The farm was once home of the Maplewood Clydesdales and is made up of over 80 acres of productive tillable land, historic barns, and two historic homes. The centerpiece of the farm is a two-story Greek-Colonial 2 story farmhouse, a historic 100x30 equestrian barn with an attached 30x25 workshop, and a 40x70 Morton Pole barn overlooking the headwaters of the River Raisin.

This productive tillable farm boasts well-drained rich soils. Loamy sand with an above-average NCCPI rating of 67. The property is beautifully laid out with the western acreage overlooking the headwaters of River Raisin valley just below Iron Creek. A sportsman’s paradise, you will find a mixed bag of game here, including whitetail deer, wild turkey, and a plethora of waterfowl. Being nestled along the river valley, you're on a natural flyway, and you will see and hear an incredible amount of waterfowl. Sandhill Cranes, Canadian Geese, Trumpeter Swans, and other waterfowl frequent here.

The eye-catching colonial home is approximately 3600sq ft with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and large country windows letting in plenty of natural light. The home has excellent craftsmanship and is full of unique local history. This is truly a MUST SEE!

The 2nd farmhouse is on the west side of Clinton Rd across from the Colonial. This lovely farmhouse has natural gas, beautiful views, and two storage garages. This property is in an excellent location on a paved road just ¾ of a mile North of scenic US 12 (Chicago Rd), the welcoming village of Clinton, the “Gateway to the Irish Hills,” and just over 20 miles to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and Michigan Stadium.
