Explore A Personal Paradise, Private Game Preserve, and Executive Home in Whiteside County
This expansive, professionally-designed, executive-style home and quality-wildlife managed property truly does have it all – breath-taking views, luxury amenities, hunting, fishing, proximity, privacy.
Located 1 ½ hour drive from Chicago, just off Interstate 88; near the Quad-Cities, and nestled conveniently just minutes outside Morrison, Illinois, this home and property is accessible to all major metropolitan amenities yet close enough for a family to easily travel to practices at high-quality athletic and academic activities for school. Centrally located, and adjacent to the Rockwood State Park this extraordinary property is situated at the end of a scenic, tree canopied lane, assuring complete privacy… as you explore and enjoy a personal refuge for every possible outdoor activity or entertaining in a magical setting.
The picturesque, private lane opens at the main yard to one of the most impressive home fronts in the county. A circular courtyard of hand-laid paver bricks greets guests and provides the centerpiece for extensive landscaping.
The home’s grand main entrance, accented by vaulted ceilings and flanked by a formal parlor, leads to the heart of this 5,000 square foot home. Guests enjoy a grand dining room with custom built cabinetry, incredible views from every room, the comforts of a professional-grade kitchen area, and a voluminous great room. A cook’s delight, the home is designed for ample work area, storage boasts upgraded appliances. Careful design allows the kitchen to be in the center of all the house activity, yet perfectly scaled.
The detail and size of this home speak volumes, from custom-made metal banisters and stair railing, to the master bedroom and bath suite, luxurious living is everywhere. Massive stonework, touch-to-flow faucets, and warm lighting in every room add to experiences. Stunning views from each vantage point in the home serve to enhance the notion of living in harmony with wildlife and provide perfect opportunities to view each major species in the region.
Deer abound, the result of carefully established, quality-deer management areas, food plots, and adjacent access to a large state park. Herd genetics are strong, boasting thick mass, high forks, and consistent Boone & Crockett-sized bucks. The neighboring state park provides a beneficial refuge, drawing deer from the entire region to browsing plots, bio-diversity in forrestation, and guaranteed havens to bed and breed. Winter brings dozens of deer into the front and back yards, as they daily traverse the topographically varying property. Turkey, pheasants, waterfowl, small game, and fishing in the adjacent Rock Creek, round out the “full house” of wildlife present and available on this private game preserve.
Horse enthusiasts or hikers will love the immediate access to miles of groomed trails in the Rockwood State Park. Embrace the opportunity to expand the lofted pole barn into a horse building or outdoor studio. Meadows and pasture to the south of the home can create sustainable grazing. ATV riders may use the mowed trails for four-wheeled adventures, checking their gardens, food plots, or wildlife with ease.
Tillable acreage is an added bonus to this property. Approximately 13 acres are tillable and join high productivity farmland.
