Beautiful Home With Plum River Valley Views In Northwest IL


If you’ve been waiting for your forever home to come along with incredible views, then this is the home for you! This beautiful home sits on top of a hill overlooking the Plum River Valley to the east. If you look out the west side of the home, you can easily see much of the remaining acreage. Make sure you have a good pair of binoculars or a spotting scope handy to get a good look at all of the wildlife eating in the food plots or bedding in the CRP. The sellers have already planted 4.7 acres of corn and 3 acres of soybeans to help attract and feed wildlife, making this property TURN-KEY. The 37.5 acres of CRP provide for great bedding and have an annual return of $3,176. The evergreens around the food plots are excellent cover for the deer, and the sellers have picked up numerous shed antlers underneath the trees in the late winter and early spring months. There are approximately 18 acres of timber which are made up of young and mature trees. A logging company has marked roughly $30,000-$40,000 worth of mature walnut trees which could be harvested for an additional return on your investment. In the southwest corner of the property, there is a small, spring-fed stream providing a year-round water source for wildlife. Surrounding the property is a 3,200-acre cattle ranch which has had limited hunting pressure and outstanding deer management. The approximately 3,700 square foot home has four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. There are two bedrooms and a full bathroom upstairs, and one of the bedrooms is currently being used as an office area. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the main floor. It features vaulted ceilings and a spacious walk-in closet. A deck overlooking the river valley can be accessed from the master bedroom, living room, and kitchen, which is perfect for grilling or enjoying morning cups of coffee. The living room has multiple large windows which offer great views of the river valley. There is also a beautiful big stone fireplace which stretches from the floor up to the ceiling. The kitchen and dining area have hardwood floors, and there is a large island in the kitchen, which offers plenty of room for preparing meals. The laundry room is on the main floor and features a half-bathroom. The finished basement is great for entertaining guests. There is an additional bedroom and bathroom, which would be great for guests. The walkout basement has hardwood floors and a stone fireplace to help heat it during the winter months. Grab your popcorn, because there is a home movie theatre which has been wired with surround sound, making it the perfect place for watching ball games or movies with friends and family. The built-in gun safe is perfect for storing any firearms you may have or any important documents and possessions. Of course, no basement would be complete without a bar to help entertain your guests, so the sellers have already started it for you! If the house isn’t spacious enough, there is a 36’ x 48’ fully insulated building next to the home. It has two 10’x12’ doors which should be plenty of room for tractors, boats, vehicles, or ATV’s indoors. There is an office area and bathroom inside so you don’t have to make the trip to the house. When you aren't working on the property or hanging inside the home, Lake Carroll is only minutes away offering multiple recreational opportunities.
