The Land

This 49.71-acre m/l property nears perfection in every sense of the word.

A manicured trail system throughout will provide you with a tour of native prairie, mature timber stands, and the meandering creek. There is a west-facing lookout on the back 40 that is perfectly situated to watch the sunset on this beautiful property, with no other dwelling or residence blocking your view.

The current owners have spent the past two decades clearing invasives and nurturing the landscape of the property. Their hard work was rewarded when lush native prairie fields and stands of hardwood timber were finally given the opportunity to thrive. Timber species include multiple varieties of Oak, Shagbark Hickory, marketable Black Walnut, and many more.

All of this is just a short walk out your back door and a short drive from the state capital.

For the outdoorsman and hunter, the property is ideal for hunting Iowa whitetails and turkey. With open areas for food plots, diverse cover, browse, and access from the east, and nestled in the heart of a large section of timber, this property is guaranteed to produce consistent success and hunting memories.
