Beautiful woods, excellent house - hunters dream
109 acres of beautiful rolling woods situated in the heart of Illinois. The land is mostly rolling woods with about 10 acres of pasture/fields. The land has a creek that runs from one side of the property to the other as well as a spring fed pond. The pond has an historical gazebo and well heads. There is an abundance of wildlife on the property, including white tailed deer. In 2012, the biggest buck in the county was shot on this property. The property has a one mile bulldozed path, great for trail riding, 4-wheeling, or hiking.
Down the drive, well off of the road, sits a 2,500 square foot all brick, custom built ranch house. The house was built by the current owner so has only ever had one family living in it. The house features 4 large bedrooms, all with walk-in closets, 2 large full bathrooms, a spacious living room and dining room with a vaulted soft maple wood ceiling separated by a large, double sided brick fireplace and wood stove. The large, well lit kitchen features an eat in dining area, hard wood maple floors and hickory cabinets with plenty of counter space. The entire house was designed with many windows and large glass doors for maximum natural light and airflow. Both the front and back porch have concrete floors with brick pillars and low retaining walls. The house has an attached 3 car heated garage with drains and a concrete floors. The house has a full basement that is roughed-in for finishing with a complete large half bathroom that already has the setup to be easily turned into a full bathroom. The house has central heat and air but is so well built and insulated that it is heated solely by a single wood stove in the winter, keeping heating costs nonexistent as there is plenty of wood on the property to cut as firewood. The basement and garage floors have visqueen under them.
The farm is currently being used as a large horse farm. There are two tan and brown barns, one on each side of the driveway, surrounded by pine trees. The horse barn has an insulated roof and is 36' x 40' with four 10' x 12' stalls and one 12' x 20' foaling stall that can be turned into two stalls to total six stalls in the barn. There is a complete tack/feed room and wash stall. The aisle, tack/feed room and wash stall all have concrete floors. The second barn is a hay/storage barn that is 24' x 30' with a concrete floor, sliding door and walk-in door. There is a 100' x 200' lime-based, sand arena that maintains good footing. There are many small and large paddocks and pastures. Two of the pastures have 12' x 24' run-in shelters that match the barns.
This beautiful farm is located just 3.5 miles off of the interstate and 3 miles from the small town of Carlock. The farm is a 1/2 hour east of Peoria and 15 minutes north west of Bloomington/Normal. There is a golf course just minutes away.
