Have 1.2 acres here in the lovely burbs of Charlotte NC, a small older neighborhood from the 70's. We have 1/4 to 1/2 acre between houses, very nice & quiet. Also have family farm 158 acres 35 miles east of here, cows - shooting range & 3 stocked ponds, in other words heaven. Life is good.

Nearly 9 acres of Hilltop heaven in beautiful Central New York with an unobstructed view of 40 square miles with very little signs of humanity. Ive got a 4500 sq' 190 year old home that Ive been rehabbing for the last ten years, never have to wonder what I will be doing on my days off but thats the way I like it!

The house sits on 5 acres and we have another 6 acres that we have some cattle on. I'm trying get another 5 acres that at the moment belongs to some family that is looking to relocate. It's this land I want to make into my new shooting place Also looking to pick up the 25 acres on top the hill but the seller keeps changing his mind
