Why Timber Land Is Valuable


Just as tillable land can be a valuable component to a great hunting tract, having a portion of the property in timber is nearly required.  The exception to that might be out in the plains states where hardwood forested areas are few and far between.

A-0239   |   Acres: 110.18+/-   |   Asking Price: $925,000


Custom Built, Jim Barna Log Home Sitting on 110.18+/- Acres of a Deer & Turkey Hunting Mecca — We are extremely excited, to bring this pristine, Jim Barna, Western Red Cedar Log Home, sitting on 110.18+/- acres to market. The custom-built log home is approximately 3,375 square feet. It features an open floor concept, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a wood-burning fireplace, and is designed for accommodating family and friends. It has a main floor, an upstairs master bedroom, and a walkout basement. There is a vast amount of closet space, unlike any other log home I have been in. The roof is a charming cedar shake shingle metal roof, which will last for many years to come. There was no expense spared, during the building of this log home.

The farm offers top-notch hunting and has an incredible deer and turkey history. By far, some of the best hunting in Randolph County is right here in your own backyard! The property has produced numerous Pope & Young and Boone and Crockett bucks, along with record book turkeys. The number 2 turkey in the state of Illinois, registered with the NWTF-Illinois chapter, was harvested from this farm with an overall score of 128.50. It has several strategically located food plots already in place, which are filled with lush ladino clover and daikon radishes, which were recently planted. The property provides an abundance of natural food sources, such as persimmon trees, acorns, and partridge pea. Couple these with the natural food sources and you have all the reasons for the local deer to call this farm home. There is also an abundance of nut-producing trees, from oaks to walnuts. This farm is ready-to-hunt now!

The scenic Gravel Creek flows through the property, providing ample water for all wildlife. The creek naturally creates several nice pinch-points. It would also be a great place for the kids to play on a hot summer Illinois day. There is a 24 x 30 outbuilding that is currently being used as a two-car garage. It has a concrete floor and electric is already hooked up. Simply put, there is nothing this log home and property does not offer. It delivers spectacular scenery complemented by the privacy and seclusion that many people are looking for. If this sounds appealing to you, contact IL Land Professionals Rod Shepard or Ben Plattner, to set up your private showing.

Small Acreage Hunting Tract with Lodging & Outbuilding — A very nice small acreage hunting tract that could either serve as a nice starter farm or a place to build your new home. For the size of this property, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of deer sign I found, to include jumping several deer while walking the farm. With this property being surrounded by row crops on two sides and section of the timber boasting thick underbrush, the deer should feel extremely comfortable staying on and traveling through this farm. The topography is from flat to gently rolling. There is already a nice trail system established throughout the property, which allows you to quietly enter and exit your stand location. There is no need to even drive to and from this farm as there is a 40 ft Cherokee travel trailer set up and installed with central air conditioning installed. Yes, you heard that correctly, central air has been installed in the travel trailer.

If you are looking for a place to build your home close to all amenities and have the ability to hunt out your back door, this farm meets all those criteria. Most all the essential work has been completed for you; the driveway is established, and electric has been brought back to the property, both 110 & 220. These small acreage tracts do not come along that often, so do not miss out on this one, as it serves many purposes. If you are looking for a small hunting tract or a future home site, give us a call today for your private tour!
