Knox County, IN Land For Sale - Hunting/Recreational and Building Land (Dividable)
Check out this new 150+- acre listing in the secluded Beech Hills area of southern Knox Co, Indiana. Widely known as one of the most secluded areas in the county, the stirrings of the local wildlife are the only sounds you'll hear. Beech Hills is one of the few areas in the county where you can't hear any road or rail noise, making it an ideal place for a family get a way cabin or a forever home. This property offers a ton of opportunity. From someone wanting to create a hobby farm, a group of hunters looking for a retreat property that's flourishing with wildlife, or the family looking for a building location surrounded by nature, there is something for everyone on this property.
This listing is made up of two properties that are intersected by Beech Hills Rd, splitting these two properties into northern and southern tracts. The northern tract is 84+- acres and has several trails already created leading back to established food plots that will be planted in oats for this upcoming season. A drainage running E/W intersects this tract with the back half comprising mostly of a heavily wooded plateau dropping off into a creek drainage to the east and south. Several surrounding Ag fields provide ample food sources for the deer and turkey populations while also providing great edge habitat the deer typically use for travel routes.
The southern tract has a great access road on the eastern side of the property. This is a shared road with a neighbor and is currently only being used by their forester for timber stand improvement projects. The eastern and southern 2/3 of this tract is mainly comprised of a series of ridges and drainages that drop down into a flat creek bottom towards the NW side of the property. Game trails can be found at just about every ridge crossing with lots of turkey sign identified throughout the creek bottom. While this southern tract doesn't have any established food plots, there are several flat ridge top areas that would be ideal locations and could be created with minimal work. These would also make great cabin locations for someone wanting to create a true pioneer type setting.
Most of the neighbors in this area are not hunters, with many of them managing their properties specifically for timber value. While these properties have been logged, there are still plenty of mast producing trees standing throughout, mostly along the edge of the drainages. Most of the heavy lifting has already been done on these properties, with the previous owners spending quite a bit of money creating the trail systems and food plots. If you've been looking for quiet seclusion and a large solid block of timber, with no neighbor issues; you'll be hard pressed to find anything like this in Knox Co. Imagine you and your kids having miles of trails and acres upon acres of woods to explore. After spending just a few hours on these properties, its easy to forget where you're at. This is one property that will provide you and your family with a true sense of solitude and peace.
