Country Home Joining Lusk Creek Trailhead In Eddyville Area


Kick off your boots and come relax poolside on one of the more unique properties in Southern Illinois! One of the things I love about this farm is simply the curb appeal. You would be hard-pressed to find another place that’s as charming as this one. The home and outbuilding sit near the front of the property overlooking the stocked pond. You’ve got long-range views across the property’s pasture and CRP fields. Beyond the fields are large timbered ridges leading down to the Lusk Creek, a gorgeous rock-bottom creek. You can ride your horse right off the property directly onto the Shawnee and quickly hit the River-to-River Trail with access to over 400 miles of trails. The 2,000 S.F., 3-bedroom, 2-bath home has a large living area with a fireplace, full kitchen and separate dining area, storm shelter, sunroom and attached garage. The swimming pool sits just off the sunroom behind the home so you’ve got tons of privacy. It has a large yard with landscaping, a stocked fishing pond and a paved driveway. Next to the home is a 60’x40’ shop with an attached 18’x60’ lean-to shed. There are 99 acres enrolled in CRP that generate $12,466.00 annually! An additional 43 acres of pasture are currently being cut for hay on a 1/3 crop share. There are several established food plots with ideal areas for additional food plot acreage. An established trail system runs through the farm providing easy travel and quiet access to favored stand sites. Three creeks flow through the farm and are major travel corridors for wildlife in the area. The farm adjoins a large tract of the Shawnee National Forest along the eastern border providing additional acreage to hunt and ride. If you’re looking for a beautiful property with a home, outbuilding and income in an area known for big bucks, give us a call today and schedule your private tour!
