Rare opportunity to own 82 acres (more or less) of income producing and recreational acres with approximately half a mile of Kishwaukee River frontage, 5 minutes from downtown Sycamore. Located in the NE 1/4 of Section 25 of Mayfield Township, DeKalb County, Illinois. Income is generated from 32 acres of cropland and from 43.9 Conservation Reserve Program acres of native grass (26 acres) and trees (17.9 acres). The unique combination of cropland, native grassland, forest, wetland, and river provides habitat to a host of different wildlife species. AG zoning allows for all permitted outdoor recreational activities such as camping, shooting sports and archery, hiking, hunting, fishing, and ATVing. Hunting lease income also available. The nearly mature CRP trees were planted in 2001 and include black walnut, burr oak, red oak, pecan, pin oak, hickory, silver maple, and swamp white oak. The tree planting provides additional income opportunity in the future as the lumber can be select harvested. The CRP acres capture approximately 90 tons of carbon each year (using a conservative estimate of 2 tons of carbon per acre per year) which may make the property a candidate for carbon capture credits, as those programs continue to evolve. Frontage of 200 feet on Motel Rd. Low real estate taxes estimated at $21.20 per acre. PINs: part of 05-25-200-008 and part of 05-25-200-007. Class B soils: Somonauk, Otter, and Millbrook.
