Property Description

PRICE REDUCED!!!  Stunningly beautiful property that features many of the same high-quality natural areas that attract tourists from all over the world! Purchased as a hunting farm, three generations of families have been able to harvest dozens of deer, turkeys and quail, but hunting is just one activity. Over the last 70 years, the family has named several of these unique features they’ve enjoyed. They include The Balancing Rock, Dutton Pond, Wendell’s Meadow and Frog Pond. The Balancing Rock is probably the most unique because you have to physically jump from rock-to-rock to get onto the Balancing Rock. After you’ve tested your courage, you can grab the fishing poles and relax beside Dutton Pond while you catch a mess of bass and bluegill. As you travel through the property, you’ll notice a series of well-maintained trails, beautiful open meadows and very mature timber. Road frontage is on the east and southern sides giving plenty of options for entry. Large tracts of the Shawnee National Forest border on three sides giving you access to ride horses, hike, hunt or camp on thousands of acres. The farm sits within a short drive to numerous recreational areas. A local farmer is currently maintaining the 57+/- acres of open ground for hay production. The new owner could easily turn the open ground into row crop production for a great ROI and plenty of nutritious food for wildlife! If you’re looking for a beautiful farm with excellent hunting and numerous recreational activities for the whole family, give us a call today and schedule your private tour!
