Rare, Large Farm Near Cache River With Home And Income


This is a phenomenal turnkey property with income! Large contiguous acre tracts are rare in this part of Southern Illinois and this one has everything you could ask for. The home sits on top of a hill at the end of a ¼ mile long driveway with scenic views all around. It was built in 2007 and can accommodate a large family or all of your hunting buddies. The home comes furnished and boasts 1,988 sq. ft. of living space, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, central AC, propane heat, a whole home generator, a central vacuum system and a 648 sq. ft. enclosed porch. The large living room measures 22’ x 22’ and has a stone fireplace. The kitchen measures 22’ x 15’ providing plenty of room for everyone and each of the 5 bedrooms measures 13’ x 10’ with room for multiple bunk beds or one large bed in each room. Beside the home is a 40’ x 48’ shop building. It has a large roll up garage door, concrete floor, 220 amp service and a 10’ tall covered porch area. Between the shop and home is a large gravel parking area with plenty of room for tractors, implements and several vehicles. The farm has a great mix of habitat and topography with everything it takes to grow and hold mature whitetails. Currently there are 122 +/- acres enrolled in CRP generating $8,336.00 annually (effective 10-1-17 CRP acreage changes to 110.37 +/- acres enrolled generating $10,492.00 annually), 7 established food plots, 2 ponds, a creek and several feeder streams, 7 nice box blinds, an excellent trail system, miles of field edge, numerous funnels & pinch points, ample thick bedding/sanctuary cover and very hunter friendly topography. The farm’s layout perfectly blends the diverse habitat types with the topography. Most of the fields are gently rolling with fingers of timber branching out to create superb ambush locations as deer travel from one timbered area to the next. The bigger blocks of timber become slightly steeper as they drop into the hollows. These timbered hollows have great stands of hardwood & softwood species providing ample mast crop. Some of the timbered areas have multiple hollows that connect and are superb major travel corridors. The trail system makes for easy access to anywhere on the farm and is plenty wide enough for a tractor and implements. The western portion of the farm adjoins a large contiguous tract of the Cache River State Natural Area providing even more recreational acreage to enjoy. This State Natural Area adjoins an even larger contiguous acreage tract that is a nature preserve. This Nature Preserve is an added bonus as it offers the opportunity to consistently recruit unpressured deer to the farm.  If you’re looking for a large contiguous acreage turnkey farm with a home, shop, and great income, give us a call today and schedule your private tour!
