This 78.5+/- acre parcel on a dead end road in coveted Ithaca Township, has so much to offer. At only an hour's drive from Madison and 3 hours from Chicago, it's a quick commute to your hunting property or second home.
Valley access to the property is from a dead end Township maintained Road (Schauf Lane). With minimal road work, you could access your choice of potential (with proper permitting) building sites with great southern exposure. These options could include a site overlooking the large spring and stream that runs for over 500 feet on the property. Near where the stream exits the property, a small wetland adds to the diversity.
The property has a nearly ideal mix of wood land and tillable acreage for wildlife habitat and hunting. A 2+/- acre field in the valley and a 15+/- acre field on the ridge are perfect for income (seller willing to rent back) or wildlife food plots. The 57+/- acres of wooded land, in two separate wood lots is in the MFL closed program to aid with management and help keep the taxes low. Some selective cutting has been done which helps create a thicker understory in areas and fantastic habitat for a variety of wildlife. A trail system runs through much of the property and could be easily added to. One trail is nicely located to get you from the valley to the ridge (think ridge access for hunting) with minimal wildlife disturbance.
This is simply a nice hunting/recreational parcel with the addition of building potential in a desirable location. Is this your dream parcel? The only way to know is to schedule a showing.
