Big timber is the name of the game on this amazing property. Shortly after entering the driveway and crossing the gurgling stream, you’ll be enveloped by Driftless area beauty. Under an hour drive from Madison, 2 hours from Milwaukee and 2.5 hours from Chicago for easy access to this paradise. With 240+/- mostly forested acres, it’s easy to lose yourself in the tranquility. A majority of the parcel is enrolled in the managed forest program (closed to public access) which helps keep taxes low. From 1973-2007, the owners of this property have planted over 100,000 hardwood and softwood saplings. These trees are progressing nicely but the native mature timber is the primary contributor to the significant timber value. The big woods certainly provide plenty of wildlife cover but multiple streams on the property also provide a water source. Small grassy areas around the property, if planted, would make ideal harvest plots for whitetails and turkey. Over 5 miles of developed ATV and hiking trails on the estate provide access to most of the parcel. Improvements on the property include a newer two car garage for equipment storage and a classic red barn. Also included is a 2-story farmhouse. This house doesn’t have running water or sewer so it isn’t being offered as a dwelling but it could be used for storage. A nearby well provides water to an outside spigot so with water and power on the property, the first steps to building your dream home are complete.
