Property of the Week

This week's featured property is a 65 acre farm near Orangeville, IL.
This farm consists of 65 acres of rolling hills location with a spring fed creek that runs through the pastures. The home and buildings are located 600 feet off the road on the hill, with private gravel road access. Every side has long views of farm country - pastures, oak trees, Red Angus cows and waving fields. The sun set and sun rise are beautiful in this open sky country, and the stars look like you can reach up and touch them.

The outbuildings are superbly maintained. The large dairy barn has been steel sided and boasts an open cathedral roof. It has been built into the hill so you can drive into the hay mow for easy hay storage, and there is plenty of room below for equipment storage or animals. Forty acres of the tillable land are leased on a year to year basis, providing dependable annual income.

Horse lovers – take note! There is a regulation-sized riding arena already tiled with sand base included on the property as previous owners did riding exhibitions here.

The 2307 sq. foot ranch home has 4 bedrooms including a spacious master bedroom, 1 ½ bathrooms upstairs and 1 full bath downstairs. The lower level family room down is 24 x 22 with all new Berber carpet (April 2008). There are cathedral ceilings in the living room, dining room, kitchen and in the master bedroom, wood paneling throughout the home for a very warm feel, a wood burning fire place in the upstairs living room, and 12x12 Italian quarry tile in the dining room, kitchen, bathroom and utility room. Generous 2 foot overhangs on roof line prevent excessive solar gain in the summer pair with good insulation and all electric heat to help protect you from fluctuating fuel oil or LP costs.

The exterior walls all have 2 x 6 lumber construction. Appliances are included, and the home will have a one year home warranty for buyer’s peace of mind.

Outside, wildlife abounds. Deer roam in and out to drink from the creek. Many species of birds call this area home, including pheasants, quail, red tail hawks, woodpeckers, blue jays, cardinals and about 15 pairs of swallows that grace the property with their acrobatic flying maneuvers and help keep the property free from bugs. At night you’ll hear the hoot owls, crickets chirping and frogs croaking in the creek bed.
