Life in the country on the Mackinaw River rarely comes up, but here is your chance! This beautifully updated 3 bedroom ranch sits on 10 acres with a landscaped yard like you've never seen! There is also an extra 24x24 garage that's insulated, finished and heated AND a 30x40 shed that's insulated and finished too! The backyard is a sight to behold with returning hostas and perennial flowers and bushes that grace the landscape year after year. It's a horticultural treasure and is like having your own private park! There are also amazing trails, gardens, rocks, stone paths, brick walkways, swings, climbing apparatuses, tents & hammocks here too. There's a huge firepit on the ridge of the property that overlooks the lowland which is great habitat for deer, fox, beaver, etc. This one-of-kind firepit area is surrounded by stones brought in by hand. The boy scouts would approve! Trails along the Mackinaw River are here in this outdoor paradise! The friendly neighbors mow a path and let the neighbors use them year round. This ranch is nicely laid out with a convenient drop zone, the laundry room and a half bath located right off the garage. The kitchen is open to the family and has a dining space. All kitchen appliances remain as well as the washer and dryer. The kitchen has a large center island with drawers and storage, plus a large pantry that makes this kitchen efficient. There's also a sliding glass door off the kitchen and a wood stove, which goes perfectly in this home in the woods! Bathrooms have been so nicely updated and the primary bedroom has their own ensuite. All the bedrooms are nice sized with great closets. There's a full basement that is partially finished that has served many uses: a hobby room, playroom, craft area, workbench space, and even a roller skating area too! You'll be challenged to fill up all the storage space here, inducing the crawl space under the newer 4-seasons room addition. That massive 4-seasons room was added in 2014 and has 2 skylights, THREE walls of windows AND a cozy wood stove that allows you to enjoy the private backyard ALL year round. The winter scenes with the snow covered trees will enchant you! All the seasons can be enjoyed outside here with a variety of activities; kayaking, hunting on both sides of the river, sledding in the winter, camping, hiking, bird watching, etc. Great star gazing here with no street lights to interfere! There are also 3 separate patio areas to sit outside, 1,525 sq. ft. in all, including a covered nook, a stamped patio area and a curved brick patio sitting area facing south! This property is zoned agriculture so there are endless options for buyers, plus plenty of outdoor storage areas for cars, machinery, exercise equipment, studio/business, workbench & building spaces, etc. The custom built-in storage areas will remain for the buyer's convenience. All the appliances will remain also, which are mostly newer! Well 2013, Furnace & A/C 2021, Frig, stove & microwave 2023. The rewards of the sellers' dedicated efforts over the years await the fortunate next owner in this secluded country haven. Positioned just 2 miles south of Lexington and approximately 20 minutes from Bloomington/Normal, where convenience seamlessly blends with the serenity of rural living here. If you like Mother Nature, she's waiting for you here!
