Clay County IL Home on 40 Acres

Begins Closing:

Extremely well-maintained places like this rarely come up for sale - 40 acres with income, move-in ready 3-bed, 2-bath brick home, pole barn and unattached garage. There are no 4-wheeler tracks on any of the property indicating respectful neighbors. Deer beds are located all over the tract; they are obvious because all the farmland has been in CRP for several years and has tall ground cover.

The 27.9 acres of tillable land is enrolled in CRP. The contract expires September 30, 2023. It has an annual payment of $3,126.

The home is move-in ready. It obviously is a little dated but has had a lot of updating done also. Owners of home have lived in it since they had it custom-built.

Offers plenty of privacy from the views from the rear deck. The fact that it has farm fields on all four sides obviously contribute to the sanctuary for livestock.

There is a drainage, deep ravine that runs across the property that seemingly would fit for a design for very large lake.

The farm was set up for partial livestock with the pole barn having an open east side with a full feed bunk/hay running the entire length and an unattached 2-car+ garage which has 2 overhead doors and on the east end is a hobby room.

The home was built originally with a garage attached as the family including grandchildren grew. They turned it into a family/rec room. It could be turned back into an attached garage. On the rear of the house there is a large concrete slab that has a wooden deck built on part of it.

We will accommodate some open houses for viewings at a later date to be announced. Please respect the seller's privacy.
