This country acreage and home is located in a desirable area of southern Washington County, near the Skunk River and Lake Darling State Park! Lake Darling is directly across the road and a renowned recreational park in southeast Iowa! This property will appeal to nearly anyone looking for a fine acreage in the countryside, whether you want to live full-time or use it as a recreational getaway.
The cozy home has 1,408 square feet of living space, one bedroom, one bathroom on the main level, and a loft. Recent improvements include an attached garage and a new septic system. There is a fantastic 2-acre stocked pond with a new dock and aerator. The pond is a destination for wildlife, especially the ducks who have been using the pond often because of the ideal proximity between the Skunk River and Lake Darling watersheds. Surrounding the pond are native grasses and sapling hardwoods from the four acres of the Conservation Reserve Program. This compensates the property owner in exchange for promoting soil and water conservation with wildlife habitat.
Lake Darling has miles of shoreline, hiking trails, swimming beach, playground, and cabins. Hunting is not allowed there except for a three-day controlled antlerless hunt, and it's no secret that big bucks roam the area. There are also 2.5 acres of tillable land, which gives you an area for farming, gardening, or wildlife habitat.
If you’ve waited for a quaint and manageable acreage in the countryside of southeast Iowa, please get in touch with the listing agent, Ben Harshyne, with Whitetail Properties Real Estate. Showings are by appointment only.
