This 285 acre property with 5,000 sq ft all brick home and 4,700 sq ft barn is one of the most outstanding properties we have ever had the privilege to list for sale here in JoDaviess county. The owners have been meticulous in their care and management of the timber, fields, pond and home. The home has 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths with just too many bonus rooms and unique features to list them all but some of the highlights are it has an exercise room, office, bar, sun room, breakfast dining area, rec room and 3 stall garage. The management of the timber in particular has been exceptional with hundreds of thousands of dollars in timber value as well as many thousands of new trees planted. The property has many different access points and trails to make it easy to get to any part of the property and the wildlife food plots throughout are also exceptional. The deer and turkey numbers are very high on this property and everything that has been done on this property has been done to attract and hold wildlife. There are many trophy class bucks and turkey on the property right now (see pics) The pond is secluded back in the timber and is not only a source of water for the wildlife but is stocked with bass and is also managed for weeds so it can be used for swimming and boating around too. The property is located in arguably the most beautiful sections of the county near the Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort and also a short drive from the historic destination town Galena. The words heaven on earth and paradise are over used in the real estate world but to live on and enjoy this property would definitely put those words on your mind !
