103± Acres clean woods with trails & food plot area

The start of a home with outbuildings

$800,000.00 Carbondale, IL 62902
  • 103.27 Acres
  • Jackson County


Clean woods with significant stands of hardwoods,  on a rolling topography and trails throughout makes this the perfect recreational property.  The 23.27 tillable acres can also provide income.  There are outbuildings and a structure on the property (a past home) that the current owner has started to rebuild from top to bottom, including a new roof line that give it the gable barn feel and new water lines.  Plumbing and new electric is also in place.  The home is unfinished and ready for someone to create the space they would like to have - currently there are 5034 enclosed sq ft with three large decks including a partial  walkout basement (partial crawl space) ( 28 x 40 with 9 foot ceilings)  with an egress window and roughed-in plumbing.   The current layout has a great room of 28 x 40 with 23 foot ceilings and a large common area of 38 x 27 with 11 foot ceilings.  A  loft with an outer deck from the 2nd floor gives an excellent view of the land.  There is also a large cupola  from the very  top that one can take a ladder to look out from.  With the large amount of space still to finish, the opportunities are endless - possibly a full time home, large cabin, or maybe even an event center.   Whatever the new owner chooses to do with the structure and outbuildings, the setting is excellent with plenty of whitetail deer and turkey. The location of the property is also only minutes from Carbondale, IL.  This property is shown by appointment only - absolutely no access without realtor accompaniment.
