Property Description

SOLD- This 80-acre property in Carroll County is one that checks all the boxes for recreation and investment income, and it is a treasure to behold through every season. Nestled between two towering limestone plateaus and providing expansive hayfields at the highest elevation points, this property encompasses a fertile valley with two-sided access to Carroll Creek, a clearwater stream boasting excellent fishing for all game species and assuring a year-round draw to wildlife. This is a property with character best experienced with a visit. From the moment you enter the lane to the old homestead, the rest of the world is behind you and your valley unfolds on all sides. Excellent building sites exist throughout the property, either near the prior homestead or atop either of the ridges. A metal building remains useful for equipment, and electric is on the property, making immediate use for camping or redevelopment into the legacy property it can be. Substantial stands of hardwood timber add to the investment potential, growing tall and straight due to the southern exposures and topography. Approximately 30 acres are available for tillable lease, farming, hayfields, or food plots. The remaining 50 acres are accessible, remote, and naturally attractive to all wildlife, with significant browsing, varied edges, and abundant natural habitat. Laying as the property does, a natural break exists between the north and south, contributing to opportunities to use the property without disturbance to the wildlife. The topography and character of the parcel further contribute to setting up advantageous pinch points, game trail funnels, and wise use of multiple locations due to wind and weather conditions. Anyone familiar with big bucks knows this portion of Carroll County is home to some of the largest, most mature, and healthiest whitetail anywhere. The genetic pool, low pressure, and nutrition of the area are the key components that yield monster whitetail opportunities. Plentiful turkey, birds, small game, and fishing round out the best of the best in wildlife experiences on this property. Morning deer stand, mid-morning dove field, afternoon upland game or fishing, and evening return to deer stand hunting is a great way to spend a day on these 80 acres and a reality for this blank canvas in need of a new owner to steward the success of a private game refuge in a remote valley of Carroll County. Seldom are there occasions to find such a little gem with so many interesting and profitable aspects, as an investment in the land and as an investment that will support itself in many ways.
