Spacious executive home and buildings; your private resort just 35 minutes from Omaha. If you love the outdoors, this is the spot for you. Secluded setting with private lake stocked with fish just waiting for your bass boat and acreage ready for your horses. The lake and forest combination creates a natural wildlife sanctuary, emphasizing waterfowl with wild geese and ducks; an average of 40 goslings are hatched to pairs of wild Canadian geese each year on the lake, so you can feed wild geese right in your front yard. Also commonly seen are deer, beaver, owls, raccoon, and many bird species. The home is a magnificent contemporary design on one level to take advantage of the lake view and setting. This spacious home and deck is a perfect offering for entertaining large groups of visitors and family events, and can easily host over a hundred people.
The acreage is located in the Southwest Iowa region called the Loess Hills which looks more like Wisconsin than Iowa; described as a beautiful “resort” type property that abounds with wildlife. The lake stretches through the wooded hills for almost a mile, and has numerous fingers and branches that connect to the main channel. It is feed by creeks and springs, and has approx 3.45 miles of shoreline, is over 35 feet deep in the channel, and has lots of timber cover. Bass, Bluegill, crappie, and catfish are in abundance here. The fishing and wildlife is fantastic here.
Thus, the new owners will have a great retreat for outdoor recreational interests that they would usually have to travel a great distance for, but in this case, you can live here year round since you’re still close to the Omaha Metro area. So come to the best of the best, to hunt, fish, horseback ride, ATV, hike, golf, swim or just relax and enjoy a level of peace and quiet you rarely experience elsewhere.
If you’ve sampled the pictures and videos, you’ll agree, this property is gorgeous, lending to the evaluation changes and usage of forested and cleared areas that are all complemented by the water. Multiple pastures with High-Tensile Smooth Wire fencing and 16 foot gates throughout for easy equipment access. The wooded areas have been improved with dirt work, grass seeding, and dead tree clearing projects that have produced a beautiful park-like landscape that is great for all kinds of uses, including horseback, ATV, and walking activities. For golfers, there are at least 25 practice areas and driving ranges across the acreage that blend into the beautiful park-like setting, giving it a golf-course type appearance.
Seasonal destination for large groups of waterfowl; geese, ducks, heron, eagles and other migratory birds make their regular returns to the lakes. Near the house, there is an EZ Dock system for your boating requirements complete with a diving board for swimming for you and the kids.
