We’re pleased to bring you a once-in-a-lifetime property, one that will rival any property currently for sale in the entire state of Illinois! You’ll be hard-pressed to find a property like this one that has eight private, stocked lakes, several ponds, and tremendous hunting and income. The lakes and ponds total approximately 50 acres of water on the property. Having this much open water throughout much of the year provides great opportunities for waterfowl hunting, and we feel that you could easily flood some of the existing fields to enhance your hunting and really bring in the ducks and geese! This world-class property has two residences and numerous outbuildings allowing you to keep it as a functioning farm or to transform it into a recreational paradise. The various lakes are stocked with largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, catfish, trout, and even walleye! Depending on which lake you’re fishing, you could catch any one of these fish. The lakes are anywhere between 20 feet and 60 feet deep helping prevent any type of winter kill-off. The lakes consistently hold water, and several of the lakes wrap through the timber providing lots of structure for fish. Ducks and geese frequent the property, and the deer and turkey hunting is phenomenal! Upon touring the property for the first time, we saw two huge longbeards! This property has a great trail system throughout making it very accessible and easy to navigate for such a large piece of land. There are approximately 270 tillable acres, with another 30 acres or so that could potentially be converted into tillable. Complementing the tillable acreage are about 253 acres of timber and 431 acres of open pasture/grassland. The property currently supports about 300 head of cattle, and the owner believes that it could support approximately 600 head of cattle if managed properly. The diversity of the landscape on this property makes it extremely unique and well suited to hold a variety of wildlife or livestock. With the property being just under 2.5 hours from Chicago, it’s conveniently located for a weekend getaway or for a nearby hunting paradise. At one time, this property was better known as Lindenwood Farm, where it was the top-earning horse farm in the entire state of Illinois! It was home to multiple top-ten sires and was well known as being a premier establishment. If hunting isn’t your thing, it’s great to know that you can carry on the legacy and prestige of using this property as a horse farm. In addition to that, the property would be great for hiking, biking, snowmobiling, riding UTV’s/ATV’s, camping, and a number of other activities. There are two well-maintained farm homes and numerous outbuildings that are ready for your use immediately.
