If seclusion and privacy are at the top of your list, this 54.7 acres m/l in Dallas County provides just that! The property is conveniently located less than 40 minutes from the Des Moines Metro or just southwest of Minburn, Iowa. Access to the property is through an easement off paved Minburn Road. The easement takes you to a deeded lane that extends 1/4 mile offering a secluded location for an executive building site.

The diverse topography offers spectacular views of the Raccoon River Valley and the Dallas County countryside with 45.22 acres m/l enrolled in Forest Reserve. The Forest Reserve is a property tax incentive known as the Forest and Fruit Tree Reservation Act that exempts you from property taxes on those acres. Utilities including water and electric are along the south side of Minburn Road and would need to be extended to the property. Electric service is provided through Guthrie County REC and rural water is serviced through Xenia with a 4" line.

The property features a 2.95 acre pond designed/engineered by the USDA and has been stocked with Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, and Catfish. There is an abundance of wildlife on the property with adequate cover including mature trees and ample food sources. This highly maintained and manicured property includes mowed trails throughout and around the pond with great locations to hang tree stands or put ground blinds. In addition, Voas Nature Area and North Raccoon River Wildlife Area are located just minutes away for additional recreational possibilities. Property is located in Sections 14, 23 & 24 of Washington Township.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a recreational retreat within a short commute to the Des Moines Metro.
