Located 5 miles South of Chariton this property offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase one of the most outstanding recreational properties in Iowa. This exceptional 358 acres represents a lifetimes' work to create premium large game and waterfowl, unlike any other property in Iowa. This property offers 2 marshes both designed to create some of the best waterfowl hunting you will ever find. Trails have been maintained throughout the property to give easy access to prime white tail country in Iowa. Each trail has been strategically planned out to give high accessibility to the densely populated white tail areas. Property offers access off county gravel road with a level B road running along west border to give access to back side of farm.  Border and road fences have been maintained or built new as needed. Property offers CRP in 4 separate contracts (see contract details below) with approximately 10 acres of  food plots throughout the property offering food sources to maintain all the wildlife. It would be impossible to outline all of the outstanding aspects that this property offers.

Home and buildings also offer great opportunity. Built in 1995, the home is just over 2,300 sq/ft all on one level. The views out the front window are breathtaking. Overlooking the large marsh it is better than owning a lake house. Home offers 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. Large kitchen and living area with windows overlooking the marsh. Furthermore, the home offers 2 car attached garage and other outbuildings for storage and/or shop area. Property also includes a number of smaller buildings for storage. Layout of the home would make a nice layout for private hunting lodge, weekend get away, or wonderful retirement home. This is unlike any other property you will find and offers opportunities like none other.
