Property Description

Sitting on the highest point in Carroll County, this diverse property has so much potential. It sits on top of the the hill known as Butrick's Bluff, which is named after Carroll County's first settler, Enos Butrick who built the first cabin on the banks of the Raccoon River in 1854. The stories of Enos and the Native Americans and the challenges they faced have all been written down in a book called "Buffalo Trails Plowed Under," adding more to the lore of this property. With 93 acres of secluded pasture and timber sitting a half mile back into the section, there is a very unique opportunity to build a home to get away from it all or simply put up a hunting cabin with the opportunity to hunt for deer and turkey right out your backdoor. And let's not forget the 1/2 mile of private Raccoon River frontage where you can fish, swim, and kayak. Also, there are 70 acres of flat, tillable acres that have a 74.4 CSR2, offering you a great source of income. Finally, the biggest asset on this property is not what you can see with your eyes, but what lays buried beneath the surface. A vast deposit of gravel and sand that has been drilled and mapped with an estimate of 2.3 million tons of deposits. This has a huge income stream potential for you, offering you the opportunity to lease it out to a mining company or mine it yourself. The possibilities are endless with this property. From hunting and mining to farming, you have plenty of ways to enjoy this phenomenal piece and have the potential for an annual income payment as well.
