This property offers an exceptional building location overlooking the rolling hills of Southern Iowa.  For those looking for the freedom to truly enjoy their property, this land comes free of any restrictions or covenants.  So, feel free to bring your dogs, horses, or other livestock, and enjoy the beauty of Decatur County.  Too with the gentle roll of the property, there’s suitable locations for a barn dominium or walkout home style.  Whatever your dream, you can build it here.

Currently, the property is planted to a corn and soybean rotation, which offers an annual income for 2024 of $160 per planted acre (estimated $1,000).  Payments are typically made half up front in March, and the second half in November.  This is a nice bonus to offset taxes, and creates a nice return on your investment.
