Property description

Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to own former Shamrock Red Top Farm! This horse property is located approximately 50 miles NW of Chicago and zoned A-1 Agriculture. Located just minutes from beautiful downtown Crystal Lake, this property offers quick access to all of the urban amenities you desire without sacrificing the seclusion and peacefulness that rural settings offer. The Metra train, dining, entertainment, a brewery, shopping, and hometown favorites- The Raue Center and Veterans Acres- are all accessible by bike path. This gorgeous 14+ acre farm has approximately 350' of frontage along one of McHenry County's historic "Scenic Drive" roads. Tucked away next to a serene park and an undeveloped portion of school-owned property, in addition to its unique topography, this farm is quite literally a hidden gem. The expansive acreage offers space for trail riding, fishing in one of the two ponds, or relaxing in the shade provided by the many mature trees. Whether you wish to join the strong equestrian community in McHenry County, are considering agritourism, would like to explore the benefits of urban homesteading, or choose to farm the land...the possibilities are endless at this income-producing farm. No matter your dream, this property offers major income potential with its SIX BUILDINGS. It boasts a 21-stall wood frame stable, including two mare and foal stalls. Most of the stalls contain large, sliding windows, and individual lighting. The stable features over 2,500 sq ft of hay loft space, a concrete center aisle, grain room, tack room/office, wash rack, and a viewing room that overlooks the massive indoor arena (approx 60' x 150'). There are four fenced pastures, as well as an additional field that offers plenty of room for outdoor riding, added pasture space, or use as your own hay field. With its hand-hewn beams and almost 30' ceilings, the vintage bank barn possesses the same rustic charm showcased in many popular wedding/event venues and highly sought after converted "barndominiums." The big, red bank barn features a concrete lower level, natural gas, electric, heat, and a newer roof. This farm also includes a 40' x 60' metal pole barn with concrete flooring and electric. There is also a wood frame pole barn/garage with concrete flooring, electric, propane and heat. There are two homes on this property. One is 3-bed/2-bath, and the other is 2-bed/1-bath. Pre-approval letter or proof of funds required before showings will be confirmed. This property will be sold AS-IS. This property consists of two parcels. Property lines in photos are approximate. Due to current tenants on the property, please allow 24-hrs advance notice for showings.
