Diverse Hunting And Rec Property With Beautiful Home In North Central IL


This is your chance to own a beautiful home on some great hunting property! The property has road frontage to IL Highway 26 and is only 1 minute away from Interstate 180, but there isn’t any noise by the home. This makes the property easily accessible while also providing total seclusion. The 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home has approximately 3,000 square feet of finished living space, which could be more if the basement is finished. In the basement is a storm shelter which can be utilized during severe weather. New heavy-duty laminate floor has been laid throughout the main level in June of 2019. The master bedroom is on the first floor and is connected to a full bathroom with a spacious walk-in closet. The other three bedrooms are on the second story, one of which is connected to a full bathroom. The kitchen is very spacious, and an island provides additional counter space. While sitting at the table, you can look out the big windows overlooking the back yard where deer, turkeys, and other birds are seen regularly. Just off the kitchen is a cozy 4-seasons room which is perfect for drinking your morning cup of coffee or looking at the wildlife out back. The front porch overlooks the half-acre pond which is stocked with bass and panfish offering great fishing opportunities. The outdoor wood-burning boiler helps to significantly reduce the amount of LP gas consumed throughout the year. Also on the property is a garage that has been built into a hill which leaves you with plenty of room for storing tractors, ATV’s, or other vehicles. The concrete slab can be built on top if you wanted to create an additional garage for storage or add additional living space. There is an above ground swimming pool with a nearby changing room to limit the traffic of people running through the house. If you like farm fresh eggs, there is a chick coop built on the property ready to be used. The hunting on this property definitely shouldn’t be overlooked. There is a very strong whitetail deer and turkey population on the property and in the area. There is a 4-acre grassy field which has some clover in it currently. A new owner could significantly improve the quality of hunting and habit on the property if they planted the field as a food plot. The timber is very diverse with a lot of young and mature oak, cherry, and walnut trees. It doesn’t take long to fall in love with this property, so give me a call to schedule your private showing before somebody beats you to it!
