Small tracts of land under 10 acres are few and far between in Adams County. This 3.9 acres at the northern end of Indian Valley comes with power, a domestic well and two septic systems. The parcel was previously developed with the existing manufactured home, a single wide trailer and several small storage sheds. In the interest of adding seclusion to the land, an earth berm that also succeeds as a sound buffer was constructed between the manufactured home and the highway.
The parcel slopes gently southeasterly gifting inspiring views of the West Mountain and territorial views of beautiful Indian Valley. The parcel is just the right size for a country homesite. The land will support a few small farm animals, a garden and orchard with room to spare.
