PRICE REDUCED! Beautiful farm with home and a diverse blend of habitat types. This farm is a nature and wildlife lover’s dream. The home has 2,118 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. It has a spacious living and kitchen area, dining room and a 1,950 square foot finished walk-out basement. A large deck overlooks the spacious yard and is ideal for entertaining guests or enjoying a morning coffee. The property has a diverse blend of habitat types with everything needed to grow, hold and harvest mature whitetails and wild turkeys. The nearly mile-long, private, all-weather 2-track driveway originates from the one-lane blacktop road that forms the south boundary of the property and winds around to the virtual center of the property. The peaceful drive is tree-lined with manicured lawn and leads directly onto the paved drive that surrounds three sides of the home. The home is situated on high ground with long open views across some of the cultivated fields and timber, while the land to the west falls more than 50 feet through mature timber to the wide, clear, year-round limestone creek below. There is about ¾ mile of this creek within the property, with other substantial and small tributaries. There is a 1-acre, deep, year-round pond situated in a timber island about 200 yards from the home, along with a smaller pond full of exotic lilies. The entire setting and entryway give one the feeling that it is extremely remote and very peaceful.
The land itself is very diverse with about 53 acres of tall native grass CRP, approximately 73 acres of cropland, rented for $100 per acre, 17 additional acres in food plots (currently in standing corn), with the remainder being creek, timber and wetland. The timber is a mix of hardwood and creates fall colors reminiscent of New England. Smaller trees and flowering shrubs add brilliant color in the spring. The mix of grass, crop ground and timber are extremely complex and can be best understood by the fact that the edge of the timber, where it surrounds the open fields, is literally almost 13 miles long.
The current owner is a naturalist who has dedicated the farm to the wild world since spring 2014. The farm is home to a dense and thriving whitetail deer population that has not been hunted since 2013. Wild turkeys are very abundant with many mature males, while doves and wood ducks are plentiful. The farm is home to a great variety of birds and animals.
This is a place of peaceful privacy and tranquility. Its diverse terrain and vegetation make it feel many times larger than its acreage suggests and here in the middle of it all you feel like you are in a remote wilderness, but you are only six miles from the most important amenities of civilization. The town of Marion has a hospital, various clinics, banks, grocery stores, hardware, post office and almost anything else you might need. Mail is delivered at the start of the driveway, while FedEx and UPS deliver to the home. Paducah, Kentucky is an easy hour away with commercial air service to Chicago, while Nashville international airport is less than three hours’ drive.
The current owner searched across eight different states for several months to find this rare property. It waits for a new owner who would like to be away from it all. This rare wild world can be home to a hunter, horse person, nature lover or anyone who wants peace, quiet and safety.
