52 acre farm with residence and outbuildings (stalls could be added)

Milford, Iroquois County, Illinois

The opportunities for this parcel are limited only to one’s imagination. This is a gorgeous 52 acre estate located in rural Milford, IL (Iroquois County). This property was initially going to be used as a purebred cattle operation and sales facility; however the individuals developing this property were unable to see it to fruition. This property comes with a really nice two bedroom/one bathroom house that is just less than 1,400 sq ft of living space and is “move in” ready. The “main” source of interest in this property will undoubtedly be the 9,408 sq ft building that was originally designed for a cattle sales facility. This facility comes with front office/living area; roughed bathrooms, heated concrete floors, and an upper observation wash rack. On the back side of the facility it has cattle runs, concrete feeders, automatic waterers, and multiple pasture areas. The property also offers a 2,160 sq ft metal barn with office and hay storage, a 12’ x 60’ lean-to shelter, a 40’ x 60’ Quonset shed, and approximately 30 acres of high Class “C” tillable ground that is currently in hay production.
