When the Clary family purchased South Laurel Farm in 1999, it was 36.73 acres of land, which backed up to the Blackwater State Forest. A new barn was erected and had two floors with four horse stalls on the first floor with a dog trot, tool room, and storage. Later, the first-floor horse stalls were converted to an apartment and additional storage. The second floor is the living space with an open kitchen, living, and dining space and two bedrooms and bathrooms. The property is now 119 acres with 20 full acres of cleared land around the barn. It includes a flowing creek, Penny Creek, a pond stocked with brim and bass, and a beautiful oak tree with a deck built under it for varied uses.
