Renovated Farmhouse In Wooded Setting Near Sheldon In Northeast IL

Description

When this incredible historic family farm came on the market of the first time ever a few years ago, it literally sold in just days and now it's even better. Because the owner’s plans have suddenly changed with the addition of triplets, they have moved to a bigger house and have this one priced to sell quickly! This is a rare second chance to own this completely remodeled, three bedroom, one bath farmhouse on one of the prettiest pieces of property around. In addition to the beautifully redone home, there a huge three plus car garage, an original turn of the century barn, a wood corn crib and a milk house/garden shed. The property is laid out almost perfectly for horses, a small cattle/livestock operation or hobby farm. Some of the property has fenced pasture/hay/alfalfa fields with the balance being mature timber and wooded areas. It’s the woods you find the most appealing whether you are an avid deer or turkey hunter or just appreciate all the natural beauty this property offers. As you walk out to the back of the property, you’ll probably be surprised to see a rather dramatic wooded bluff gently sloping down to a bottom with a dry creek bed. Being just a few hundred feet from the Iroquois River, the snow melt and spring rain will swell the banks of the creek bed with runoff from the higher surrounding ground. For a short time of the year, you’ll have the pleasure of a flowing creek on your “back 40” and then as quickly as it came, it is replaced with lush green vegetation and wildflowers. Imagine this being just steps from your back door with hundreds of mature oak, maple, walnut and hickory trees. There’s even a really cool stand of paw-paw trees down alongside the creek bed. The house itself has been almost 100% redone on the inside and really only needs some cosmetic finishing work on the outside. The current owners have invested thousands of dollars in a new roof, plumbing, electric, insulation, mechanicals, flooring, fixture not to mention a fully remodeled white subway tiled bathroom, a classic styled but contemporary country kitchen with high-end finishes and stainless-steel appliances.
