Description

Southern Illinois Equestrian Estate

Overview
This property exemplifies the country lifestyle. You’ll enjoy a cozy yet spacious home on 53 acres with open pastures and plenty of woods. There is an abundance of wildlife and great fishing in the pond. The equestrian barn is a centerpiece for outdoor activities on the property, and the guest house ensures you have plenty of room to host friends and family on special occasions.

Home
Built in 1987, the home sits high on a hill and boasts its own unique style and charm. With 2,488 square feet, this 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom house offers ample space for your growing family but is also manageable for empty nesters. Highlights include a beautiful kitchen, a full basement and incredible views across the property through many glass doors and windows. Be sure to check out the virtual tour to see just how impressive it is!

Guest House
The 1-bedroom, 1-full bathroom guest house will be a hit with your friends and family, but it could also serve as a man/woman cave, a remote office, or independent living for family members. Totaling 660 square feet, it feels quite spacious and features a sizable kitchen and dining area, along with a great living space.

Barn
The 1,728 square foot barn, built by Morton Buildings in 2016, is the ideal setup for the serious equestrian enthusiast. It features 6 stalls, a tack room, a feed room, and numerous great features including cupolas, twin lean-tos, double Dutch doors, skylights, an automatic fly spray system, and more!

Land
With 11 acres of open land and 42 wooded, there is room for all your favorite activities. The property boasts great horseback riding and hiking trails winding through the thickets and open hardwoods. Approximately 8 acres of pasture and paddocks are fenced with top-quality construction and materials. The woods contain a good number of large trees, including some nice white and red oaks, and beautiful dogwood trees are found throughout the property. The landowners have documented over 100 different species of birds on the property, and they host 60 purple martins—a great plus for wildlife enthusiasts. A group of 14 deer is witnessed feeding in the pastures every evening, and wild turkey often visit in the mornings.

Pond
The approximately 1-acre pond adds so much beauty to the property and sits just below the barn. It is well-maintained and stocked with bluegill and bass. A 5+ pound bass was caught on the first trip to the property, and larger fish are suspected to lurk in this excellent fishing pond.

Location
Located in southern Hamilton County, Illinois, and perched on the second-highest point in the county, this place commands an incredible view to the south, with the hills of Shawnee National Forest rising in the far distance. There are some great recreation areas nearby as well, with places like Rend Lake and Garden of the Gods being less than a 45-minute drive away. You will fall in love with the rural lifestyle and country living that this property will provide for generations to come.
