What's the difference between 56 acres and 5.6 acres besides the obvious 50.4 acres? We want to buy land, but we don't want to live like 2 hours from the city. I found this place... it's not 50 acres... but it's enough for what we want to do I think. Plus it has an 8 stall barn and indoor arena, 3 pastures, and a tiny wittle 2 bed/2bath house which makes it in our budget. Everything else has a monster house and is priced over $600,000. All we want is space. Could we really use that much land? I could for trails. We're not farmers. Couple of dogs, couple of horses, couple of sheep, couple of turkeys... nothing in large numbers. A garden, small projects. Thoughts?
