Also in the basement is a custom Fort Knox safe built into the concrete walls. This house has lots of space to fit all of your needs, but it says cozy warm in the wintertime with the Classic Outdoor Wood Furnace that helps heat the house. Before getting to the home, you’ll notice the nicely paved blacktop driveway leads right past a beautiful Morton building with a 40x42 section for parking heaving equipment and machinery, a 42x76 concrete floor, and a 12x20 finished room for butchering deer! Once you’re done butchering the deer, or if you want to leave them hanging, you could put them in the 7x7 walk-in cooler that is also in the shed! This building has everything you could possibly need, along with a 6x12 closet for storage! The sellers are avid outdoorsmen, and they’ve poured every ounce of blood, sweat, tears, and passion into making this property the hunting mecca that it is. The property has been under strict Quality Deer Management, and they are heavily involved with the NWTF making this property a turkey hunter’s paradise. What does this mean for you? Your new property will be adjacent to some of the best deer and turkey hunting Jo Daviess County has to offer! The sellers are also offering the opportunity to purchase more than the advertised 20 acres if you desire more. There is a variety of equipment that they would be willing to sell and is negotiable if the buyer has an interest in it. This property is only one mile from Chestnut Mountain Ski Lodge, and just a few minutes from all of the other amenities that Galena has to offer.
