Prime Development Site With Building And Recreational Opportunities


With this properties size, unique shape and approximately 450 feet of road frontage on State Road 114, it offers many possible uses including potential development, residential building sites or simply use for hunting and recreation. Being less than a mile west of I-65 and only a few minutes from town, it has easy access and a short commute to Chicago, Lafayette or Indy. Purchased many years ago, and at a much higher price than currently listed for, Callista Estates was the unofficial name and dream of the current owner. Named after his grandmother, he envisioned a wooded residential development with a dozen or so tastefully build homes on the just under 30-acre site. As life happens, the economy and the owner’s plans changed so the dream was never brought to fruition. In visiting the property, you will see why the vision of the current owner might still be in your and the property’s future. With a great location and road access, bordered on one side by Kelly Green subdivision and Curtis Creek Golf course on the other, it could make a great building location for one or more estate type homesites. Currently overgrown, there was previously a 60-foot lane cleared from the front all the way to the back of the property. With a little work, that could easily be cleaned up to allow easy access for building or recreational purposes. An unexpected result of letting the formerly cleared lane go unmaintained is nature allowed to flourish and develop into some very attractive deer habitat. The lush thicket and tangle of brush is filled with wild plants and raspberries as well as other attractive food and cover for deer and wildlife. This naturally developed corridor, bordered on both sides by mature hardwood timber, makes an incredibly diverse and attractive habitat. Give Land Specialist Rob Styka a call to learn more about this great opportunity and schedule a visit to this property.
