Horse Training Facility With Home And Acreage In Northern IL


If you have any interest in raising horses, then this property is perfect for you. Whether you want a few for your family or you want to turn it into a business, this property can accommodate you. The home on the property is a beautiful country style 2,500 square foot ranch home with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The outdoor patio makes for the perfect place to drink your morning coffee while being surrounded by beautiful landscaping. A newer metal roof not only looks great on the house but will provide you with a low maintenance alternative to traditional shingles. Inside the house, the primary living room has a large stone faced fireplace with vaulted beam ceilings. Sliding barn doors along with wooden walls throughout the home add a nice touch to the country style living. The home was originally built in 1975, and in 1999, there was an addition built on to add a living room, a full kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. This would be a great place for the in-laws or guests to stay, or you could turn it into an incredible man-cave. It could also be rented out to a farm hand that is helping run the equine operation. The current owners have run a very successful horse training operation for the last 20 years! The 90’x120’ horse barn consists of a 60’x120’ indoor sand riding arena. The remaining 30’x120’ of the barn consists of 14 10’x14’ stalls, ten of which are matted and ready to house horses, a 10’x12’ hot water wash rack, separate feed room, and a 10’x36’ lounge/tack room. There is a 10-foot-wide concrete isle running the length of the barn so there is plenty of room to walk horses through or tie them up when the farrier and veterinarian come by. Worried about your older horses during the harsh winters? Don’t. There are two sets of radiant heat above the barn aisle to keep your horses warm during the cold months. Outside the barn are several acres of fenced in pasture with numerous lean-tos to keep horses out of the elements. There is a 4-horse hot walker to help horses cool down after a long ride. The 60-foot wood fence round-pen is perfect for summer riding lessons or training horses. There are mowed trails throughout the property which are great for trail rides whether that be on horseback or ATV’s. About 8 acres are grass hay which can be bailed to help cut down the cost of feeding throughout the year. The current owners average 50 round-bales per cutting. This hay field backs up against Laona Heights Nature Preserve, which is closed to hunting. This means you have a large wildlife sanctuary adjacent to your property! Deer and turkeys already feed out into the hayfield regularly. Some of the hay fields could be tilled up and planted in various food plots. Some of the pasture fence could be removed, and planted with more crops to attract more wildlife. Leaving standing corn or soybeans right next to a wildlife preserve would provide you with incredible hunting opportunities. With multiple tree lines splitting up the hay fields, there are natural pinch points to entice wildlife to travel right in front of your stand.  This property is very unique and has a lot to offer.
