Property Description

LandGuys is proud to offer a complete-turn-key hunting property with a 3 bedroom home for sale! It’s not often a quality hunting camp like this one comes up for sale in Mercer County. Pope Creek is gaining a serious reputation for producing a lot of trophy class bucks and that makes this property a rare gem that should not be overlooked! This property has nearly 100 acres of timber, secluded fields with over 46 income producing CRP acres, and around 20 additional acres of tillable – this farm has it all.

The homestead has a 3 bedroom, 1 bath, two-story farmhouse, that would work very well as a base camp for the absentee landowner. The home sits atop a small knob and overlooks the Pope Creek valley, where many deer and turkeys are regularly viewed form the windows. The privacy that this property offers is almost without compare as it is nestled into a valley at the end of a dead end township road. There is plenty of space on this site to build an equipment shed to your liking, too.

This farm is absolutely a must see for the serious hunter looking for a place close to town, but completely out of sight! The present owners have a productive hobby farm with dairy cattle and hogs, and a bit of row crop. This property offers an outstanding mix of outdoor recreation and pasture for the hobby farmer or horse lover. If you’re looking for your own piece of heaven, or maybe a place to raise a family in the gorgeous countryside, this could be the property of your dreams!

Home = 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 1,800 sqft, ~1920 yr construction, full basement (part brick, part poured concrete), Hi efficiency LP heat, central air, set up for outdoor wood boiler.
