Turn key property in Alexander County with all the tools needed to get it farmed and ready for deer season!

Here's your chance to own an all-around great farm in Southern Illinois! A nice home with a good mix of timber, tillable, and pasture, along with a barn to keep the included toys out of the weather. The tillable ground has been hay the last several years, with the upper field turned into more of an overgrown pasture - a perfect spot for the deer to feel safe.  A little tlc is all that's needed to re-establish some good 4 wheeler trails to get around the hilly terrain with ease. With some work on the upper field, and some great "honey hole" locations scattered through the rest of the farm, you can set up some awesome ambush sites for those big bucks cruising the thick timber searching for the does come this fall. The deer have had no hunting pressure for over 2 years now, and the trail system they have created across the property shows it.  The entire eastern side borders Shawnee National Forest, which just adds to the desirability of this farm and tells you the surrounding pressure is minimal as well. This one owner home was built in 1969 and has been maintained well over the years, with a few updates along the way. It will make a great home for a small family or some buddies that want a nice hunting camp. There is even a concrete pad behind the home that would be good for a camper to sit on, or a shed to be placed. The home is roughly 1200 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath, as well as a study, and a full basement. While the kitchen is a bit dated, the bathroom was fully updated in 2013. A new roof was put on in 2009, while the windows, gutters, and doors were all replaced in 2013. The whole interior was repainted in 2012, with the entire exterior being repainted in 2015. Central air was replaced in 2011, and has been routinely serviced since. There is a full home generator included with the purchase that was installed in 2014 with an extended warranty still in effect. It has been serviced annually. The washer, dryer, and two deep freezers will go with the purchase. The attached carport has room to keep your vehicle out of the weather while also giving you some covered space to enjoy the outdoors. The open faced pole barn is 42x50 and has a slide door on one end. This barn keeps the included Massey Ferguson tractor and John Deere Gator safe from the elements.  This property is located near the town of McClure, Illinois, less than twenty minutes from Cape Girardeau, Missouri, 2 hours south of Saint Louis, Missouri, and less than one hour south from Carbondale, Illinois.  If your looking for a turn key property that has a bit of it all, with all the needed tools to get your work done and food plots ready,as well as being able to get to a major town with all the amenities in under a half hour, this farm is for you!
