FOR SALE: 175+- Acres Coles County IL Farmstead Home Tillable Wooded Hunting 2729L

Coles County| 175 Acres| $1,695,000| Ashmore IL

Farmstead with Home, Outbuildings, Tillable Land, Hunting and MORE!

This property has something for everyone! Let’s start with the nice 3-bedroom, 2 bath home built by the seller in 1985. This home is on a good road and just 5 minutes from Wal-Mart and Rural King in Charleston. Furnace, water heater, etc. are in a dry basement and the home is on rural water so there is no hassle with a well. Home and entire property has been well maintained, has a nice yard with plenty of big trees, a detached garage and a 42x64 pole building with concrete floor and insulation. There is even an older 16x40 open-front farm building for storing equipment.

There is a total of 112 tillable income-producing acres. Of this, 12.39 acres is enrolled in CRP paying $2746 annually. 100 acres is being farmed. The remaining acreage is wooded with numerous mature trees that could be marketed for timber as well as some grass areas and a pond.

For the serious deer hunter, this property has a world of potential. It is ideally located at the head of a drainage with open ag fields on the east and south sides and road frontage on the north side of the property. Directly across the road is a no hunting sanctuary full of deer.

I have personally leased a hunting property just ¼ mile from this property for the past several years. There is just one property between my lease and this property so I can personally attest to the potential of this area to produce big bucks. In the interest of full disclosure, the deer photos shown on this listing are mine from my lease property ¼ mile away. The seller has never had game cameras on this farm and hunting has been very limited. The layout of this farm with the big open ag fields makes it a blank canvas for a whitetail land manager to come in and develop it into something special using CRP (for both income and to create bedding cover) and strategically laying out food plots. It is my policy to work with any buyer who uses me as their agent to design a whitetail management plan for the property free of charge.

The seller has no interest in splitting or subdividing the property. This could be a real opportunity for a buyer to buy it all and then select the portion of the property they wish to keep while selling off the rest. The home is located in a corner of the property making it very easy to separate the home from the property and sell it. Building lots could also be sold along the road.
