The Estabrook farm is in a great location being just South and East of Lexington.  It has nearly ½ mile of HWY E frontage.  The old Brick home is burned out but its location offers a great home sight if you wish to build.   The timber draw and Garrison Creek offer an abundance of Turkey or Deer whether you wish to be a hunter or want to just enjoy the view of wildlife.

This ground is fertile with 65 row crop acres.  The west side of the farm is accessed from Cole Lane and contains 16 acres of the crop ground. We hope you will plan to be with us on February 9th, visit with Bob, and exercise your option as a bidder and a buyer on this 102.57 acres of Lafayette County soil.

Chas and Mike
