Here it is, look no further! The word that will come to your mind after touring the property is simply: WOW! This 70+ acre piece of tranquility has it all. Really, about the only thing missing is you! Where do we start? The parcel is very diverse, it is made up of: mostly hardwoods (red and white oaks, hard and soft maple, cherry, hickory, butternut and birch), an apple orchard, a prairie, 4.5+/- acres of ag lands, some low lands, open areas, and it has the Baraboo River running along the northern edge. In the center of the property is a well-maintained gravel driveway that leads to a 36’x44’pole shed with electricity. The homesite also has a well and septic waiting for your new home or cabin. The views from this building site are spectacular with westerly views! There is great access along all sides of the property: on the north side along a very private country road, along the east side is the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail, and along the west side a utility easement. If you are a deer hunter you know what that means, easy stand access without alerting deer to your presence, one of the secrets to increasing your hunting successes. This is an excellent deer parcel with heavily used deer trails. Just take a look at the trail camera photos, many are from 2021. Quality Deer Management is practiced on this parcel and many of the neighbors. There is easy access throughout the property on a winding trail system. Finding places for your deer stands are not an issue at all. Plenty of hunting opportunities: near the ag fields (your future food plot), create new food plots on the electrical easement and in other open areas, along the ridgetops, in the apple orchard, natural deer travel corridors are easy to spot making this parcel a rutting buck hotspot! Yes, this is a deer hunting property, but it is also a great turkey and small game hunting parcel as well. Trappers will find great success along the river (creek is a better definition) and ridgetops. For someone who is simply looking for a wild parcel to call their own, this is it. Everyone will find enjoyment in planting trees and creating a prairie or two, installing a few Wood Duck houses and Bluebird houses are simple projects that all will enjoy.
This parcel is secluded, yet close enough to the Thriving Communities of Kendall, Hustler, Clifton, Elroy, Wilton and Tomah. What is a Thriving Community? “It’s one that fosters a sense of belonging, that feels alive, engaged, welcoming, and resilient. Where people creatively approach problems that arise and work together to navigate change. It’s one you’re glad to come home to. It’s one you love.” It is only 1 hour from La Crosse, 1.75 hours from Madison and 2.5 hours from Milwaukee.
There is a house on the homesite which is considered a tear-down by the sellers. All the buildings, well and septic are being sold in As-Is Condition. The well and septic were both inspected in 2019 with no issues noted.
