Whitetail Properties Real Estate is honored to present an opportunity to own one of the nicest building sites we’ve ever offered in southeast Iowa. Located on the north edge of Keokuk, IA, this well-planned country acreage has pristine hardwood ridges overlooking a private lake. This property has the perfect terrain to build the home of your dreams in one of the most beautiful settings you’ll find.
The property is 36.2 surveyed acres and has private road access across a large dam that leads to a ridgetop of Oak timber. This property borders the east side of McDowell Lake, a private body of water constructed in the late 1960s, and has approximately 20 surface acres. It has access to Highway 218, utilities, and lake frontage. McDowell Lake is private and only accessible to the homeowner association members. This pristine lake is stocked with crappie, bass, and sunfish. Boats with electric trolling motors are permitted on the lake.
When the owner built the lakes, he had Rathbun Water, electricity, and natural gas service installed around the lake, so utilities are in place. A covenant on the deed disallows the property for commercial purposes or building a recreational campground. If you’ve been waiting years for an opportunity to own a property with a lake to build next to, don’t let this chance slip away. Call the listing agent Ben Harshyne to schedule a private showing.
