Nestled in the beautiful landscapes of Van Buren County, this sprawling country acreage has a farmhouse, spacious machine shed, and acres of open pasture and hay fields - all gathered around a large pond. Just a short drive south of Keosauqua and merely one mile from the recreation of Lake Sugema, this property offers the country lifestyle for horse lovers, cattlemen, or those who want to live off their own land. It's located on only half a mile of gravel road from paved Highway 2.
The majority of the land is dedicated to pastures–eight in total with good fencing– and a couple sizable areas of hay. In the heart of the property is a three-acre pond stocked with bass, sunfish, and catfish, reaching depths of 20 to 25 feet near the dam. The wildlife love this valley, and travel across each morning and evening.
The farmhouse features the primary bedroom and bathroom on the main level, along with an additional half bathroom. Upstairs, four rooms could be bedrooms, office space, or rec rooms. The main level also includes a cozy living room and a bonus room. The house is supplied with Rathbun Rural Water and shares the durability of a metal roof, a feature consistent across all buildings. The patio and deck have eastern views that stretch across the pond and the main pasture – a perfect way to greet the day with an amazing view across the property.
Adjacent to the farmhouse, an impressive machine building features three stalls, a concrete floor, insulation, and a half bathroom. Inside, 12 pens, once used as dog kennels, offer versatile spaces. The barn has six stalls, a tack room, two storage rooms, and a hay loft, all crowned by a sturdy steel roof. A shed with a spacious stall and additional storage sits conveniently near the barn. Further enhancing the equine setup is a round pen and two adjacent lots beside the barn.
Whether you're a horse lover or simply want to live in the country, this property is a dream come true. Contact the Southeast Iowa Land Team at Whitetail Properties Real Estate at 319-853-1162 to schedule a showing.
