So here we have an Amish home-and-store package way up in northern Minnesota. They’re selling both buildings together. I doubt they’re leaving behind the contents of the store. But we can still take a look at what’s inside both the home and store in these photos.
There are a cluster of Amish communities in the the top half of the Land of 10,000 Lakes. This one would be in the area of Lengby. That’s a village (officially it seems they call it a city, but the population is…90). All in all this is a pretty remote and sparsely-populated area. And the Amish community is just a single church district in size, founded 2012.
The brief description:
Do you want a spacious retail/workshop building with a 4-bedroom home and outbuildings? Do you want a 1,568 square foot 4 bedroom home on 10 acres with a finished shop, barn, and pasture land? Either way, this Amish-built/renovated property conveniently located along a paved county highway, meets your desires!
First a look inside the home. Right off the bat we can see this family probably has some connection to the next-door-neighbor state. Do you see what I mean?
In Amish homes children help with the dishes. And that would include boys in homes where there are mostly or only boys. Mom can always use a hand.
This appears to be a manufactured home with a simple layout. A big open main room with kitchen would suit an Amish family well.
Blackboard (greenboard?) and propane lights.
This shot gives you a view of the fridge. Propane refrigerators, which are common among Amish, often resemble the freezer-on-top wide-door design of a generation or two ago.
A look at the bedrooms. Great quilt.
I imagine this area is good for hunting. Is that a quiver on the left?
And you can see by the property layout that they do have a lot of wooded land.
Now let’s have a look inside the shop.
It appears they are running a dry goods and foods shop inside this space.
Those look like ovens on the right.
And the back of the store. You can notice the very simple yet durable construction here. Looks like the same metal material was used both on the inside and out.
Buggy parking. A closed storm front is a nice thing to have in an area where winter temps can get down below zero.
So as for the cost, once again here it’s 10 acres with a simple four-bedroom home (includes a bathroom so unlike some Amish homes, won’t need to install that) and a sizeable shop building. This area is pretty out of the way, so of course that affects the price.
This property is on the market for just $119,000. The agent is Carol Sollie of Sollie Realty.
