55 acres with approximately 35 acres of upland forest populated with flowering dogwood, white oak, tulip poplar, and eastern red cedar. The rest of the area is comprised of grasses, forbs, and a small pond. These ecosystems combine to make ideal habitat for the abundant deer, turkey, bobcat, and coyote that inhabit the property. Close proximity to wine trails would make this property an idyllic homesite or bed and breakfast, and area has several locations to set up an ecologically friendly solar power system. Most notably the property is adjacent to Drapers Bluff (part of Ferne Clyffe State Park) which is a ~350 acre natural area that is landlocked (no public entry points), making it very isolated. Drapers Bluff contains stunning views, tremendous wildlife diversity, and multiple rare ecosystems making it a truly unique place in Southern Illinois - all right in your backyard!Property is enrolled within the Forest Stewardship Program and taxes are $10.00/year.
