Rural IL Retreat Near Saline River Perfect Place to Hunt and Live


PRICE REDUCED!! Here is a beautiful home and pole barn that would make the ideal retreat or permanent residence! This property has everything the avid outdoorsman or nature lover could ask for. The 768 sq. ft. 1 bedroom 1 bath home was finished in 2002 and has a cozy rustic feel that blends seamlessly with the landscape. The interior is well lit with natural light which pours through large sliding glass doors & windows. The floors, walls, staircase, and accents are all wood and really make the house feel like part of the landscape. The bedroom is a 12’x16’ loft that overlooks the living area and the sliding glass doors that lead out to the deck. The back deck is covered and overlooks the 1.8+/- lake and is perfect for watching the sunset or rise with a cup of coffee. A 24’x40’ pole barn sits adjacent to the home. The pole barn is two stories and is partially finished yet still has propane gas heat, window unit A/C and electricity. The second floor is 14’x40’ with plywood walls and floors and also has a “hoist” style elevator for moving larger items from one floor to the next. The layout of the property is mostly gently rolling with some steeper ridges scattered throughout. The timber is mostly hardwoods with some good mast producing oaks. Several of the steeper areas have thick cover and make ideal bedding areas. There is an excellent trail system throughout the property that is wide enough for a tractor and implements to access anywhere on the farm. The property adjoins neighboring crop fields on the north, west and east sides. There are multiple well-worn travel corridors created by the topography that make ideal ambush locations to catch deer on their way to feed on neighboring crop fields. Whether you’re looking for a permanent residence or a weekend getaway with great hunting and fishing opportunities, give us a call to schedule your private tour!
