Here is a farm that you have to see to believe! Located south of Eldred, in Greene County, Illinois, sits 40 acres of mostly-timber ridge ground, with roughly 4 acres of ridge-top tillable fields, and a great trail system to get around the entire property. The timber stand is a mix of mature 0ak, hickory, and walnut trees that has never been cut. The fields average a productivity index of 109, making them Class C soils. They are currently all grass, with some areas having a mix of clover. With a little work, these fields can be turned into a great mixture of corn and standing beans, with some strategically placed food plots. The trail system doesn't just allow you to get the fields farmed, they have been strategically placed to allow access to all the stands and box blind,as well as getting you around the property without having to enter a couple crazy-thick bedding areas. There are 6 ladder stands along with a box blind (old camper turned blind) included in the sale. All it takes is one walk around the farm to see where and how the deer travel through the property. There are a few great spots to add even more stands or blinds.
The farm has a fully furnished 2013 Fleetwood manufactured home sitting on a concrete pad, with city water, a septic system, and all electric appliances and utilities. Yes, you read that right - fully furnished! All furniture and appliances stay! I am talking couches, chairs, dining table, all Whirlpool kitchen appliances, Kenmore washer and dryer, two queen beds, one full/twin bunk-bed, dressers, nightstands, end tables....I think you get the picture! You can literally move in on day one and have everything you need to either live here or make it your perfect weekend getaway spot. This three bedroom, two bathroom home has an open floor plan and is laid out well. On one side of the open living room/kitchen area is the master bedroom that has a full master bath and nice sized walk in closet. On the other end of the home is a second full bath and two bedrooms. Currently, between the three bedrooms, you can sleep seven people comfortably. The kitchen has a slate-look vinyl floor and is well equipped with a fridge, electric range, dishwasher, and microwave, along with a pantry and all the cabinet space you can think of. The current dining table sits 4, but there is room for a bigger table if needed. There is also a fully enclosed two car garage with enough room to store everything needed to keep your yard in order and the trails kept open. I personally have hunted this County in the past, as well as the south-neighboring Jersey County, and there are definitely big bucks roaming these hills. With a little work to make this farm even better than it currently is, you can ensure that those big bucks will call this farm home. This farm is located on Spanky Road, about one and a half miles north of Macoupin Creek, and 7 miles south of the Village of Eldred, Illinois. It is roughly 3 miles northwest of McMaster Woods Nature Preserve, a 40 acre woodlot set aside by the State of Illinois. The farm is roughly 18 miles northwest of Jerseyville, Illinois, an hour and a half southwest of Springfield, Illinois, and less than an hour and a half north of St. Louis, Missouri. Greene County does not get a lot of National attention when it comes to big bucks, but the people who know about Greene County, know that big deer are here, and there are a lot of them. If you are looking for a place that will not require a lot of work, a place that is quiet, and then so much more than that, give me a call for a private tour. Asking $286,500. Call Eric Brower @ 618-567-1286. Showings by appointment only.
