Property Overview


This farm/horse ranch is located on Kruse Road in Fairview Pennsylvania in the county of Erie just a few minutes from interstate I-90 and I-79. It is a 24 acre parcel of land with a ranch house, very large 8 stall barn and 2 fenced pastures each with a pond. Each pasture is about 2.5 acres with a hay field of about12 acres. All were planted in 2008 with a horse seed mix and the field produces about 1500 – 2000 square bales annually. There is very little woods involved but one does exist at the back of the property and at the east property line. It is common to see deer, turkey, coyotes and even an occasional red fox. Horse trails route to the back and head toward McKean across Elk Creek. The parcel is approximately 600 feet wide by 2600 feet deep with natural gas, electric and water well utilities. No other homes can be seen from the back patio which makes this place a peaceful setting yet minutes from being amongst the populated surrounding areas. The Ohio/PA line is just 15 minutes away, just as is Presque Isle Downs and Casino, Millcreek Mall and the Erie International Airport.


The House


This house is a ranch style 1800 sq. ft. home with an open center design built in later 2007. The design allowed the master bedroom to be on the opposite side of the house from the other 2 bedrooms. A full bathroom is also on each side to support the bedrooms. It sits at the highest level of the property so water drainage is never an issue. The house was designed for our retirement purpose and easy keeping future in mind. It is simply a higher standard of materials from end to end. Although the house is moderate in size it has numerous upgrades above a traditional build.

Upgrades include:

 Extra course of basement block for a higher ceiling.
✓ Floor trusses and basement entry.
✓ 9 ft walls rather than the conventional 8 ft.
✓ Hardwood floors and tile from end to end. (no carpet)

✓ Tank-less hot water.
✓ And so much more.

As these words and pictures will give you an idea of what is here, stopping out for a personal visit is best. This home would cost far more to build today and is turn key now. I would love to show you the entire place on a day you would like to schedule to meet. If you are seriously looking for your own equestrian real estate than make the phone call and bring some boots. An hour of your time will give you the overview of this home to see if it is right for you. I don’t think you will find a place with this much land, peacefulness, low tax and this modern in this area. This is a full functional equitrian property and is in move in condition. Thanks for your interest.
