Custom Home On Hobby Farm Acreage Near Flat Rock



PRICE REDUCED!! This farm is located southwest of Flat Rock and just west of IL-1. The property has a nice custom built home on it with most of the wood for the woodwork on the inside coming off the farm. The house has seven nice sized bedrooms and three bathrooms. Most of the bedrooms are on the upper level with the kitchen, living room, and master being located on the main level. The dry basement is where you’ll find the laundry room, cellar, wood burning stove, and plenty of extra room for storage. The house is hooked to rural water and Norris Electric; outside hydrants are hooked to a well. There is 400 amp service split with 200 going to the house and 200 going to the shed. The siding is full-length poplar milled from the farm and is resistant to wood borrowing insects. A large orchard just across the driveway grows apple, pear, and peach trees. There’s also a large grape arbor, and the owner uses the grapes to make several gallons of grape juice every summer. When you enter the property in either the top or bottom driveway, you drive next to one of the two ponds located on the property that are fully stocked with bass, bluegill, catfish, and hybrid striper bass. Just north of the house is where you’ll find the two very large pole barns, both of which have concrete floors, electric, water, and the one is fully insulated. The current owner manufactures portable buildings, but both of these would make an excellent shop or room for another business. Just east of the one building is a nice barn where the owner has his horses, milk cow, and extra hay for the winter months. There is an approximately 3-acre pasture just outside the barn you can bail or just run your horses or cows in. The 17.5 acres m/l of tillable is located right in the middle of the farm and is currently farmed by a local farmer. On the south side of the property is where you’ll find Sugar Creek running east and west the entire length of the farm. The farm has approximately 50 acres of timber on it and the owner has it on a select cut 5-year rotation to provide extra income. There’s a lot of timber value on the farm with most of the trees being white oak, red oak, walnut, poplar, and ash. In the very east end of the property, the owner has a small food plot with a nice water hole in it to provide both food and water for the wildlife and a great place to do some hunting. All in all, this is a great property with endless opportunities and options that a person just needs to see first-hand. If you’re looking for a big hobby farm or a place to run your business, this is already set up and ready to go.
