Property Description

SOLD – Nestled in the rolling valleys of Jo Daviess County, Illinois, this beautiful, large, single tract of land represents a lifetime of work to assemble in one location. Clear streams run through the valleys, hardwood stands provide outstanding habitat, and the mixed agriculture of the fields allow pasture or tillable use. Neatly fit between North Morley Road, West Morley Road, and N. Elizabeth Scales Mound Road, this property has three hardtop access points, provides excellent trails to each of the major areas. A serviceable farmstead home is available as a hunting cabin or the secluded building site could be the basis for your dream lodge. A perfect get-away from the bustle of life, a haven for all species of wildlife, and a long-term investment in the northwestern corner of Illinois, this is the type of property that “checks all the boxes” for those seeking a lifestyle of rural charm and outdoor living.

Once a family homestead and cattle farm, this property still retains serviceable well and home sites, as well as providing several other exceptionally well-located building sites on the property. Long access driveways assure the privacy and opportunities valued for a personal refuge from the world.

The open pastures and characteristically picturesque Jo Daviess County terrain assure you will swell with pride when you take in the views from any part of this property. Sweeping landscapes, breathtaking contrasts, and gently rolling swales are home to every major species of wildlife in the State of Illinois and a source of joy for those that love the outdoors. A multitude of feeding areas, bedding areas, pinch points, and runs give this property the opportunity to be a constant place of discovery. Mixed edge habitat draws and holds huge whitetail bucks, many breeding doe, and several well-populated flocks of turkey. The hunting pressure is low, with little hunting on the property for years. If you are dreaming of a place to develop into world class food plots, quality deer managed areas, and a personal tribute to your commitment to wildlife, this is the perfect location to start legacy in the land.

A short drive to the historical town of Galena, Illinois, a quaint river town long-known for antiques, best-quality dining, and many nationally-significant locations provides all the amenities for you could desire for family and guests.
