Listed at $1,550,000

Once in a generation opportunity to acquire a home and outbuilding located on 111 acres of income producing and recreational acreage with approximately half a mile of Kishwaukee River frontage. Located in DeKalb County only 5 minutes from downtown Sycamore. Property income of approximately $30,000/year is generated from cropland and Conservation Reserve Program acreage including native grass and trees. 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. The 2022 taxes with homeowner exemption are $8,744.00. 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 2000 SF 4-bedroom 3 bath ranch home was custom built in 1983 and features geothermal heat and cooling and additional 1100 SF in-law suite complete with full kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom on the south side of the English basement providing tons of natural light in the lower level. This was designed, constructed, and maintained as a “forever’ home and just needs your updates and personal cosmetic touches to make into your own forever home or natural get-away to pass down to future generations. A 40′ x 82′ Morton building with heated shop provides ample storage for equipment or toys to maintain or enjoy your unique property with. Schedule a viewing today!
