Property Description

PRICE REDUCED – This is a rare property that features every outdoor recreational activity that the Midwest has to offer. The opportunity to own a 16-acre lake so close to Chicago is impossible to find. The lake is aerated with outstanding fishing and perfect for kayaks and paddle boarding. There is a concrete boat launch for easy lake access along with a swim dock. The acreage has income-producing tillable with timber for deer hunting along with waterfowl shooting on the lake. The home has been recently built and boasts two master suites, each with their own full bath and private deck overlooking the lake. There are six bedrooms total, two of which are categorized as office/craft rooms since they are without a closet. The finishings are beautiful with many upscale details, and the home comes with a whole-house generator as well as a dog run. The lower floor has a full bath and storage area with a rec area for entertaining. The basement is a walk-out, and all bedrooms have views of the lake. The outbuilding is 40′ x 60′, perfect for boats, UTVs, and everything else you could want/need for a recreational property. The acreage has numerous possibilities for income as electricity is buried to the other side of the lake with campsites. This could be further developed into VRBO camp/cabin sites with lake access. Situated just off Routes 80 and 180, this property is easily accessible from the cities.
