The Shelby County  40: A Rural Paradise Awaits 

Discover your very own slice of country heaven with the Shelbyville 40, a pristine 40-acre parcel nestled just south of charming Shelbyville, Illinois. This property offers a remarkable blend of natural beauty and versatility that caters to all your rural dreams.

Property Highlights:

Abundant Woodlands: A vast majority of this parcel is lush, mature woodland, encompassing approximately 26 acres. It features a diverse array of tree species, offering both mature trees and dense cover. The wooded landscape showcases a variety of terrain, including open oak flats, rolling ravines, and thick drainages.

Open Acres: The remaining 14 acres are dedicated to flat, open spaces. These areas are utilized for row crop production and enrollment in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Notably, two acres of CRP on the southwest corner of the property, making it an ideal location for constructing your dream home or weekend cabin. Road frontage along 1700 East Road and access to power ensure convenience and accessibility.

Wildlife Haven: The southeast corner and half of the property encompass 12 open acres, with 5 acres dedicated to row crops and 7 acres under CRP. This combination has historically attracted an abundance of wildlife, including impressive bucks. The property's strategic positioning amidst surrounding agricultural production funnels wildlife through this area, resulting in well-worn trails and ample signs of deer activity, such as old rubs and scrapes. The fall is when this property really shines as the surronding crops are harvested.

In Summary:

This 40-acre gem is a rare find, offering a harmonious blend of woods, CRP income opportunities, open acreage for farming, and a prime location for your new home or cabin. Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast, a nature lover, or seeking a tranquil retreat, the Shelbyville 40 promises the rural lifestyle you've been yearning for.
