Located along the Iowa River in southeast Louisa County, this wildlife-rich property features a diverse riverbottom habitat and an excellent building site on a hard surface road. It sits between the small towns of Toolesboro and Oakville, southeast of Wapello and east of Morning Sun, along Great River Road. For those searching for a site to build a home or cabin, there's a flat area near the road with utilities nearby. This site is essentially a bluff, 100 feet above the floodplain, and the owner has trimmed trails to access the rest of the land from this building site area. The land along the Iowa River has exceptional wildlife ecosystems, teeming with a rich variety of vegetation and wildlife species. Big whitetails and eastern wild turkeys thrive here, along with various birds. Additionally, the property's proximity to the Mississippi River flyway is an excellent opportunity for waterfowl hunting, and there are secluded sloughs that could make for good places to duck hunt in addition to the river. The owner has maintained trails providing access to the river's edge. While most of the frontage is along a side channel of the Iowa River, access to the main channel is also available. Notably, this property has abundant large maple trees, potentially offering future timber value for its next owner.
