Property Description

(SALE PENDING)-Just 2 miles south of Interstate 70 in Altamont, you’ll find an exceptional property offering a unique and tranquil setting spanning approximately 65 acres. As you enter the property, you’ll be greeted by a meticulously maintained lawn and extensive landscaping leading up to a stunning 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom home overlooking a picturesque 9.5-acre lake. The home includes a large covered patio just off the kitchen to relish the main body of the lake.

The expansive, high-end home boasts around 4,100 square feet of finished living space featuring two kitchens, two living rooms, two laundry setups plus 2 additional upper level rooms with closets (no external egress) currently used as bedrooms. The layout is thoughtfully designed to accommodate two separate living spaces, with two access points for each.

The main living space is characterized by its elegant granite countertops, hardwood floors, and a vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and living room. It encompasses three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and abundant walk-in storage areas.

The second living space also offers granite countertops, cork flooring, and an extra-large kitchen with a dining area. Additionally, it has a separate living room, a full bathroom on the main floor and upper level, plus 2 additional upper level rooms with closets (no external egress) currently used as bedrooms, and additional storage rooms.

The property includes a large attached garage providing approximately 2,800 square feet of open storage space with concrete floors, a drain, 16-foot ceilings, and oversized garage doors. It is heated, insulated, and features metal-covered walls, making it ideal for storing vehicles, ATVs, RVs, and more.

One of the highlights of this property is the 9.5-acre stocked lake that spans two-thirds of the front of the property. A large concrete bridge extends over a section of the lake. There is a boat launch and a jet ski dock for water recreation. An in-lake pump recirculates the water, creating a tranquil trickling waterfall along the path leading to the pond. Additionally, there is approximately 1 acre of pasture adjacent to the 4-stall horse barn. Behind the pasture, you’ll discover 40 acres of secluded rolling hills covered in hardwood timber complete with trails for exploring.

This property offers a truly exceptional living experience, combining the serenity of a sprawling landscape with a meticulously designed and spacious home, a beautiful lake, and ample recreational opportunities.

Located just 2 miles south from Interstate 70 in Altamont, 20 minutes from Effingham, 1.5 hours NE from St.Louis , 3.5 hours SW of Chicago.
