Listing information updated 6/6/2023 at 12:03pm
Rare opportunity to own a property for sale for the first time since 1888. 42 acres MOL with a farmstead, mature woods, and 2,500' of frontage on the Kishwaukee River ideally located just minutes from Sycamore. There is approximately 36 acres of woods, 5 acres tillable crop land and a 1-acre farmstead with out buildings. When taking a walk to the river through the mature woods with diverse and abundant wildlife on this unique property you feel worlds away from the strain and tension of everyday life, yet the grocery store is a 5-minute drive away. Though, with the 5 acres of tillable ground and AG-1 zoning you could have an entirely self-sufficient estate complete with home raised crops and livestock. If you're not quite ready to turn the clock back 150 years and churn your own butter, this peaceful, picturesque parcel is the perfect place to construct your one of a kind forever home but still honor the history of the land by searching for arrowheads unearthed after a hard summer rain. The old growth hardwood forest has not been hunted in decades making this is a sportsman's or conservationists paradise that boasts of half a mile of river frontage with bald eagles cruising overhead in an area known for small-mouth bass and springtime northern pike. The 3-bedroom 2 full bath farmhouse is in need of updates but has a recently replaced roof, new furnace, well and septic replaced in 2007, and good bones. The farmhouse could be your hunting lodge only an hour's drive from Chicago and a 5-minute Uber from a burger and beer in downtown Sycamore. Schedule a showing and be sure to set aside enough time to walk the 1.5-mile trail loop to see a fraction of what this property offers. Remember to wear long pants and sturdy shoes! Additional acres are available .
