Highly desirable small recreational tracts are few and far between these days! This 24 acre Fulton County property offers everything you can usually only find in a much larger piece of ground and resides in a highly desirable location less than 25 minutes from downtown Peoria.
The 24 acres is made up of 7 tillable, a newly custom designed 5 acre 30′ deep lake with the balance in timber. The lake was completed in mid summer of 2017 by professional lake builder John Howerter. With a substantial amount of runoff the lake is making good progress filling up even with the very dry weather we have experienced through the last 12 months. A stocking program has been established through lake specialist Nate Herman. Another great benefit of the new lake is that you can decide exactly what you would like to place in the lake and manage for trophy fish. There will most definitely be waterfowl opportunities on the lake as well. You’ve got to see it to fully appreciate what the lake will be like at full pool.
The 7 acres of tillable ground can be rented to the adjoining farmer for annual income or could be turned into food plots for the large deer population on the property. There are multiple ideal locations for a sunflower field that would offer great dove hunting. I’ve personally seen many pheasants on the property which are overflow from the neighboring upland hunt club, additional habitat could easily be put in place to hold these birds as well.
There’s a nice stand of mature timber throughout the property with a couple open areas ideal for small food plots. With large blocks of adjoining habitat this patch of timber is a natural funnel for deer to pass through and the amount of deer sign definitely reflects that. The morel mushroom hunting on the property is spectacular as well! The adjoining farmer would be open to a hunting lease option of his 15 acres of timber located just East of this parcel.
There are multiple beautiful locations for a future home or weekend cabin with views of the lake and property. Electricity is less than 1/4 mile up the road and would be easy to have it ran to your desired building site.
Overall we have never seen a property of this size that offers everything this one does. This is a must see property!
