Property Description

SALE_PENDING_A country home and operating farm that is as peaceful as it is beautiful. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath two-story home has had many updates done since 2009. It offers a gorgeous open floor plan with kitchen and dining room both having oak hardwood flooring and oversized windows to bring the outdoors in. Just off the kitchen, a nice sunroom opens to the living room, with vaulted ceilings, and excellent views of the 1.75 acre pond, just below the house. From this room, you can walk out onto the deck or stamped and stained concrete patio to enjoy your morning coffee while taking in the sunrise over the water. This home will truly make you feel like you are on vacation, the moment you walk in the door. Living room has a nice wood burning fireplace for you to relax by, when colder weather settles in. Main level master suite with full bath. Laundry hookups just off the entry way from attached two-car insulated garage. Upstairs, the views continue to impress from either of two bedrooms, or the bonus media space that could be used as a library, music room, craft space or office. The upstairs also offers a second full bathroom. In the basement, there is an additional living room space that could be set up as a theatre room, or game room. There are also two additional finished rooms, currently serving as non-conforming bedroom spaces, as well as a finished 3/4 bathroom. Loads of space for storage, laundry appliances, and all the mechanicals, as well. Outside the home, a stately covered front porch offers additional outdoor living space, perfect for entertaining guests, or relaxing in the shade.
Home was originally built in 1996. New roof (2008). Remodeled kitchen and sunroom, and new siding (2009). Dormer addition (2012). Furnace and central air (2010). Generac whole house 20KW generator (2010). Well pump (2015), and pressure tank (2018).
With over 55 total acres of (mostly) fenced pasture and hay ground, divided into various paddocks, this farm is setup for rotational grazing or raising a variety of livestock, and has been used for cattle, horses, hogs, and chickens, and would work perfectly for sheep/goats/alpacas/etc. The old dairy barn is in excellent shape and had a new roof installed in 2018. Additionally, a large open-sided pole barn serves to house tractors and equipment, and has stalls for horses, pigs or other livestock in the back and is plumbed with water. An open sided cattle barn, nearby, also has electrical and nearby hydrants and automatic waterer for livestock. A large greenhouse (used for raising meat birds) and a good sized chicken coop are located below the apple orchard, berry patch, and large garden area. Hydrants and buried waterlines seem to be installed in all the right locations, throughout. Two other portable buildings (large chicken coop and run-in shed for horses) are on site and available for purchase separately, should the buyer desire them.
This home is situated in Sherrard School District and is located 2 miles south and 2 miles west of Viola, IL, or 28 miles from downtown Moline, IL. (This property also available as a 34 acre parcel with home and buildings, minus the adjacent 40 acres of pasture, timber, creeks and second pond.)
