Description

This property is ideal for someone wanting their own little slice of heaven within commuting distance to Des Moines. Located off of Hwy 14, the property has paved frontage, yet it is far enough off the road to offer seclusion and privacy. The potential home site is breathtaking. From the ridgetop view, you’re overlooking English creek and the rolling timber on three sides. Imagine sipping coffee on the back porch every morning as you watch the deer and turkey working up and down the valley below. It’s one you really have to see to believe. From an aerial, the habitat on the farm is deceiving. Located directly between two large blocks of timber, and having 4 ponds, crops, and pockets and fingers of thick brush, this tract is a phenomenal travel corridor. Multiple edges allow plenty of archery set ups on any wind, and access is easy as you’re coming in from the East side. A few trail camera pictures are attached of deer that are frequenting the farm this year, these show the caliber of whitetails in the area! The property has 80 m/l FSA tillable acres of which 38+/- are in crop this year.  The remaining acres are a mix of Pasture (73 m/l acres) and Timbered draws (26 m/l acres).   There is also great opportunity for fishing.  One of the 4 ponds is 3/4 acre and stocked with largemouth bass, crappie, and bluegill.  The owner’s kids have caught several Bass over 7 lbs.
