Country Acreage with Historic Farmhouse, Barn, Pond, and Outbuildings Near Iowa City


It’s extremely rare to have the opportunity to purchase a “Century Farm”, which is one that has been continuously owned by the same family for 100 years or more. Here is a chance for you to own part of that farm located in the beautiful countryside near Hawkeye Wildlife Area, Kent Park, and the Amana Colonies; along with a turn-of-the-century farmhouse, outbuildings, and a pond.

The house has strong bones, being well cared for over the generations (detailed improvements available upon request). It can be lived in now with some slight improvements or could be remodeled into an updated dwelling. I can see someone with the right vision blending new amenities with historic character into a modern farmhouse or bed and breakfast. A Morton building provides storage for farm equipment, along with several other small sheds, a historic red barn, and classic blue Harvestore grain silo.

The open field which surrounds the pond could continue to be prairie, or improved into pasture. There are several exceptional building sites on this farm, and the area’s hunting is excellent. This property is located within the Clear Creek Amana School District. The house and outbuildings are being offered as-is.
