28234 Brickville Rd., Sycamore IL
Listed at $725,000
Historic, one-of-a-kind property available for the first time since the Greatest Generation came home from the Second World War. The property is a 49-acre MOL homestead with over a quarter mile of the Kishwaukee River curving through it. In the mid-1800s Combs Mill was located on this stretch of river, grinding grain, sawing lumber, and a local landmark that provided a gathering spot for the growing community of Sycamore. On this property today, with Combs Mill long gone, sits a 3 bed 1 bath farmhouse built in 1886. Although the home has not been updated in decades it has been well-maintained and cared for over the years and is accompanied by a steel 36′ x 54′ outbuilding. The home and outbuilding sit on approximately 1.7 acres on the east side of Brickville rd with 12 MOL acres of river and woods and 34 MOL acres of tillable ground on the west side of Brickville. The 34 tillable acres are an ideal candidate for several Conservation Reserve Programs through the Illinois Department of natural Resources that would allow for the planting of trees, native wildflowers, or native grasses while providing passive income. This is a rare opportunity to make a home on your own personal nature preserve only minutes away from the amenities of downtown Sycamore. With the river and woods providing opportunities for fishing, hiking, and kayaking just steps away from the house, and downtown Sycamore providing dining and entertainment a short drive away, this property would make an ideal vacation retreat or rental.
