Welcome to the heart of McHenry County, just 2.5 miles east of Harvard. As you turn off the pavement onto the gravel road, a sense of seclusion envelops you. Journey through rolling topography, passing by stunning homes, timber, streams, and ponds.
This uniquely shaped property offers two access points on the north side along Green Road. The first, a thin strip, holds potential for a lane leading to one section of timber, while the second guides you through the heart of the property, providing access to the same timber. With a touch of cleanup, both areas could facilitate easier entry.
Heading south, the property unfolds, transitioning from a flattened terrain to gently rolling hills and timber, eventually opening up to 13+/- acres of tillable land. Amongst these hills, a delightful mix of hardwood species, including Red Oak, Cherry, and Black Walnut, grace the landscape. Picture this—a harmonious blend of tree-lined crop fields, substantial blocks of timber, and numerous ponds and streams. The connecting habitat sets the stage for hunting opportunities, offering a chance to encounter a McHenry giant cruising during the rut.
As the timber transitions into open ground, previously enrolled in a CRP program, it has created excellent wildlife habitat. There's potential to re-enroll this portion, possibly adding income for the new owner and creating a perfect space for planting food plots, elevating the hunting potential.
To the east of the open area, you will discover edge and timber pockets transitioning into ridgetop timber, introducing more elevation changes as the contour slopes to the neighboring property's bottoms. The property's layout provides multiple options to and from tree stands, adaptable to varying wind conditions. Light hunting pressure resulted in an impressive buck taken in 2023, showcasing the potential of this haven.
This property is a perfect fit for those seeking a smaller, affordable tract to call their own, not too far from home. A haven for nature enthusiasts, it also holds potential for future development in certain areas.
Embrace the beauty, explore the possibilities—welcome to your McHenry County Haven.
