Property Description

SOLD!! This will make a great starter farm, for someone looking to acquire their first piece of rural land. It could, also, be developed into an incredible acreage for building your dream home. The entrance of this property is narrower, and widens out as you retreat to the west; giving plenty of access, but greatly increasing your sense of seclusion and privacy. A very large steel culvert is situated near an optimal spot to install a permanent driveway crossing. For the hunter, this land offers south-facing slopes that deer love to bed on, as well are some prime locations for food plots, where land that was once farmed has been allowed to start regrowing with tall grasses, shrubs and small cedars. This provides amazing year-round cover for wildlife, and high quality browse, as it is loaded with blackberry, dogwoods, hazelnut and American plum. Around 6.7 acres of ridge top fields could be easily cleaned up to make ready for planting, and a small clearing in the bottom sits right in the cross hairs of heavy deer traffic, making it perfectly positioned for a kill plot. This is one small farm that could definitely produce exciting hunts, every season, as it sits in a major funnel for traffic, very close to a large area of CRP grasses and hundreds of acres of hardwood tree plantings! (See marked up aerial). Possibilities abound, with this 15 acre tract of gently rolling landscape. Located 1/2 mile south of Highway 17, on the west side of 230th St; between Aledo and Viola, IL. Showings by appointment – only! Thank you.
