Custom Built Home With Acreage For Sale In West Central IL


Have you been dreaming of that country home with endless possibilities? Have you always wanted a house that sits off the road far enough that no one could see it as they drive by? Is getting your pilot’s license and having your own runway at the top of your bucket list? These are just a few of the unique features of this amazing property. As you drive down your nearly quarter-mile long driveway, you begin to get the feeling that something special lies ahead. Don’t miss the hayfield that is home to the approximately 900-foot long runway. Next, you are greeted by Cyprus trees along the pond and fruit trees in the yard. As you pull up and park you will notice there are two homes on this property. It is a home run for those that have kids or in-laws that love to visit. The main home has a new metal roof and a front porch that just begs for you to sit and have a cup of coffee. This custom-built home has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. Plumbing for an additional bathroom is in place. All the bedrooms and the bath are downstairs which leaves the upstairs for a beautifully remodeled kitchen, a wonderful fireplace and a sunroom that will simply take your breath away. This home was built to harness all the power the sun has to offer and utilize it to heat the home. The entire back of the home is glass which warms the 600 sq. foot enclosed patio during even the coldest winter months. The walls of the home are nearly 14 inches thick. This is due to the double offset construction which eliminates any chance for air gaps and energy loss from within the home. Sit in the hot tub and watch deer and squirrels come up to feed on the many acorns in the yard. A massive stamped patio sits just outside the walkout. The lower level of the home is earthen encased on 3 sides, providing a wonderfully cool lower level for sleeping in the summer months.  The guest home has 2”x6” walls and is extremely well insulated. It has vaulted ceilings in the kitchen and living room. This home has 2 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms making this the perfect house for anyone wishing to come for a short stay or a long visit. The timber is a mixed age class with oaks, hickories, walnuts, and multiple softwood species. The approximate 20 acres of row crop gives good income and provides a wonderful food source for the numerous deer and turkey that call the roughly 33 acres of timber home. Do not miss an opportunity to see this custom home and take in all that this property has to offer. Call today for a private tour.
