If you’ve been looking for a secluded location full of wildlife but close to Lincoln to build your dream home, this is it! This 60 acres sits between Adams and Havelock on 112th Street, just minutes from the 84th Street Wal-Mart. The front 20 acres currently has 11 acres of row crop production, and another 9 acres of CRP-type grasses. There is a 50’ easement through the front 20 acres for a road to the back 40 acres. The back 40 is established hay meadow with pine windbreaks, a creek surrounded by mature hardwoods, and gently rolling hills. A pond could be sculpted out of the creek bed, which would provide even more beauty and recreational opportunity.
The property adjacent to the south was deeded to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln several years ago. The original Owner had planted numerous rows of pines to add to his veritable forest of hardwoods. The University has left this property as natural habitat, with the exception of the small crop production fields between the tree rows that results in tremendous food plots for the wildlife. A large population of deer call these woods and thickets home. They frequently come on this property to graze and forage the crop ground, and can be relied upon to come to the creek in the back 40 to drink. Numerous deer have been hunted on the property with success, but watching herds of deer grazing in the meadow off your back deck would add to the peaceful, bucolic location. Wild Turkey can be found here, as well as countless songbirds. A nature lover’s dream!
The farm ground is currently being leased by a neighbor for crop production. The owner has taken steps so that the hay fields can be certified organic, should you want to pursue a local organic farming operation.
There are several great sites to build a home on this property. The front 20 could easily support 3 or 4 acreage lots, and the back 40 could support several more. The way the woods and hills are would allow for a feeling of seclusion from the other potential homes. The highest hill, all the way to the east side of the back 40 offers tremendous views in all directions, including the capital to the southwest. Tremendous sunrises and sunsets would color your life on this little piece of paradise.
