Property Description

Located just east of Holiday Shores in Worden, Illinois sits this beautiful brick 1,664 +/- square foot ranch residence situated on 144.7 +/- acres. As you enter the residence, you walk into an open foyer with an extra rec room that is currently being used as a guest bedroom. Just off of the foyer sits a beautiful kitchen containing tile flooring, a pantry, stainless appliances, and cherry cabinetry. Unwind from your day in the large open living room with a cozy fire next to a wood-burning fireplace for ultimate relaxation and enjoyment.

Down the hall from the living room, you will find 3 bedrooms and a full bath with a large soaking tub and an enclosed walk-in shower. A 660 +/- square foot unfinished basement containing a 3/4 bath provides additional space for storage or could potentially be finished for additional living space.

Also affixed to the residence, just off of the kitchen, is an approximate 25.5'x16' treated deck with black aluminum balusters that was constructed in 2023. The outdoor shower on the south side of the residence is a great way to clean up after a long day's work in this peaceful and tranquil setting.

A detached garage and two outbuildings are present, giving the future owners an immense amount of space for storing equipment, vehicles, tools, and whatever else one may desire.

Directly behind the residence sit 2 wetland ponds that attract various species of birds and wildlife for your viewing pleasure.

Choose one of the many access points to access the farm where you will find an established trail system for a comfortable and memorable tour. Approximately 75 +/- acres of tillable ground consisting of Class C soils are present on the east and south sides of the farm, which is currently being cash-rented bringing a great annual income. Sherry Creek gently winds through the property from north to south where it adjoins Cahokia Creek on the south side of the property.

Several mature timber pockets are present which provide excellent cover and a high volume of whitetail deer trails. The current owner has taken advantage of tapping into numerous healthy silver maple trees which provide the opportunity to harvest your very own maple syrup. The equipment needed to continue the syrup harvest is available and negotiable with the sale of the property. Numerous elms and sycamore trees offer an abundance of spring-time morel mushrooms.

The central west portion of the property is home to a meticulously maintained prairie currently enrolled in CRP bringing additional income. Several different high-elevation points in this CRP plot would offer ideal future build sites with exceptional views. An additional wetland pond is also present in this portion of the property. The CRP ground offers exceptional bedding for a large whitetail deer population and feeds and attracts various species of birds including quail and turkey which were repeatedly observed on tours of the property. No sweat was spared in the planting and maintaining of dozens of forbs, legumes, grasses, and various trees including but not limited to persimmons, chestnuts, plums, and bur oaks. A complete list of seeds used to establish the CRP ground along with trees that were planted are available upon request.
