99.34 Acres M/L

Listing #16368



If seclusion and privacy are at the top of your list, this 99.34 acres m/l in Madison County provides just that! This property is located between East Peru and Truro on a highly secluded dead-end road with excellent private drive access off Settlers Avenue.

The farm encompasses endless attributes that provide excellent opportunities for hunting whitetail deer, turkey, and other game. Those who have hunted or been in this area can attest to the trophy caliber whitetail that can be grown with the right management and practices. 10 acres are currently planted to soybeans, but there is a total of 27.85 FSA cropland acres that are available for income production through either row crops, hay, or potential CRP acres. This highly maintained and manicured property includes mowed trails throughout with great locations to hang tree stands or put ground blinds. The rolling Madison County topography offers you the ability to access the land in methodical ways to avoid spooking game.

In addition to the hunting value of this property, it would make an excellent place for a weekend getaway riding ATVs, hiking, and other recreational activities. Rural water and electric service are nearby and would only need to be extended a short distance to service the farm. Opportunities of this sort are very limited in today's market - don't miss your chance at this excellent property with great access to Interstate 35 and close proximity to the Des Moines Metro!
