Have you ever wanted to live on a farm? Not some sprawling place way out in the countryside: something a bit more small-scale, with egg-laying hens and bushels of fresh vegetables that your neighbors buy off you, like some hyper-local CSA. The reason we ask is because 2956 Lowrance Drive in North Decatur is a residential organic urban farm. The previous owners spent a year transforming what was otherwise a standard-issue backyard into a wonderland, and they took it pretty seriously: They're even including all of the infrastructure and tools to keep the operation humming along with a list of dedicated clients who are already accustomed to weekly doorstep deliveries. As for the home itself, this lovingly maintained 1950s ranch is just as HGTV-ready as the land it's on. Original hardwood still runs through the property, but the floorplan has been modernized, with a living room, dining area, and kitchen that are all wide open. Strategic lighting and a warm color palette elevate a rustic charm that still exists. Touches like original doors and wide-framed windows combine with elements like rough-hewn tile in the bathrooms. As organic as the veggies. At +/-1,300 square feet, it's not massive, but way more than enough space for a modern-agrarian family to spread out. Three bedrooms each contain plenty of storage. Two full baths provide utility. Also, the essentials of this micro-farmhouse have gotten attention -- the roof, plumbing, and insulation have all been kept up-to-date. Now, the farm life may not be for everybody. A new owner can just re-convert... But, it would be a bit of a bummer to lose something like this: especially when there is a buyer out there for whom 2956 Lowrance is a back-to-basics dream come true.
