Property Description

This is not only a very pretty piece of land, but a solid financial investment, with ~$13,440 per year in CRP income. There are ~62.2 acres enrolled in CP1 with the contract expiring at the end of September of 2034. This would also make a wonderful farm for livestock and hay, and the new CRP contract could be bought out, if the buyer desires a different use for the land. Anyone looking for a place to build their dream home, will be hard pressed to find a more attractive spot in Mercer County. The rolling topography gives many options for both building locations with a walk-out basement if desired, as well as suitable sites for pond construction. The timber in the northeast corner has mature oaks, as well as a good stocking of walnut, cherry and other hardwoods. Deer trails are heavy and turkeys regularly roost on the property. A flat hilltop along the inside corner of the timber would make a perfect location for a ~1-acre food plot with easy ingress and egress access. Situated just off of a hard road, and only a few miles north of Aledo, IL, this location is far enough out to be private and peaceful, while still convenient and easy to get to. This land is located in Mercer County School District. (Property will require a legal survey prior to closing for parcel division.)

Address: 1724 120th Avenue Aledo, IL 61231
