Almost two miles of Raccoon Creek flows around the boundaries of this 176 acre, one of a kind and completely secluded property. The first of the two homes is a 2006 custom built 2100 square foot two bedroom, two full bath ranch with attached two car garage. Words cannot describe the high quality of craftsmanship and materials used thru out this tastefully built home. It is evident from the abundance of custom maple cabinetry and millwork, solid surface countertops, to the stained concrete floors. The open floor plan with its beautiful tongue and groove cathedral ceiling creates a relaxing atmosphere. The entire house is handicap accessible and built to ADA standards. Other features include an office/sunroom, custom ceramic tiled master bathroom, brick fireplace and central HVAC to name a few. The second home is a turn of the century farm house that has went thru extensive rehabbing from top to bottom since 2000. The floor plan consist of three bedrooms, formal dining, living room, one and a half baths and newer kitchen addition with cherry cabinets. The original trim and hardwood floors have been refinished and are beautiful. Both homes are serviced by public water, have newer septic systems and separate driveways. Two custom built Morton buildings offer many uses. The 36x55 building with a full length porch has a unique man cave/party room on the second floor with a home office underneath on the first floor. The other half is open storage. The 24x30 building with a front porch is insulated with finished metal walls and ceilings making it the ultimate workshop.
The current owners have spent more than 20 years establishing and maintaining land management practices on the entire property. 126 acres is currently enrolled in the Conservation Stewardship Program. Through CSP, participants take additional steps to improve resource condition including soil quality, water quality, air quality, and habitat quality, as well as energy. The Conservation Stewardship Program helps agricultural producers maintain and improve their existing conservation systems and adopt additional conservation activities to address priority resources concerns. Part of the land is also enrolled in CRP. The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is a land conservation program administered by the Farm Service Agency. In exchange for a yearly rental payment, farmers enrolled in the program agree to remove environmentally sensitive land from agricultural production and plant species that will improve environmental health and quality. Contracts for land enrolled in CRP are 10-15 years in length. The long-term goal of the program is to re-establish valuable land cover to help improve water quality, prevent soil erosion, and reduce loss of wildlife habitat. Over the years, thousands of Swamp Oaks have been planted along the Raccoon Creek boundaries within the CRP areas. Native wildlife species such as whitetail deer, wild turkey, waterfowl, beavers and numerous other animals call this protected heaven home. This has been a no hunting property for over two decades. Raccoon Creek offers many activities such as fishing, swimming and waterfowl hunting. The only way to really appreciate a property such as this one is to see it in person. Real estate taxes are currently $1507.40 per year and is enrolled in CAUV for taxes benefits. Owners state all mineral rights are included in the sale. Private showings to qualified buyers only.
