If you’ve been looking for a country cottage with tons of recreational opportunities, then you need to take a look at this property! Located on the ridge top, this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom eco-friendly cottage is perfect for weekend getaways or staying out during hunting season. With some improvements, this would also make a fine primary residence. This cob constructed cabin utilizes an ancient building technique that mixes straw, clay, and water to form the walls. This creates a very well-insulated building easy to keep cool in the summer time and warm in the winter. The cottage features central AC and an LP furnace along with a wood burning stove to assist in keeping things warm. Multiple solar panels assist in keeping the monthly electric bill to a minimum. Although remote, this cottage is hooked up with fiber-optic internet connection to provide you with high-speed internet while visiting. Instead of using a traditional well, this cottage uses purified rain water and multiple 375-gall cistern tanks as the source for plumbing the house. The water has been tested annually and the State Laboratory of Hygiene has certified its potability. There was a 2,500-gallon holding tank installed to comply with county sanitation requirements. In addition to the main cottage, there is a small 1-room cabin that is perfect for a guest quarters. A lean-to style shed was put in along with a fenced in corral for horses. To house all of the equipment needed on the property, there is a 24’x48’ shed with a concrete floor. There is a lean-to off the shed providing for additional storage space. Aside from the cottage and outbuildings, this property has a lot to offer! There are approximately 16 acres of ridge-top Agricultural ground which is currently being used for hay production along with a small amount of corn and soybeans. The Ag ground is currently being rented out for $2,200 annually. In addition to this income, the property features a surplus of mature timber which could be harvested. A forester recently quoted that there was more than $139,000 in marketable timber ready to be harvested and sold. This would be a quick way to recoup some of your initial investment on the property. The 2023 hunting season is currently leased out and provides an additional $3,681 in annual income. This is contracted to increase at a rate of 5% each year. Aside from the income producing side of the property, there is outstanding deer and turkey hunting. The populations are very strong and will provide you with multiple opportunities throughout the hunting seasons. On the east side of the property, there is approximately 1/2 mile of river frontage on the Kickapoo River. This provides you with access to prime trout fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming.
