest Nebraska almost to Colorado and almost to Kansas, it has a creek on one corner of the property, five water wells, one has a windmill, one with a hand pump, a couple have electric submersible pumps.
the old house has a grandpa bear wood stove and a stainless triple wall chimney.
It is 10 acres+-
$20,000
I am not asking very much for it, but I do not know if it is allowed to list property for sale on here, if it is ok, I can add more information, if it is not please delete this posting.

Thanks
Cliff

Howdy Clifford, I have added your post to the real estate forum also.

Looks pretty nice. What town is that in?

I would like to have more info if you want to post it.

Thanks for adding this to the real estate section!!
This is in Parks Nebraska, it is an unincorporated town, the town has mail delivery phone, rural electricity, and internet service available, Verizon cell phone works also but that are all of the services.
The property is 6 blocks that are broken down in lots at the court house but not physically divided by anything.
There is an over grown orchard, when I was growing up it had cherry trees, apple, and a pear tree, goose berries, rhubarb, and aspergus came up each spring. It is very over grown and I do not know how the trees are producing now, I have not been in the orchard for a decade when things set on. We used to have honey bees in the orchard.
The house is in very bad shape. there is a shop that is in need of repair also.
The closest town is 10 miles away, it has a nice hospital and clinic, court house, groceries, ford dealer, fuel and other stores.

Dad was a water well driller and a wind mill repair man, this is why there are quite a few wells on the place.
When we were growing up we had most everything we needed food wise produced there or traded for from neighbors.
My brother lives 12 miles away still. The closest real estate office is in Mc Cook which is over 60 miles so I did not bother to list with an agent.

I can get more pictures if wanted.
Thanks
Cliff

this is the creek, it comes from Rock Creek state lake which is about three miles north of Parks, it is spring fed and just north of it is a state operated fish hatchery.

Looks like there is a winery north of there too.

http://www.sagehillvineyard.com/find-us.html

So a good place to grow fruit.

So do you think the house is livable or will it take a lot of work?

Yea, My mom was telling me that the winery was up there, I guess they have guest quarters also.

As far as the house goes it will need to be gutted and a roof, the foundation and half basement is solid.

This had an orchard, it is very over grown so I do not know if it is producing now and if so to what extent. But it used to be abundant with apples, cherry, goose berries.

Thanks
Cliff

Everything has finally been finalized as of a few days ago, the new owners are now making repairs and getting things sorted out and ideas planed.
