The beautiful landscape, situated along the banks of the nationally known scenic Big Darby Creek, is 1,500 acres of a combination of wooded, natural areas, pastoral land– corn, soybeans, and lush green sod, three 5-acre lakes, and several 19th century freshly white painted barns and buildings. Darby Dan Farm even has a private airport with a runway available for use upon request!
There are two 5,000 Sq. Ft houses that have that quaint, country feel yet an elegant manor appeal nestled in amongst the trees. The family still visits for holidays and resides in the homes that are on the historical estate. Tour Homes
