Investment And Hunting Property With Brick Home In Northwest IL


PRICE REDUCED!! Prepare to have your breath taken away as you take the driveway through this property, down into the valley where a well-built, secluded, brick farmhouse greets you. Upon entering the property, you’ll notice the excellent mix of tillable acreage, pasture, timber, and a creek running through all of it… and this is only a fraction of the property! There are approximately 101 acres of cropland on the property currently generating $175/acre from cash rent, and there are about 151 acres of pasture generating $15/acre. This totals $19,940 in income, and more income could be generated from a hunting lease or by renting out the house on the property. The views from various points on this property are second to none, especially combined with the sight of a green hayfield, or several head of cattle grazing in the pasture. One of my favorite things about the property is being able to stand on one side of the property, and knowing that the majority of what you can see is a part of this property! If you think that running cattle on this property is a great opportunity, most would be happy to know that cattle aren’t the only animals that frequent this gorgeous piece of land. The deer are abundant, and the hunting opportunities are excellent! All throughout my drive of this property, I saw deer in different areas. With the diversity that this property has to offer between the food, cover, and water, you could turn it into a top-notch deer hunting property! There are numerous turkeys that frequent the property, and I even found a fresh spot in the dirt where a Tom had been strutting on a field edge. There are many different types of trees throughout the property, including walnuts and oaks, but some of the trees that make this property even more special are the apple, cherry, and pear trees! If I owned this property, I’d be sitting on the hilltop where the fruit trees are located watching the sun go down on a cool fall evening while munching on an apple. The fences on this property are well-maintained, so if you’re looking to expand your operation or move cattle onto this property, it’s ready to go for you. Since the creek on the property is spring fed, you’ll always have water for your cattle as well. The home on this property is approximately 2500 sq. ft. and this house is built solid! With brick all the way around, the sellers have made several recent updates to the inside and outside of the home. Within the last few years, there has been a new roof put on the house, new windows, new doors, air conditioning unit, furnace, and a new retaining wall outside of the house was built, and I can assure you that that thing isn’t going anywhere! The house has 4 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, and the hallway upstairs between the bedrooms is extremely spacious! Did I mention that the hallway and stairs were also recently re-stained? Fresh paint and plaster repairs were made in the house, and new appliances were added about a year ago. Luckily for you, the appliances will stay with the property, but that’s not the only thing that’s staying. There’s a John Deere tractor and a John Deere riding mower that can also stay with the property. The bathroom in the house was just refinished before the property was listed, so your work there is already completed! There is garage storage underneath the main level of the house, and finishing the attic for additional use inside the house is definitely a possibility! It is spacious and in great shape waiting to be converted into your next great room! All buildings were recently painted, and several of them received updates such as a new roof or metal siding. Most of the outbuildings on the property have electric, and you’ve more than enough space to run your farm operation! There is a 20x40 chicken house, a 45x15 corn crib with a concrete floor, a 32x15 lean-to, a 28x57 barn with a cattle trough in the lower level, a 40x70 cattle barn, a second corn crib that is 40x15, a newly refinished metal shed that measures 10x16, a 19x10 storage building just outside the house, and a 60x20 outbuilding for even more storage! The internal road system makes accessing crops and cattle a breeze. There are so many things about this property that you need to see for yourself! Words and pictures don’t even do it justice!
