This is one of those properties that doesn't come along very often. How would you like to own 465 acres of deer hunting paradise? This property is pretty hard to describe because there are so many highlights to highlight!!
We start off with a recently remodeled farm house from the 1800's. In 2007 this home and several outbuildings were almost completely leveled by a tornado. Extremely detailed rehabilitation went into bringing back the uniqueness of this home. 4-5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a formal dining room, a heated garage, and an in law apartment highlight this brick home. There is a second home just east of the homestead that goes along with this sale. It currently is rented out and brings in $700 a month income.
There is a large pasture that is currently being used to raise beef cattle that attaches to a large hip roof barn for animal shelter. Several other buildings are used for machinery and hay storage.
Approximately 225 acres of tillable land is currently rented out to a local farmer at $140 per acre, per year. More land that sits idle could be put back into production to produce more yearly income.
The balance of the acres is where the hunting paradise begins. If you have ever wanted to hunt the big bucks that you could in Kansas, Iowa, and Illinois...well this is the place. This farm runs over a mile north to south, and over a half mile east to west. Most of the habitat/woods/swamp/river sits in the middle of the section away from view of the nearest roads. The Thornapple River and one of its tributaries runs thru this property as well. This property has given up some very large bucks in recent years with no habitat manipulation or food plots in place. Imagine what the hunting would be like if some late season food plots were put in, or some hinge cutting and bedding creation would take place. As a habitat specialist, I can complete all the work that could be done to this property to make it even more spectacular. There are almost 300 acres of tillable farmland that could be used for food plots, new tree plantings, native warm season grass plantings, etc. Do you like to turkey and squirrel hunt? This place is great for that too.
There is too much more to describe here, so come walk this property with me and take a look.
