Check out this old growth, nearly all wooded property just west of Huntingburg, Indiana. This 80 acres has been in the same family for nearly 80 years with no timber or mineral harvest, making it stand out from its neighbors. An additional 40 Acres of adjoining timber may be available as well. Currently enrolled in a Classified Forest program, your yearly taxes are less than the lunch special at the local diner!
The low ground of this property is full of old growth Bald Cypress, Sweetgum, Swamp & Burr Oak, and Hickory, with the high ground consisting of 8.55 acres of highly productive, income producing tillable, currently rented at $135/acre. The current owner has received interest from several loggers but decided to leave this property intact for YOU, the future owner! While paying for a timber appraisal would be advised, there is certainly enough timber standing to pay for a large chunk of this property if need be.
The majority of this property sits in the FEMA floodplain so new construction would be restricted to the tillable land. However, power should be easy to run off the county road back to your selected build site.
Property has not been hunted in a very long time. The owners are not hunters but have seen several trophy class deer around the property over the years. The property has heavily used deer trails throughout. Flocks of wild turkeys are seen in the area regularly as well. With all the rain we have had this spring, there were quite a few wood ducks hanging out in the flooded timber surrounding the ditch intersecting the property, suggesting even more possibilities with this property.
This property would make a great long term investment for someone who wanted to continue the current management program. For the duck hunters out there, you could clear out an opening in the middle of the property and create your very own Arkansas flooded-timber situation right here in Indiana. If mature deer are what you're after, strategic clear cutting would not only help pay for a substantial portion of the ground and work, it would also create the habitat needed to grow and hold a true giant!
Managed timber tracts are few are far between anymore, especially one of this size and quality. If a mature nearly all timbered tract with income producing tillable is what you've been looking for, don't hesitate on this one!
