Check out this unbelievably diverse and expansive outdoor lover’s paradise! With multiple lakes, mature timber, productive pastures, and an impressive lodge & horse barn; there’s lots to love! Regardless of your interests, you’ll find this property has the perfect mix of land types for creating your very own private outdoor sanctuary or compound. Comprised primarily of reclaimed mine land, this property is covered in dozens of ponds and lakes; 25 acres in all, ranging from ¼ ac frog and cattle ponds to massive 10-acre pits; with excellent fishing, waterfowling and trapping. Boat launches at several of the pits provide access to legitimate trophy largemouth bass and crappie fishing, while several shallow wetlands and sloughs create ideal waterfowl habitat with perfect blind locations, not to mention incredible frog gigging. Most of the waterfowl migration in this part of the state relates to the Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area; a 9000+ ac prairie and marsh restoration area sitting just 9 miles south of the property. It’s no wonder the property is home to tons of resident wood duck, teal, and Canadian geese. In addition to incredible waterfowl potential, there’s no shortage of quail and turkey habitat, with several seen and heard across the property regularly. Management of some of the grasslands could result in an explosion of these already strong populations. The deer hunting on this property has been absolutely incredible with the owners taking several trophy-class deer over the years. Multiple tower blinds can be found overlooking ideal food plot locations, while several tree stands are scattered throughout the 200+/- acres of mature timber. The timber on this property is mostly mature and ranges from quality flat hardwood stands to dense spoil bank conifer forest. Outdoor recreation aside, this property boasts 50+/- acres of prime pasture land that could easily be fenced and put into grazing production. The entirety of the property is linked together with an extensive internal road and/or trail system, many easily passable by pickup. The exterior of the property consists of nearly 1.5 miles of county road frontage which enjoys both municipal water and electricity, providing future development opportunities to the multiple picturesque build sites along the perimeter of the property. Security of the property is maintained with multiple locked, gated access points off the county roads. All roads and trails lead to the center of the property where the owners have strategically built an impressive getaway oasis including a recently constructed 2400 sq ft 4 stall horse barn with hay loft and tack storage. The barn also features a beautiful 3+/- acre cedar fenced paddock with a round pen and ¼ acre pond, making an ideal setup for the equine lover. Not to be outdone, a 4900+/- sq ft lodge is perfectly located to take advantage of the entire property. With 3440+/- sq ft of finished living space, this stunning lodge features beautiful cedar wall planking throughout, a great room with a massive stone fireplace, cedar mantel and towering ceilings, perfect for displaying all your trophies. An industrial chef’s kitchen is flanked by beautiful Amish-built cabinetry, granite countertops, and incredible appliances including an industrial 6-burner stove with double ovens. You and your guest are sure to find yourselves gathering around the large kitchen island which seats 12 and serves as the heartbeat of the lodge. Moving through the kitchen, you’ll find a large bunk room that currently sleeps 8 and features 2 water closets and 2 showers stalls. Adjacent to both the great & bunk rooms is a 900 sq ft garage/mudroom that features a large overhead door, laundry facilities, and multiple gun storage vaults, making an ideal setup for coming and going with muddy equipment. Of course, no real lodge would be complete without a walk-in cooler. At 250 sq ft and with a professional meat trolley rail system, you and your guests can take comfort knowing your game meat is being well cared for while allowing for those critical few days of rest before butchering. Whether it’s after a long day in the field or you’re simply at the lodge to unwind, you and your guests will certainly appreciate the relaxation and peace that comes from a soak in the 8-person hot tub or 45’x25’ heated pool! A 324 sq ft dedicated hot tub room with exterior access allows for year-round enjoyment, while the large inground heated pool provides open-air expansive views of both the night sky and open prairie. All in all, this is simply a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We rarely see properties of this size brought to market, especially contiguous with such good access. Regardless of your interests or intent, if you value the natural world and wish to reconnect with your role in it, there’s no doubt you’re going to fall in love with this property. It offers a usually unobtainable level of seclusion, beautifully rugged landscapes dotted with pristine blue-green waters, expansive native prairie mixed with young woodland, a plethora of game and wildlife species, and incredible amenities that will leave you begging to return or possibly refusing to leave….
