This majestic fifty acres in northern Johnson County is quite possibly the prettiest, most private setting I’ve seen in Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Corridor. It offers an amazing dead-end road location and includes several improvements, farmland, horse pasture, recreational acres, and incredible views if one were to build a home*. It's very quiet back here, with a special setting with a country feel and extremely convenient to Iowa City and Cedar Rapids–one-half a mile south of the blacktop 120th Street NE that connects Shueyville to Solon. Here is your chance to own a very prime real estate asset in the heart of a thriving area.
Several buildings previously used as commercial equine facility for horse boarding and riding are at the entrance. The pole building has recently been finished into a nice studio apartment or cabin with one bedroom/one bath and an open kitchen and living room layout. This makes for a great place to spend the weekends. An old barn still stands here at the entrance, reminding you of the deep agricultural history of our area. A garage and a second outbuilding provide extra storage, and two open sheds were used for horses.
There are 18 tillable acres in grass hay and 12 acres of fenced pasture. The owner rents the hay out to a local farmer, who helps to keep the pastures mowed as there are no longer horses on the property. Aside from the beautiful views, one of the greatest upsides is a large ravine through the middle of the property. This would make an incredible pond if you built a dam across the tightest pinch in the ravine, filling up the big valley the cabin and building site area overlooks.
This farm lies on the north side of the Coralville Reservoir, which has abundant recreational opportunities for hunting, fishing, and boating. Every time I visit this farm, I see deer or turkey. This farm might be perfect for those wanting an expansive and private acreage within minutes of our area's two cities, a place to build your dream home on*possibly. Call Johnson County Land Specialist Ben Harshyne to schedule a private showing if you want to take a look. Please do not drive down the road without calling the listing agent to schedule a showing.
