This 57 acre farm is located in Iowa on the Iowa/Missouri line, just east of Pleasanton. There are just enough trees separating the small rural town from the property for a secluded but not isolated feel. As you pull into the drive you get a view of the 1st pond with grass field and the older barn. Barn has good bones but needs a new roof & siding. As you round the corner you get a view of the fenced in garden area. It has 15 planting boxes plus tilled garden plot and apple, peach, and pear trees. Then you see the 2nd pond and all of the buildings and improvements. There is a 16x28 work shop and a 27x30 2 car garage. This property comes with a 2,835 sq. ft. post frame, low maintenance, metal siding and roofed home. The owners built this home in 2007 and have been adding their finishing touches ever since. Entering the house you come into the 10x27 enclosed porch that has several windows and views of the pond and timbered draw. Walking into the 23x23 living room you can see very quickly it is like walking into a cabin with all of the pine wood work throughout the home. The large built in cabinets just add more to the cabin feel. Off of the living room is the 15x29 kitchen and dining area. The kitchen has a 6x12 walk in pantry, double wall oven, stove with oven, commercial 2x3 electric griddle and 2 refrigerators. Off the dining room is the 13x15 master bedroom with attached 13x12 master bath with large soaker tub and 6x9 walk in shower. From there you go into the 10x8 walk through master closet. As you go through the closet you come into the utility room with the washer and dryer hookups, and an additional 8x6 room with air source furnace and hot water heater. As you make your way through the utility room you come into the second 13x10 bath with large sitting bench. The home has 3 more bedrooms that measure 13x15, 13x15, and 13x14 all having large walk in closets. There is also a large 27x17 theater room. From the kitchen there is a short breezeway leading to the 2 car garage, from the dining room there is an exit leading to the 12x36 covered back patio. This home has a 4 concrete floor and energy efficient windows. With the electric air source heating and central cooling the electric bill averages around $250.00 a month year around. This farm is only 15 minutes to I-35, 1.25 hours to Des Moines and 1.5 hours to KC. This property is mostly rolling hills of grass but has just enough timbered draws to draw in deer from the two adjoining timbers on both sides of the property. Several deer and turkey travel between the two timbers. Owners have had several geese and ducks land on the pond during migration seasons. This property would make and excellent hunting lodge for both Iowa and Missouri hunters. Nine Eagles State Park is less than a mile away and would offer more hunting and fishing. The deer hunting in Southern Iowa and Northern Missouri has always offered opportunities for hunters to see big bucks.
