Property ID 3256062


This is a one-of-a-kind property with great hunting, fishing, productive tillable ground, and a gorgeous custom home with a million dollar view. The home was built in 2012 and sits over ¼ mile off the road on top of a high ridge overlooking the Des Moines River Valley. You can see for miles and miles! Everything in this home is top end. Granite countertops, stainless appliances, floor to ceiling stone fireplace, custom woodwork and cabinets, etc. See all the details about the home below. The property consists of 72 tillable acres, 5 acres of food plots, and approximately 50 acres of timber and brush. The tillable acres are currently planted in corn and are producing an income of $9360/year. The timber is very diverse with mature hardwoods, cedar thickets, thick draws, and nice terrain. The property also offers a nice pond with a neat cabin and small pole building. This is the perfect place to hang out, camp, entertain friends, etc. I grabbed a fishing rod out of the cabin when taking pictures and caught 4 nice bass on 7 casts from the dock. You can’t beat that! The property has been managed for trophy bucks for many years and lots of big ones have been harvested and documented. See trail cam pics. There is nothing like slipping out your back door and being in your tree stand in 5 minutes! This farm definitely provides that opportunity! In addition to the great whitetail hunting, there is fantastic turkey hunting and good populations of quail and pheasant. If you’re looking for a secluded property with a high-end custom home, great hunting, fishing and beautiful views, you’ll want to take a look at this one. Call with questions or to schedule a showing.
