Beautiful Country Home and Pond on an Impressive Southeast Iowa Farm
Farmington, Van Buren County, Iowa
Nestled in a quiet area of southeast Iowa lies this special place that quite simply represents the original American dream. This offering includes a five-bedroom, four-bathroom home that overlooks a picturesque horse pasture and pond; and an expansive 158 acre combination of timber, pasture, and farmland. Located in eastern Van Buren County, this farm is only a quarter mile of gravel from the paved road and less than a mile from highway J40.
Designed by one of the region’s leading cattlemen, the home style pays homage to our agriculture heritage. Constructed using timber beams and barnwood accents salvaged from a historic barn that once stood nearby, the home spans over 5,000 square feet across three levels. The main level showcases the impressive column beams and floor joists in an expansive open floor plan. As you step inside from the heated garage, you'll find a spacious kitchen and a main level laundry room. The kitchen flows into a dining area and then a great room with a fireplace hearth made of stone from the original barn.
The upper level has the private master bedroom, with a large walk-in closet, mini split AC, and a large sunlit bathroom. A reading nook on the upstairs landing offers a peaceful area for reading while overlooking the pond and pasture. The finished basement provides four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A central gathering area connects to the patio underneath the back deck. This house has reliable rural water service and fiber optic internet that allows high speed bandwidth for streaming TV and working from home.
Ideal for horse enthusiasts, the farm features infrastructure capable of accommodating up to 15 horses. The main barn includes two large stalls (expandable to four), an exercise area, and a box stall. The second barn offers seven large stalls with runs and automatic waterers, there are also two loafing sheds with water, and a large riding arena. Fencing is in good condition across the property.
With approximately 100 acres of mature timber, 14 acres of tillable land, and multiple pastures; this farm provides ample opportunity to raise livestock, farm hay and row crops, and create a hunting hideaway. The farm is situated in the heart of excellent trophy whitetail hunting. We absolutely love the secluded fields that make unreal food plot sites, brushy bedding thickets, and heavy timber. You can access the entire south property line without going through any timber, which would allow stealth access from the south on north wind hunts. Although the property is more of a working farm in its current state, make no mistake that it could become your exceptional southeast Iowa hunting property. Other acreage configurations are available upon request to suit your budget.
