PRICE REDUCED! I love the classic feel of this full-package recreational property. It offers fantastic hunting with diverse wildlife cover and food sources, great fishing with a well-stocked pond, and a handy outbuilding where you can keep equipment and stay the weekend. It's between Bonaparte, Farmington, and Mount Sterling in a desirable neighborhood for mature whitetails.
You will love the large pond close to the building with Bass, Crappie, Catfish, and Sunfish. The land has an excellent mix of hardwoods, open prairie, and brushy areas. Combined with all of the edges, that makes it feel deceivingly large. It was great to see how many young White Oaks are growing on this property, evidence of a thriving ecosystem. A notable feature is that the property is gently south-facing, a preferred terrain for bedding areas; especially when the weather turns cold. Wildlife naturally want to be on this farm; check out the trail camera photos! Six acres are used for food plots, and more open acres can be adapted to your desired use. For example, you could claim some of the prairie for more food plots, farm some of it, or continue to enhance diverse wildlife habitat. A live water source - Big Indian Creek - flows just off the south property line.
A metal pole building stands next to the road at the farm's entrance. Half is used for storing equipment, and the other is an unfinished living quarters area. It has power and rural water, a little interior finishing work, and a septic system that will complete the project.
Undoubtedly, Van Buren County is one of the top destinations in Iowa for hunting top-end whitetails. If you want a private showing, please call listing agent Ben Harshyne with The Southeast Iowa Land Team for Whitetail Properties Real Estate.
