Property Description

Close your eyes and imagine sitting on the back porch of your dream home…..listening to the turkeys gobble in the springtime and admiring giant whitetails roaming the property in the fall, and if the stars align and you decide it’s time to go hunt, all you have to do is walk out the back door and head to the stand. Properties like that do exist and this one is located in Randolph County, Illinois, and is truly something you have to see to believe!

As you turn off Plum Creek Road and enter the private drive, the trees open up to a breathtaking 2,967 square foot custom-built log cabin that sits on a 2 acre manicured lawn with finished landscaping, stamped concrete patio area with a fire pit, and a 30’ x 40’ Tru Built shed for added storage. As you walk through the door you will immediately notice the attention to detail and level of craftsmanship that went into this home. The 3 bed 3 bath log home is furnished with hardwood floors throughout most of the main level (kitchen is ceramic tile), vaulted ceilings, and has massive amounts of natural light from the large windows on each side of the wood-burning fireplace and radiused dining room area. The kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets (with deer antler drawer pulls), a small island with sink, and a large walk-in pantry. The main level has a full bathroom with tub and shower, a bedroom with a walk-in closet, a laundry room, and a mudroom with access to the 2-car garage.

As you walk up the steps, you enter the master bedroom with a spacious walk-in closet, full bathroom, and sitting area. The finished basement has a living room area, bedroom, full bathroom, and three storage areas.

From a hunting aspect, it’s going to be hard to find a better small acreage tract in southern Illinois. This first-class whitetail paradise has been under strict habitat management since 2007 and literally has everything you need to grow and attract mature whitetails. The trail system leads you to multiple food plots and right by a 6 +/- acre sanctuary planted with warm-season grasses. While driving the property, you will also notice a small orchard as well as thousands of hard and soft mast-producing trees that have been planted by the owners, many of which have been producing for 6 plus years.

A property like this is what dreams are made of and still has thousands of memories to be made in the future. For more information or to schedule a private tour, give me a call at (618) 294-5015, and prepare to be amazed!
