ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

If you're looking for some acreage with good visibility along the M-72 corridor, you'll want to check out this new opportunity! Ag zoning combined with a 60x80 steel frame building, three phase power, and plenty of allowed uses by right and/or special use permit offer lots of flexibility if you're looking to start or enlarge an agricultural related business. A circa 1900, 3 bedroom, 1 bath farm house has had some grades including a newer furnace, some windows, plumbing fixtures and appliances, and could be a great country home, overlooking a open back yard (think gardens!), and rolling hillsides with a nice mix of pines, hardwoods, and some Christmas trees. Mid 1960's Skyline mobile home with addition on the property too, is livable, but could use some love (and showings may be limited). (Adjacent 117 acres is for sale too, different owner, could be almost a quarter section of land, with rolling topography, hardwoods, pines, and open meadows)
